Chronicling Afrika’s Journey To North America

By Spencer . June 16, 2009 . 9:00pm

Great to see Afrika stampeding stateside. You know, there is another story behind its release. The link between Natsume, Afrika, and Sony Computer Entertainment Japan is a hungry fish!

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

By Spencer . October 30, 2008 . 12:23pm

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 […]

Go to Afrika without ever leaving a hotel room in Haneda

By Spencer . August 27, 2008 . 8:25am

A curious promotion linked Sony Computer Entertainment Japan with the Excel Tokyu Hotel in Haneda. No, Sony isn’t throwing a launch party with hippos and lions in the hotel. The two companies are partnering to provide a “Direct to Africa” experience.   From September 1 to September 30 guests can book a special room that […]

Sony brings Sony cameras to Afrika

By Spencer . August 8, 2008 . 8:10am

Afrika is a photojournalism game and Sony sells cameras. Guess what kind of cameras Eric can choose from in Afrika? Eric is the dude with the beanie in the backseat of a Suzuki Jimny. Yeah, there’s more product placement in Afrika. With these marketing tie-ins I’m surprised that Sony hasn’t announced the game for other […]

Sony officially takes Japan to Afrika in August

By Spencer . June 6, 2008 . 3:14am

We mentioned this as a rumor two weeks ago and we got this one right. The newly renovated official page states Afrika is scheduled to come out in Japan on August 28. So, what exactly is Afrika? It's a safari simulator where you play a photographer with a robotic camera. Seriously. The trailer shows the […]

Sony lifts Afrika out of the sand

By Spencer . May 27, 2008 . 2:53am

The Afrika retail listing we mentioned last week is getting more interesting. Suddenly, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan is getting ready to pull the curtain off the game after an extended period of silence on the topic. They updated the Afrika site with a walking rhino and a “coming soon” label. Oh and it looks like […]

Will PS3 owners discover Afrika in August?

By Spencer . May 23, 2008 . 1:12am

Sony announced Afrika back in 2006, before the PlayStation 3 appeared in Japan. Aside from a few promotional videos with lions walking around we don’t know much about what you actually do in Afrika. Will it be a motion controlled jungle safari? Lion taming RPG? (Actually, that could be neat…) We don’t even know if […]

Pretty looking hi-res Playstation 3 movies

By Spencer . September 25, 2006 . 5:10am

Straight from the Tokyo Game Show are a bunch of new videos of upcoming Playstation 3 games. Most are fluff trailers that don’t show anything except nice looking graphics (example: Gran Turismo HD). If you want to see a game in action see the White Knight Story trailer. The footage is from Level 5’s work […]
