Afrika nets a composer

One of the more intriguing games we’ve seen this generation thus far is the PlayStation 3 exclusive, Afrika. In its current state, nobody clearly knows the concept behind the title. From the screenshots provided, all we’ve seen are beautiful landscapes and wildlife from the continent of Africa. Speculation has arisen that the title will amount to nothing more than a realistic take on the classic N64 title, Pokemon Snap. Others believe that there is far more to the title than Sony has wanted to admit, considering that it could actually be any genre at this point.
While almost everything surrounding Afrika is unknown, we can confirm that a solid detail regarding the game has been released. Wataru Hokoyama, a composer based in the Los Angeles area, has been assigned to head the title’s original score. Hokoyama has never worked on a videogame before, but he’s started off with a bang, setting up a 104-piece orchestra which will be the basis for the music of Afrika.
Currently there is no tentative release date set for Afrika; gamers are going to have to wait until a later date to learn about a possible timeframe for launch. We’ll continue to keep you informed on everything regarding Sony's mysterious Afrika.

Please Please let it be a hunting game. That would be quality. I doubt if it will be, but you never know !!

You know how many wildlife activists would crawl up sony's bum if this was a hunting game,It would be like the manchester cathedral thing,but with hippies

look at it this way. one of my greatest inspirations to wanting to make games was to remeake Pokemon Snap. they have the graphics engine already down for me.

Awesome. I'm glad to hear something about this game. I thought it was gonna turn into a Duke Nukem Forever

I would be one of those "hippies" who would be really pissed if this became a hunting game. mostly because many of these animals are endangered and that would make you a poacher. It looks to be some massive simulator, tho. Imagine if all of Africa was in this game and you fly all around. i would love that! Hopefully, it turns out to be something really original and fun.

I dont really know if this game is gonna be a hunting game or a adventure or tec..... but 4 my opinion i think they are bringing this game out to show what the power of the ps3 is

i'd rather it be a "hit things with your car" game. but i think we all know its a wildlife photography game

That crocodile pic skin texture is looking mighty fine.

You know, I had a great rant about hippies and how they are more of a detriment to the world than they are a helping hand so to speak, but since it had one of those supposed "banned words" (which it was probably something dumb, like retard or something) my entire rant got erased and its all those stinkin hippies faults!!! I eat red meat, and in some cases hunt my food, I would eat its carcass raw if i wouldnt hurl up an intestine. Shut up hippie, no one listens to you anymore, why dont you try to serve the country you take for granted rather than spitting on it? I aint sayin join the army, but respect it, and SMOKING WEED AINT RESPECT! ITS BREAKING THE F***ING LAW...unless you got glaucoma or something...then by all means smoke away.../rant

i doubt this will be a shooter game, i think it`b something more based on interacting with the animals but you would have to be careful because some of these animals will eat your asss! Hurry up with some mo info on this game!
