Scene from a SAR Tonight broadcast.

Super Animal Royale Tonight (SAR Tonight) is a Super Animal Royale (SAR) in-universe news program. Videos of three episodes of SAR Tonight were posted to the Super Animal Royale "Store page" on Steam. They were presented as three of the standard video trailers used to provide previews of games on Steam, and were presumably created by Pixile, the same software development company which created Super Animal Royale.

The format of the SAR Tonight program is that of a live sports news broadcast, such as the ESPN program SportsCenter. The two hosts sit at a newsdesk, with a video monitor on the wall behind them. The hosts are Donk Patrick, a donkey character, and Howl Michaels, a monkey. These two animated characters share the same art style as the animal avatars of the players in the SAR game. Donk Patrick delivers the news dialog, and Howl Michaels provides commentary. Patrick speaks English (interspersed with occasional natural donkey-calls; their occurrence seems to be an involuntary mannerism), while Michaels speaks in unintelligible monkey-like chatters, although Patrick understands him (and, if one listens closely, one can distinguish, in the monkey-chatter of Michaels, the corresponding English syllables of the words that Patrick interprets).

Most of the duration of an installment of SAR Tonight is used to replay a series of video clips of recent SAR matches. These matches feature members of the online-gaming public, and seem to have been recorded by them, themselves, and then submitted to Pixile. Several clips seem to feature segments of the gameplay of gamers who are live-streaming their gameplay, on a website such as Twitch or YouTube.

During their commentary, the hosts of SAR Tonight refer to the in-universe geography, culture, and history of the SAR game world. Patrick often mentions the island, where the game is set, and he describes the closing of one of its main attractions: the Super Animal World Safari Park.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The names of the hosts, Donk Patrick and Howl Michaels, are allusions to the prominent real-world sports journalists Dan Patrick and Al Michaels, although the SAR characters do not impersonate their namesakes.
  • The in-universe store Earporium sponsored episode 2 of SAR Tonight; the Earporium is a location that players will find in the S.A.W. Welcome Center.
  • At least one broadcast of SAR Tonight was violently interrupted by animals who claimed to represent the Super Animals Super Resistance.
