As Jim told us this morning, the PS3 title AFRIKA would indeed be making its way to North America, with Natsume stepping up as the publisher for the release. Now we have the official details and some new images from the North American version for you.
Natsume's first PS3 title will be hitting shelves early this fall. Even though National Geographic is not publishing this title, their mark still remains in the information, photos, and videos packed within AFRIKA. This game was a co-production, so much so that your in-game pictures may make an appearance on an in-game cover of National Geographic magazine.
"We are very excited to be releasing AFRIKA in North America, andthrilled to be working with Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume. "The team has put an incredible amount of work into replicating the African safari experience, and the results are simply breathtaking."
As Jim said earlier, this could make for a refreshing break form the norm lately. Trade in your guns and your corridors for a camera and photorealistic animals.
Check out the new screenshots in our gallery below.
