The game hasn't really been treated with the respect it deserves (hey, even if it's rubbish, worse games get better treatment) after Sony only released the snap-em-up in Japan, despite interest from around the world. Natsume have handled the game's port (kudos to them) and basically announced out of the blue today that the game is out in the US.
"We are very excited about Afrika's release today. We know many PlayStation®3 owners out there have been itching to get their hands on the game," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO of Natsume. “It was a real pleasure to work with Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios in bringing this title to North America."</blockquote>

Given the fact we've been waiting for this game for what seems like forever — we got our preorder on right before making this post. We can't wait for it to arrive. Review to follow.
