In Safar'Wii the player assumes the role of an animal photographer visiting animal island with the purpose of sending back photographers of the wildlife to your superior. Players can chose from just two characters, either a female or a male. Once you have named the character, the player is met on Animal Island by Robo-maru, a robot who will guide and transport you around Animal Island. Robo-maru gives a short tutorial in which your task and the controls are explained. The tutorial is clear and easily understandable and the player is given plenty of time to practise the controls.
