Afrika (aka Hakuna Matata) Getting An English Release In Asia?

hkm Sony Computer Entertainment America hasn’t said anything about publishing Afrika in North America. The game is sort of a big deal in Asia since it’s getting fully localized into Chinese with a brand new name, Hakuna Matata. But, maybe, just maybe the Asian version will have English too. Play-Asia has Hakuna Matata listed with English and Chinese text. The game won’t come out until December so we won’t know for sure until then, but anyone hoping to play this game in English might want to keep an eye out for this release. In the past Play-Asia was right on the money with Crimsongem Saga.

    I have the Asian version of Hakuna Matata, and the only English and Chinese text in the manual is controller layouts. The game is entirely in Japanese.

    @Kilted Moose – The “Asian Version” you have isn’t the localized one. There are two Asian versions. Hakuna Matata (Japanese Language) which came out in August and then a localized version done by SCEH which is coming out in December. We’re talking about the one coming out in December.
