Am I pretty much the only person who thinks this looks fun?

First time I saw a trailer for Afrika, I thought it looked really fun. Perhaps a little pointless, but fun nonetheless. Since then, I've seen barely anything on it. I don't even really know what it's about (except that you take pictures of animals). Are there any objectives?
Is anyone else interested in the look of this game, or is it just too bland?
Ironic thing is, I'm interested in it, but it isn't even being released in PAL territories last time I checked (I live in Oz), yet I iddn't realise there was a huge interest in the game in NTSC territories.
Maybe I'm just interested because I find the animals really interesting and I think driving around the African bush would be kinda fun.

I think it looks like fun..laid back kind of fun.
I was into Endless ocean and Pokemon snap so I am looking forward to this as well.

this is a game that may make me get a PS3.  I'm not a Metal Gear fan so i'm looking for another reason to pick up a unit.  Since i saw the trailer i've been in love with the game.  It looks very relaxing and i enjoy just being absorbed into the environment of a game world.  Looking around and taking pictures (in San Fierro for packages) is one of the things i like about GTA San Andreas.  I hope they bring it to the States.  i heard it isn't open world but more mission based.  Perhaps this and Little Big planet could get me to jump aboard PS3 band wagon.

This is my most anticipated title. You are not alone. But since Play-Asia don't deliver to the Europe, I'm wondering how I'm going to import it to the UK.

It looks like Pokemon Snap, only with more safari and less track.

Are you guys kidding? This game looks AMAZING!
It's Pokemon Snap, with more Safari and Less Track. Throw out all that on rails business and take pictures of Elephants on your own time! Awesome!

Unfortunately not. So far we know that the game will not be released in Europe, and there has been nothing mentioned about a US release. Afrika will be released in Japan on the 28th of this month.

I'm definitely gonna pick up a copy of this one when it comes out. It's not traditionally a game I'd go for, but something about it seems very intriguing.

This is the ultimate adventure game. Imagine hunting all over the place for that elusive prairie dog or whatever, and just as you're about to finally snag a picture of the thing, for big bucks/points/credits, it gets eaten by a rhino. Sweet.
