Wow, I didn't even know they were making another Ape escape game for PS2. I guess I'll have to go download the demo now...

They skipped localization for most of Ape Escape 3, and the heroes were incredibly annoying, but MGS: Snake Escape more than made up for all that.

Is the game supposed be only Fighting robots type? or is it going to have real ape escape action? anyways, APE Escape 3 was kinda cool, with all those things the cheeky monkeys were doing:P also the tranformations thing was also nice. New things are being adopted in the game entry by entry:D

I could be living in Japan and still couldn't care any less about Ape Escape. I'd love to know SONYs reasoning behind this; goals rather.

All of you who apparently don't care: Why even bother to post then? Does your head tell you to click the link to post a comment even though you don't care?

The game better be a lot less childish than Ape escape 3. I love the Ape Escape series, but it's lost its charm and gameplay quircks.

At first I thought it was going to be another downloadable demo, and now I am disappointed.

There should be like a japanese Gamespot or something, this type of news has nothing to do with US or any parts of the world, I mean if this demo was for UK US and Japan etc then this news would some how matter.
