Afrika trailer

Afrika trailer

Sony Japan has updated the official Afrika page with this new trailer and a release date (Japan only): August 28. It certainly seems to look and move very nicely, but is this only a virtual photo safari?

They should have licensed "Circle of Life" song from Disney, it would fit perfectly in this trailer :)
The game looks good.

From my understanding it's supposed to be a SIM game, so I guess you create an animal kingdom of sorts. I wonder if you'll be able to pit different animal herds against each other, like having a group of monkeys fight a herd of elephants:)

good job peter molyneux isnt in charge of this game, your character would end up catching aids and malaria

no its not.
its a virtual safari.
an earlier trailer showed some gameplay.
you take pictures and maybe you can go hunting.
but the hunting is not confirmed yet.

Its actually like a 3rd person shooter, but you use a camera instead of a rifle...take shots at the wild life, looked pretty cool...and those graphics are stunning.

Whats the point releasing this in Japan only??? I dont get it...

I wonder what kind of rocket launcher that will be used for the hunting? And can you rocket-jump for some nice giraffe headshots?

I'm really interested in this game, I loved Endless Ocean on the Wii, this seems to be much the same thing, except set in Afrika. Too bad it's not being released outside of Japan, I would have bought it immediatly.

If you want to go underwater there is Aquanaut's Holiday: Hidden Memories.

i'm pretty sure malaria and aids don't get transmitted to other animals, you won't here lion got aids from crocodile or cheetah

how ignorant

*hear (I think, it's not like the sentence makes sense either way), and I'm pretty sure it was a joke.

the game does indeed look very nice. im just hoping its import friendly. i know its got a huge encyclopedia of info on all the animals, which is obviously in japanese, but if the game is perfectly playable, and the language barrier doesnt get in the way, i'll probably buy it. should be a nice game to just chillax with.
Commented on 2008-07-21 20:08:08
If it's in English, I'll buy it even if it's just Endless Ocean set on land.

Wow I thought this gamne had been canceled.

Not sure what to think of it TBH, there is little point bringing it to the west I dont think it would sell that well.

Graphics are pretty sweet, the physics engine lets it down a bit.

Nice... for a screensaver :-)

oh, I guess the person who wrote the article I read was misinformed:( I still would like to see a SIM game like this where you can pit species against each other.


If this is just going to be a virtual safari with possible hunting I hope it doesn't cost much.

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: That's not a fair comparison. You show an absolute in-game compared to a photo of a TV screen. If I take a picture of my tv... (28 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Recore difference is huge. (50 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I made a thread here showing the differences, it can def be seen: [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: In a way you can show the difference. I made a few pics today of Forza 7 demo, Recore and Gears 4 and you can definitely see what you're missing out on wirh SDR. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @rayy: Yes, Larian Studios is great. And D:OS2 had a year of Early Access with constant updates based on the community's feedback. Also, something I forgot to mention, there's already many mods for it (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, HDR is really awesome. But like with VR, it can't be shown in images or videos, you need to check it in person. Try all the games you can, it might give them a "second wind" for you. (5 Hours ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (14 Hours ago)
