We simply can't fault Namco Bandai's inspired
decision to develop a game based on panda bears
. When it comes to pandas, there is no universal divide in opinion (as there is with dogs
) -- everybody
is a panda person. That kind of popularity can only be gained from being extremely cute and extremely rare.
Launching in Japan on July 31st, purchased copies of Panda-San Nikki
(National Geographic Panda
) will probably be anything but rare. That's because this game is freakin' adorable
, as the latest screenshots in our gallery
demonstrate. There are more pandas on see-saws
, pandas trying to roll on a ball
, pandas using a slide
, pandas in hats
-- in fact, Game Watch reckons there are over 800 animations (pandamations?) on display here. We always thought these wonderful creatures just sort of sat around
, but they seem to be rather active!
