E3, LOS ANGELES, 17 May 2005 - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) announces today the forthcoming European release of 'Ape Escape®: On the Loose (WT) for PSPTM, the ultimate in personal portable entertainment.
Based on the multi-million selling Ape Escape® franchise, 'Ape Escape: On the Loose' sees more than 200 cheeky monkeys let loose across eight vibrant worlds and 20 fun packed levels. Each and every Monkey has their own unique personality: some are loud and competitive, some mischievous and meddling and others are just cheeky wise guys.
The aim of the game is to capture the troublesome apes before they change world history with their escapades. Players can choose from a range of gadgets and gizmos including a Remote Controlled Car, Tank, Sky Flyer, Radar and Sword to help hunt down the mischievous monkeys. The multiplayer mode allows two players to take on each other in a series of hilarious and highly competitive mini-games including SnowKidz Racing, Ape Ping Pong and Boxing.
Go bananas with the wireless capability and hook up with other Monkey fans to work together to protect the world and keep those chimps at bay... there's no time for hangin' around - these monkeys mean business!
More information will be released by SCEE over the coming weeks.
