Ape racer revving up on PSP

Select from more than 40 heavily modified monkey cars, based on the Ape Escape franchise's primates, in Saru Get You: Pipo Saru Racer.


Famitsu today revealed more details on Sony Computer Entertainment Japan's upcoming Ape Escape-themed racing title, Saru Get You: Pipo Saru Racer. Instead of racing in traditional cars, the PlayStation Portable game's vehicles are monkeys; the mechanical primates have tires attached to their hands and feet, and players will have 46 types of monkey-machines to choose from.

As the wheels are attached to the monkey's limbs, the handling properties can be changed by positioning the arms and legs in one of several different ways, letting players optimize their simians for speed or power-sliding. Racers can also use their winnings to purchase parts and further customize their monkey-mobiles. Saru Get You: Pipo Saru Racer is scheduled for release on the Sony PSP later this year.
