Sony has no shortage of dormant intellectual properties these days, but we reckon Ape Escape would sit somewhere near to the top of fans' most requested list. The last mainline entry in the series launched almost 15 years ago on the PlayStation 2, while there have been various spin-offs on the PlayStation Portable and – most recently – the PlayStation Move.

There’s no meaningful new information on the site, so if you were hoping for some kind of game announcement then sit tight. Could this sudden makeover pave the way for future news, though?
