Following years of platformers, those wacky apes who love to escape are following Jak and Crash's lead and trying out the racing genre. The latest issue of Famitsu contains first details on Ape Escape Racer, now in development for Japanese PSP release later this year.
Officially titled Sarugetchu Piposaru Racer in Japan, this racer features the apes from the Ape Escape series. This time, instead of acting out their favorite movie parts and running away from your trusty net, they race one another, using weapons and items to make sure of a front position.
This isn't a cart racer per se. Rather than boarding a vehicle, the apes equip themselves with tires and an engine, then speed down the track like a car would. The game will offer 46 such "vehicles," each with two forms, one for performing drifts and one specializing in acceleration.
If it can capture the humor of the Ape Escape series, we're up for it! Expect more details shortly.
