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.

In PlayStation Move Ape Escape, players use the Move controller as a fan, monkey snatching net, slingshot and more, all in the name of ape-grabbing mini-games. I've played it. It's about as fun as Ape Escape games get these days.

This version of the motion controlled Ape Escape, which you can see in wand-swinging action right here, will only be available as a download via the PlayStation Network, not on a Blu-ray disc, as it was released in Japan.

I feel so conflicted; I have been saying for a while that if they could capture the charm and magic of the first Ape Escape and make it Move-compatible that it would be wonderful, but an on-rails, non-platformer? That takes away a lot of the fun and completely dispels the adventure. What are they thinking?
