As the great Gwen Stefani once sang: "This s*it is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S." And we suppose that Ape Escape 2 is a bit bananas, seeing as it sees you attempt to scoop up monkeys with a futuristic fishing net. The second game in the series launched on the PlayStation 4 last night as part of Sony's PS2 Classics initiative, where it will set you back £7.99. PlayStation Plus subscribers, however, can secure a 25 per cent discount until 9th August.
There's no word on this releasing in North America just yet, but we wouldn't be surprised if it popped up as part of tonight's planned PlayStation Store update. The port's decent enough, upscaling to 1080p and running at a smooth chop. The controls do feel awkward from a contemporary perspective, however, and the voice acting is beyond abysmal. Still, if you're looking for some early noughties platforming action, then this is top banana.
I remember playing this over ten years ago and getting weeks of fun out of it.And yes I remember the voice acting being cringe worthy!But so glad to see it added to the store.Will be the first PS2 to PS4 port I buy
@Wazeddie22 Awesome! Enjoy!
Really enjoyed this game. Sad there's no platinum. Hope Ape Escape 3 comes as well. I heard at least 2 of the characters are voiced by same people from Pokemon.
Hope it comes out on US PSN today, will have to wait till around noon to find out.
I will treat myself to this tonight! I think I had the 1st ape escape for psp and it was a blast
Major thumbs up for the Hollaback Girl reference.
Awesome. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled wide open for this appearing on the US store tonight.
Man, I love this game....So sad it doesn't have trophies really!
I miss Ape Escape!
I watched the YouTube video on it and it looks like they've done a great job of the port, looks really nice. I've never actually played Ape Escape though and it doesn't actually look like a good game without the nostalgia behind it so I don't think I'll buy
Loved Ape Escape 1 never knew a second was made until now, booted it heard the voicing, yeah, that's horrid, still I have to finish it for completion sake.
Woo-hoo, excited for this one!
