Sony renames Afrika 'Hakuna Matata' outside of Japan

  • submit to reddit

Although it's still keeping the name Afrika for its Japanese release next month, Sony's photo safari game will be renamed for the rest of Asia, and quite possibly North America, if the game is ever to see a U.S. release. The new name? Hakuna Matata (translates to "no worries").


Why the name change? Sony has yet to make an official announcement. Perhaps they've changed the name for marketing reasons, aiming to capitalize on a title that has been made popular by a famous catch phrase from Disney's The Lion King. However, until further notice from Sony, we can only speculate.
