Ape Escape Fury! Fury!

 Catch 'Em All Soon
 So it was announced today that Ape Escape Fury! Fury! is looking at a summer release and considering that it's been already out in region 2 for what seems like forever it's finally about time. So, what do you guys think? PS Move: Ape Escape title do anything for you? I know it definitely wasn't the most popular early franchise, but just think Gal Gun but will Apes! 
I mean how fun would that be right? right?
  Looks like someone's going to have pick up their "Time Net" again
 Well... At least it's definitely a fitting franchise to be on the Move especially with the whole net mechanic and all that other stuff. But anyway with things like Activision's grotesque Spyro remake in the works, it would certainly appear that a "revitalization" of these classic franchises could totally be a substantial trend if it were to continue. So I'm pretty sure this definitely will end up being used as some sort of gauge for any potential NA release of Ape Escape: 4 as well. Of course that's all dependent on whenever the "thing" finally decides to actually come out or even if at all. 
 
But nevertheless, so far the game's been slated to be a PSN downloadable only title and is going to feature 15 new levels(exclusive to the NA release), and gameplay wise the Move controller will be transforming into all sorts of gadgets along your quest of fighting Monkey tyranny. Which will hopefully help you out while you frantically attempt to "scoop, swat and target the plethora of monkeys". Your main goal of course will be to find Specter though, leader of the monkey invasion and hopefully you'll have bagged around 500 monkeys give or take along the way. But don't worry though! You'll be able to keep track of every single one via your handy-dandy "MonkeyPedia." Haha it 's just screaming originality isn't it?! lol  Well anyway I'm sure they'll have some crazy PS+ benefit to sweeten the pot come summer as well, so in my opinion it's definitely worth at least a potential look.

those monkeys are still a thing? huh, well since dead space extraction wasn't that bad as far a rail shooters go, I guess it could be fun.

looks sorta like it. I'm sure move people will be interested since it's still pretty much slim pickings, and I could swear they canceled Ape 4 guessing they re-announced it though.

Nah it's mostly a rail shooter, but I'm pretty sure I heard something about a party mini game mode. I totally could just be spacing it though.
Yeah I'll be really happy if I'm wrong, but who really even knows? It could just as easily create some buzz for the franchise then do something negative.
