Already released in Japan as Furi! Furi! Sarugetchu, the PlayStation Move-powered Ape Escape is finally coming to North American fans of monkey snatching this summer. It is simply called PlayStation Move Ape Escape.
The video game series that made PlayStation thumbsticks mandatory is now one of the first Sony franchises moving to PlayStation 3's motion controller. We wrote about Ape Escape for Move in Tokyo. In New York yesterday, we shot video.
Apes go wild, again, in Furi Furi! Sarugechu—or Ape Escape Shake! Shake!, if you prefer—the first game in the monkey-snatching series to utilize Sony's new PlayStation Move controller. The goal? Grab monkeys! With the Move!
What will the power of the PlayStation 3 add to the monkey-catching and pants-vacuuming gameplay of the lovable Ape Escape series? Way more monkeys with flashing lights on their heads, according to new art released to promote the series.
