It means no worries: Afrika gets a new name outside of the US



4:47 PM on 07.31.2008

Several of our staff members have been hyped up about the upcoming PS3 title Afrika, although I have to admit I was personally a little disappointed to find out the game was a picture-taking odyssey. I try to avoid judging before playing, however, so I was still interesting in at least taking Afrika for a spin.

Thanks to the sly eye of Siliconera, we found out today that Afrika will actually have a different name outside of the US, much like Siren: New Translation was issued here as Siren:Blood Curse. Apparently the game will be called Hakuna Matata in its Japanese incarnation, much like the carefree romp from Disney classic The Lion King.

See, at this point, you lost me. I'm dancing around the office, singing "It means no worriessssssss, for the rest of your days.......". And yes, before you say it, I am a huge geek and should be shot on sight.

Seriously though ... do you feel good about paying $60 for a game techincally called No Worries? If I want to be relaxed, I can watch Planet Earth for free. Just saying.

[Thanks, Brian]
