We have had a long distance relationship with Rhino Studios’ shoot-em-up-with-a-camera title Afrika since it came to our attention back in 2006.
The original trailer for Afrika didn’t reveal anything of the gameplay, a topic that became quite the ‘Internet wildfire’ as speculation mounted about what you might actually do in the game. Much later, a second trailer showed us a human character taking photographs, and there was even talk of the game shipping with a ‘pressure mat’ that could sense your movements as you got closer to the wildlife.
We waited with baited breath for news of Afrika’s release into the West. So what happened?
Our friends over at GameZine sent us a little tip last night. They uncovered a listing for a game called National Geographic: Africa.
This new title was touted as ‘being developed by Sony for National Geographic’s new range of game titles’, so it seemed like a fairly safe bet that the previously Japan-only title, Afrika, was being rebadged for US audiences.
