Not really sure if this is all that exciting a deal but for those of you looking for some relaxing PS3 games it just might be. These are English (Engrish?) version. Play-Asia has a good deal for these games if anyone is looking for them. As far as I know, Aquanaut's Holiday supports trophies but Hakuna Matata does not. You may encounter Japanese text in the online (photo sharing) mode.

Aquanaut's Holiday
- 29.90
Hakuna Matata - 29.90

Be sure and hit up the Play-Asia Coupon Thread for further discounts.

I searched but didn't find anything. Mods please close/lock/merge if this is duped anywhere else. Thanks for looking.

*UPDATE*

Both of these games are now available at NCSX for a comparable price. These are the Korean-English versions as well.

Aquanaut's Holiday - 30.90
Hakuna Matata - 30.90

Both of the NCSX deals were found by Fatbot3 so all credit goes to him. Be sure and say thanks to Fatbot3 for the new deal.

Wow thanks. I have had the chinese Hakuna Matata on my list but didn't think of checking the korean version. Thanks!

Now I've to decide if I want Aquanaut's Holiday...

edit: ordered Afrika. Decided not to get Aquanaut's... I am just not a water person.

Thanks for posting this.

Tempted, but honestly, how good are the English sub-titles and are the trophies only applicable for Japanese PS3 users?? Never imported from playasia, so wanna make sure that I won't be cursing, if these games get localized in North America.

Edit: I just bunkered down and bought both. Thanks CAG

Trophies from other region games work just fine. Both pages say 100% English version, not sure how good it really is.

According to wiki, aquanaut's is heavy on the engrish. Anybody have experience with Afrika?

Is there a difference between the Chinese/English version and the Korean/English version? I saw screenshots of the game from the "Asian" version, but have no clue as to which exact version it was from.

Does anyone know if both games are 100% in English or just parts of it is in English?

Also are the games in English or Engrish?

Totally in for Afrika, looks interesting and my girlfriend has always talked about it and the canceled MMO. Just wish I saw it before I placed my other order. D:

Aquanaut's Holiday is very tempting. Endless Ocean is the only game that makes me want to buy a Wii and this seems similar.

Thanks OP, Already had the Aquanauts but wanted Afrika so picked up both (Aquanauts) for a gift and knocked out my play-asia coupon that was nearing expiration in the process. $61.20 for both shipped is awesome... paid nearly that for the Aquanaut's alone last year.

If they release this games in the US, would the english be the same as these versions, or would they re-edit them? I'm tempted at both these games, but would prefer American releases.

This is really tempting to me, though I have in the past sworn to not ever do business with Play-Asia again.

It's very unlikely that they will unless some third party licenses them. Sony has already stated that they don't plan on releasing either one in the US or Europe.

These games seem interesting,but it doesn't seem like there is much to do in them...For example do get attacked under water,can you fight back,do you have items/inventory system...I'm interested in them both but just wondering how deep the gameplay is.
