When we first got our first glimpse at Afrika a long time ago, it looked as though it was shaping up to be a game that would help set the PS3 apart from the competition. It was suprising to learn that Afrika would make a home for itself in Japan, but a US release was up in the air. Leave it up to National Geographic to pick up the slack and publish Afrika for North America. Oh yes, National Geographic is into games now. Afrika is expected to be available in December.
