While the world waits for King Kong to eventually get around to fighting Godzilla, another brand of apes are quietly waiting for their moment to shine once again. A new Ape Escape
game may be in the works, if some suspicious tweets are to be believed.A relatively new Twitter account by the name of @piposaru20th tweeted out this image, along with the translated caption: “Piposar (20 years since then. I’ve been running around, but i wonder if there’s anyone chasing me anymore.” The image shows a titular ape from the Ape Escape franchise peeking around a tree.
Typically, any reputable news wouldn’t traffic in tweets from unverified Twitter accounts. However, it turns out that Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan’s verified Twitter follows this mysterious @piposaru20th account. SIE Japan only follows about 147 other accounts.
It’s possible that Sony is interested in making a new installment of Ape Escape, or possibly a remaster or remake of a previous installment in the series. MediEvil is the most recent PS1 era fan favorite to receive the remake treatment, and is slated for an October 25 release date.Joseph Knoop is a writer and producer for IGN, and he has no intentions of escaping. Ape out with him on Twitter.
