SCEA Producer Kumi Yuasa has announced that PlayStation Move Ape Escape for PS3 is hitting PSN today alongside sharing a new video trailer below.

To quote: I hope you had a great July 4th weekend. Did you all get to try the PlayStation Move Ape Escape demo last week and experience catching monkeys with the PlayStation Move motion controller?

I hope you're ready for even more mayhem, as the full PlayStation Move Ape Escape game hits the PlayStation Store today! We've put a video together introducing the full game, so please take a look.

Let me tell you a little bit about PlayStation Move Ape Escape. There are a total of 15 levels and you will cross between the past and present in pursuit of Specter, the leader of a monkey invasion.

At the end of each mission, a review of your performance will display regarding how many monkeys you caught, your score and the details of any bonuses you have earned.

You have a chance to compare your scores with players around the world, so try uploading your score every time you complete a mission and check the online leaderboards! Don't forget to earn trophies as well.

As you progress through the game, you will unlock mini-games. Each of these use the PlayStation Move motion controller in a unique way and provide a fun change of pace from the story mode. So take a well-earned break from your pursuit of Specter and enjoy those mini-games.

We are very eager for Ape Escape fans old and new to try out the PlayStation Move version of the franchise. Pick up the full ape-chasing adventure today for $19.99, grab your PlayStation Move motion controller and start capturing those mischievous monkeys!
