Everything I've ever seen of the PS3 safari sim Afrika looks incredible. Granted, I still have no idea what gameplay will be like in this title, but it looks great enough that I find myself drawn to it. I'm hoping it will be a high-definition adaptation of the Pokemon Snap formula. Stop laughing.
While we still have no official word on release, Play-Asia is saying that Afrika will be released on August 28th. This rumor comes to us by way of Siliconera, who says that the importer also managed to nail down the date of Initial D: Special Stage before anyone else.
Of course, there's always the chance that this could turn out to be totally wrong. We'll mark it as a rumor and continue to remain hopeful.
One thing's for sure: this PS3 game will definitely be better than the 1980s hit song "Africa" by rock band Toto. The song is sh*t and the words make no sense at all. This song also ranks in my top ten list of the worst instrumental solos ever to be recorded!
