New Afrika trailer reveals nothing, dashing hopes for ivory poaching minigame

12:01 AM on 09.20.2007 // Earnest Cavalli

The above clip is the latest from Sony's almost ethereal safari simulator, Afrika. The video demonstrates the PlayStation 3's much-lauded Fur Engine 9 alongside the until-recently-theoretical Chimæra Haunch Rendering System.

Once you get past all that technobabble though, you're left with ... something. The video never really tells us what you can expect from the title or how it will play -- assuming it is, in fact, something to be played. Honestly, had Sony released an episode of Wild Kingdom from the early 90s with a series of Congoese drum loops set to a rhythm minigame, maybe we could get behind that, but as it stands we're just scratching our heads at whatever the hell that was.

[Thanks to PSU for getting me all excited about a new Bambaataa album. Jerks.]

[UPDATE: Google Video seems to be having some issues causing the video to only work for me about half the time. If it won't play for you, just refresh and try it again. Hopefully GOOG tosses some money at the issue soon.]
