The Jungle was a portable game console in development by Panasonic, and announced in October 2010. With a design being roughly similar to a small laptop, it was developed as a portable platform for MMOs and aimed at players who wanted to play online games on the go. The Jungle was also Panasonics first attempt at creating a handheld console.
It was expected to be released in mid-2011, effectively putting it into the eighth generation of gaming along with the Nintendo 3DS and the then-unreleased PlayStation Vita.
The system was to be the second dedicated video game console released by Panasonic, after the 3DO from 1993. In 1997, Panasonic was developing a new console called the Panasonic M2, but the company cancelled the project.
On March 1, 2011, Panasonic announced the cancellation of the Jungle, due to changes in the market.
