Sony quiet on Afrika as August release rumour pops up

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has refused to issue comment on elusive PlayStation 3 title, Afrika, following a listing on Play Asia suggesting that the game hits Japan this August.

The online retail store has pencilled in a August 28 release for the title, which, to date, remains shrouded in mystery as to what it’ll actually offer players, aside from an abundance of exotic wildlife.

When contacted, SCEE told Videogaming247, “I’m afraid there is no news on the Afrika front at the moment.”

Developed by Rhino Studios, Afrika was first unveiled at Sony’s E3 2006 press conference, with a further trailer shown the gaming press at the Tokyo Games Show in 2007. The latter featured the presence of human characters for the first time, taking pictures of various animals from the comfort of their jeep.

Stay tuned for further information on Afrika as it becomes available.
