We've been seeing very vague pictures of Sony's PS3 safari title Afrika for some time now, but they've never really bothered to explain the game in detail. And then, all of the sudden, they suddenly drop a Japanese release date on us.

Sony Computer Entertainment and National Geographic team up to bring Afrika to the PS3 in Japan on August 28th. Players become a photographer/explorer, a member of an animal ecology research team who travels by foot, car, and air balloon to snap shots of the animals of Africa.

Acording to Japanese Web page Dengeki, National Geographic was present during the development phase to oversee the creation and implementation of the CG animals, as well as their motions and surroundings. On top of that, they've also supplied an "Animal library," which lets gamers get a better look at the creatures of Afrika. 

The Afrika Japanese Web page has launched with plenty of new details, images, and more. Check out our gallery below for screenshots from Dengeki.
