When Afrika was formally announced at E3 2006, it raised a few eyebrows. Up until now, the question was: What the heck is this game about?
There have been hints trickled since E3 2006, and the trailer confirms the suspicion. In Afrika, you will be a photojournalist and you will be taking pictures of lions, zebra, rhinoceros and a plethora of other wildlife creatures.
The trailer also shows off some of the game mechanics that you can expect, including a remote controlled robot with a camera strapped to it, the ability to sneak around to snap photos, climbing mechanics (the trailer only shows trees, but you could extrapolate that to include mountainous regions and the like), and showing off a photo and video library.
The photo and video library in the trailer appears to only show full-motion video captured outside of the game. However, it would seem likely that an in-game photo and video library will be a part of the game.
To view this trailer, visit The Able Gamer, or if you have a Japanese PlayStation Network account, you can download the trailer there.
Afrika is set to launch on August 28th, 2008 in Japan. No release dates have been announced for Europe or North America.
