At first it was a game that no one ever expected would make its way out of Japan. Then some word started fluttering around, claiming that National Geographic was going to get involved. But nothing came of it, and Sony's Afrika seemed doomed to never make it to North America.
Today, Natsume stepped up and announced that it would be bringing the safari game over here in the early Fall. It will be the company's first PlayStation 3 release.
In a past life, I probably would have exploded over this news. Afrika was one of the PlayStation 3's great mysteries. Unfortunately, with all the time that has passed since Afrika's Japanese release, I went ahead and imported a copy. It seems kind of bad. Ryan played a bit more of it than I did and had this to say about it, in case you want to know more.
