Mind Candy is to launch its third Nintendo DS/3DS title featuring the Moshi Monsters brand.
Once again working with Activision, Katsuma Unleashed will arrive in Europe on October 11th and in the US on November 5th.
It follows successful titles Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Zoo – which topped the UK DS chart for a record breaking 23 consecutive weeks – and Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Theme Park – which reached number one in 2012 for four consecutive weeks.
The new game is currently in development at UK-based studio Sumo Digital. Players will embark on a voyage with the most popular Moshi Monster through brand new worlds filled with mini arcade challenges and boss battles.
"We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Activision on our third Nintendo title, and we are hugely inspired by the amazing talents of Sumo Digital who have developed some fantastic games in the past," said Andy Matjaszek, senior global marketing manager at Mind Candy. "This time around, with Katsuma Unleashed we’ve broken out Katsum as a stand alone character to deliver an all-new, incredible Moshi Monsters game that fans of all ages can enjoy."
