PS3

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:)

its a virtual safari.
an earlier trailer showed some gameplay.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
