PlayStation Move Ape Escape demo hits US next week

Try out the Move-powered monkey-themed mini game

US PS3 owners may have to wait longer than their European friends for PlayStation Move Ape Escape, but they can try out a trial version from June 28.


Developed by Sony Worldwide Studios' Japan Studio, Ape Escape "combines exciting colourful action" and "hilarious monkey humour with a host of new features for PS3 - including full compatibility with the PlayStation Move motion controller," Sony says.

Ape Escape sees players work through 15 stages using Move as a Monkey Net, Slingshot, Smasher, Banana Zapper, Ape Vacuum and other mental devices.

the full game hit UK stores yesterday. The US won't get it until July 5, but the PSN demo on June 28 will offer an early look.
