Ape Escape Moves onto PSN July 5

Sony bringing motion-sensing controller-enabled monkeys-gone-wild game to PS3 next month; demo drops June 28.

It has been nearly five years since Sony's quirky Ape Escape franchise has seen a new installment, but that dry spell will be snapped soon. Sony Computer Entertainment America producer Kumi Yuasa took to the PlayStation Blog today to announce that PlayStation Move Ape Escape will be available through the PlayStation Network in the US on July 5. In Europe, the game arrives today.

The newest Ape Escape was among the first few games announced for Sony's camera-based motion controller for the PlayStation 3, back in 2009. The game sees players fending off a monkey invasion after a UFO wrecks behind their house, with gameplay heavily oriented around the Move controller.

Monkey business that's designed for the Move.

Gamers will have a chance to experience the latest Ape Escape prior to its full release. On June 28, Sony plans to update the PSN with a demo for the game. Also on that day, gamers can purchase an Ape Escape-flavored dynamic theme for $2.99.
