Although, unlike the PSP title Sony revealed last week, this one is for the DS and aimed exclusively at kids.
Called AFL Mascot Manor, the DS game is an action/adventure where you play as the team mascot of your favourite AFL club. It’ll be released in July.
I don’t really know what else to say, other than the same company also has a remarkably similar NRL game too.
