It’s been a long time since we’ve had a new Ape Escape game grace the Playstation consoles. In fact, it’s been over a decade. The last true entry was 2008’s Playstation Network Store only Ape Quest, whilst main character Spike made an appearance in Playstation All Stars Battle Royale.
This means a brand new numbred game hasn’t come out since Ape Escape 3, which debuted on Playstation 2 way back in 2005.
Yet there might be some light at the end of the monkey tunnel.
Today, PlayStation Japan has released a video celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Ape Escape franchise.
It comes from a brand new Twitter account @piposaru20th, which first tweeted out asking if there is ‘anybody out there still chasing apes.’ They went on to tweet several more times with Ape pictures and the hashtag #ApesWillEscape.
