Super Animal Royale Wiki
SAR Tonight Full

Scene from a SAR Tonight broadcast.

Super Animal Royale Tonight (SAR Tonight) is a news program in the game's universe. Videos of SAR Tonight episodes are currently posted to the Pixile Studios Youtube channel, and were posted to the Super Animal Royale "Store page" on Steam. They are presented as five of the standard video trailers used to provide previews of games on Steam.

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 Char-donkey Super Donkey character, and Howl Michaels, a Char-monkey-white Super Howler Monkey. These two animated characters share the same art style as Super Animals within the game. CharacterIcon DonkPatrick Donk Patrick delivers the news dialog, and CharacterIcon HowlMichaels 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. A common theme in the series is the ongoing rivalry between the Super Animal Super Resistance and the S.A.W. forces.
