If you’ve ever fancied yourself as a wildlife reporter, spending your days taking photographs of wild animals, then be sure to check out the cunningly named Safar’Wii when it hits the shops in February 2010. In the game you get to live as a wildlife reporter on Animal Island, exploring and taking snaps of the various species that live there. Carry out assignments from your editor on Animal News, save your photos in your album and learn facts about the animals that you encounter, which will include giraffes, elephants and lions. You’ll also find that the more photos you take, the more the animals will come to like and trust you. You might even get to hug a panda or ride an elephant if they really like you!

“Safar’Wii makes your dreams of getting close to wild animals a reality,” said Emma Jenkins, product manager. “It gives kids the chance to interact with animals, see them in their natural habitats, and learn about them in an exciting and fun way.”
