Afrika Finally Coming to the US, For Real This Time!

AFRIKA_BoxArt_US_RPboxart_160w.jpg Along with a full hands-on preview of the game, IGN is reporting that Natsume has obtained the publishing rights to bring Afrika to North American retail sometime later this year. Hurray!

Afrika is the long-in-limbo PS3 safari sim released last summer in Japan and thought to have been picked up by National Geographic’s gaming division for US release late last year. Obviously that didn’t happen. So kudos to Natsume for picking this game up, it should fit in nicely amongst the publisher’s stable of niche offerings. Can’t wait to see more details and media come out from E3 next week!
