Safari's up: PS3 stunner Afrika detailed, dated for Japan

Is it a game? Is it interactive art? Is it Ludwig's most anticipated PS3 release of 2008? 1UP has shed new light on Afrika, the long-awaited safari-themed title from Rhino Studios.

Digging through the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu, they discovered that the game – now officially slated for August 28 in Japan – will allow players (or, um ... viewers?) to switch between first-person, overhead, and animal-eye-views of the gorgeous African plains. What's more, players will be able to travel on foot or behind the wheel of off-road vehicles while snapping photos.

The prettiness that is Afrika will hopefully hit the US this year, be it as a boxed or PSN release. We expect to hear more on Sony's plans for this unique title at next month's E3 expo.
