PlayStation Move Powered Ape Escape Coming Soon To You

imageSony sent out a preliminary a list of PlayStation Move titles about a year ago. An Ape Escape game was on the list and it’s on deck for release. Over Twitter, Sony announced Europe is getting Ape Escape PS3 (working title) in Q3-Q4 2010.


While the tweeter didn’t give specifics, s/he posted hints and concept art.


  • Hint 1: Has something that no other Ape Escape games have…
  • Hint 2: A picture is worth a thousand words, so…. [concept art below]
  • Hint 3: It’s a keeper (smiley face)




Something no other Ape Escape games have? Could that be PlayStation Move support? The “it’s a keeper” line made me think of a zoo keeper. So, I’m imagining an Ape Escape game where you have to keep manage captured monkeys and wash their underpants.


In Piposaru 2001, an unreleased in the West Ape Escape game, Spike had a giant vacuum cleaner which sucked the underpants off crazed monkeys so he can throw them in a giant washer machine. “If you loved "Piposaru 2001" you’ll love Ape Escape PS3,” the ApeClub account tweeted.

    My friend told me last week”What did ever happen to Ape Escape series?”

    Well he got his wish I guess.

    Ape Escape has always been one of my favorite series. So excited for this!

      Agreed. I love the series, and Piposaru 2001 was great. I have no interest in Move, but Ape Escape could convince me to try it out if this ends up being true.

    hmm, I don’t see myself biting for this. I’ve got a Wii so I don’t need another system to do the same thing. Plus paying extra for motion controls in unappealing….unless games start supporting this left and right, I just don’t see why i would invest in one.
