PlayStation Move Ape Escape Lands This Summer

It has been announced over on the US PS Blog that the next game in the Ape Escape franchise will be heading to the PS3 this summer, designed exclusively for PlayStation Move.

“Fun and accessible for gamers of all ages, get ready to dive into 15 new levels and watch your PlayStation Move controller transform into an assortment of gadgets while you scoop, swat, and target monkeys in pursuit of Specter, the leader of the monkey invasion.”

Sounds like good fun for the family!

  1. Yes! Was wondering when we would hear about this after those Japanese Move launch trailers a while back. Move Heroes, Ape Escape (and hopefully) Sorcery, not bad Sony!

    • Could still do with a bit more support though I’m looking forward to getting my mits on Killzone 3 and a Sharpshooter.

      • My bro has it – I am gonna get it too – it is AWESOME!!!!

      • My thoughts exactly. I like playing with the Move controller but there aren’t that many titles out there that I would buy that support it.

  2. Good memories on Snake Eater on PS2 just came flooding back!

    Ill be buying this game for definite :-D

  3. Just had a quick look at the posts on both the EU and US blogs. Anybody have any indications why it’s releasing on PSN in US, but releasing on disc in EU? Seems very strange (although, i suppose, something similar has happened before … Siren: Blood Curse was only released on PSN in US, whereas EU had both disc and PSN versions)

  4. Shame it’s just the on-rails Ape Escape game that Japan have had for a while (it’s apparently not that good).

    Now what I really want is a proper PS3 Ape Escape (4?) which Sony mentioned a while ago.

    • I liked the demo on the Japanese psn store and it worked great with the move.

      • Demo you say ?…. [logs into Japanese account]

  5. all I want from ape escape is some sort of version of the monkey football mini game in ape escape 2, me and my mates put away so many hours on that back in my school days
