Ape Escape sequel headed for PS2
Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has announced that it is developing Ape Escape 2 for the Sony PlayStation 2. The game will be the true sequel to the original that contradicts the earlier release of Ape Escape 2001, which involved players taking the pants off monkeys with a vacuum cleaner. Ape Escape 2 will have you catching apes using fishing nets and several other gadgets.
The game will now also feature a supporting character to help Hikaru, the cousin of the previous main character Kakeru, during the game. No release date or pricing has been announced for Ape Escape 2, however.
