Afrika will be rechristened Hakuna Matata, at least in Asia.
lol lion king for the win
this really sounds like a joke...... but nope
I hate this idea/name so much, I wont buy it if its the name/title in US. I wont support stupidity. Afrika was a great name.
This is a stupid idea... -_-
I love it! I'm gonna go watch The Loin King right now! Then play PixelJunk Eden!
It means no worries for the rest of your days!
wait what? i thought it was only coming out in Japan?
"Hakuna M-a-t-a-t-a" are 2 Swahili WORDS which when translated to English mean "No Problem(s)" and NOT "no worries",as was falsely stated throughout the highly inaccurate Lion King series."No worries" would translate to "Hakuna M-a-t-a-t-i-z-o". There's literally NO POSSIBILITY of Disney suing Sony because Disney DID NOT invent the Swahili LANGUAGE :|
Yes the title sounds stupid but thats not stopping me from buying the game day 1. You guys are ridiculous to write off a game just because of its name. I'll let you know what's a lot worse than Hakuna Matata. MAG. How generic is that title? Massive Action Game. What about Hardware 2? LOL.
This must mean the Asian version has English language, so Sony do this to make sure no importers would want to get it. SONY I DON'T BELIEVE YOU, I JUST DON'T BELIEVE YOU WTF
A new entry to the great book of "asian people not understanding american connotations for words" is born.
great now we need simba in the the front cover
Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze SAY IT WITH ME!!!!
It means no worries For the rest of your days
its our problem free....
-Philosophy!!!! Hakuna Matata! Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata! Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata! Hakuna Matata! Hakuna matata! Hakuna Matata! Hakuna--
A whole new world! A dazzling place I never knew But when I'm way up here It's crystal clear That now I'm in a whole new world with you Now I'm in a whole new world with you -.- (. ) (. ) ( .) ( .) oops wrong place.
"Hakuna matata b*tches!"
Remember THE LION KING on MegaDrive? Imagine they remake it exclusively for PS3..omg! Simba in 1080p!
There were a lot of disney-movie-based-games that were totally awesome back in the days. I remember buying a disney game-bundle for pc with Aladdin, The Lion King and the Jungle Book, 200% awesomness. Some of the best platformers game from Disney Interactive back in the days imo.
I agree, the Lion King game was actually pretty awesome. I don't know if a remake would be needed though. PSN makeover perhaps?
Wow that's horrible.
I sometimes feel sorry for sony because there allways getting sh*t games
sh*tty names like PP.
Seriously what's up with this. What do they want us to do? Dress in drag and do the hula!?
Someone have too much Sake?
this is one of those instances where I refuse to believe the internet.
"It's a wonderful phrase"
hakuna what!? LOOOL pointless
Can't help but laugh at this, what a wonderful phrase.
i hope they get the shyit sued out of them this makes me not want to buy the game
Um... You hope who will sue who and for what reason? Lawsuits do not work the way you are thinking. If I make a game called "Dynomite" does that give the producers of "Good Times" a right to sue me? I think not, mate. Just accept it, don't make such a big deal out of a video game, and move on with life.
How are they going to get sued for naming the title "no worries" in Swahili, it's a very common phrase you know. Just because the use the same phrase as a song title in the Lion King does'nt mean they have a copyright on it... it's like copyrighting the usage of "mañana mañana" in spanish :P
really hope this is not the title for america. then again it sounds like a title that will get a lot of media and consumer attention. this game will be cool either way, most likely gona get it.
Is this for real? Awesome. I always wanted to have a game called Hakuna Matata, LOL!
i smell BS! don't take any notice of this nonsense
Mickey Mouse Lawyers will be busy
If true then: Booo!
if lk wasnt so old a remake would rock the megadrive game was very col and had some memerable scenes in it i hope afrika gets a eu release if its what i think which is a photo safari to nice soundand musi it could be very restful
wow afrika was much better hakuna matata like a joke
what a stupid name. however, i LOVE the Lion King. god i hope it keeps the name Afrika for a US or UK release (if it's not released in the US, i'll just import it).
how original... at least with the achievement ripoff they change the name... but on this game they literal copy and paste the name from lion king...
you dont belong to the circle of life but in the rrod circle
but Disney didn't invent the Swahili language, like Viktor E was saying. So no one "literal" copied anyone. Fail.
Respect to all who love The Lion King I expect to see a warthog, a meercat and a lion cub running by at some point in the game.
That's funny as hell! o_O
Thats erm i don't know........
Wow, this better be a joke. Edit: I'm calling BS on this, unless I see an official statement made by Sony, no way this is true
what a wonderful phrase.....
Paging Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella...
I could see Afrika and LBP blowing the minds of Wii owners and causing a shift.They're both games someone could play with their kids and they have insane graphics.
People could take a virtual trip and see the great nature and animals. If they release it on PSN for a fair price it could be interesting...
they can name it whatever the hell they want, i'll still want it. afrika was a great name though, simplistic and effective.. :/
