What won't Sony's simian sidekicks do for attention? The Ape Escape franchise is expanding to new territory, yet again -- this time, the monkeys are starring in an RPG in their next PSP outing. Cleverly titled The Record of Piposaru War (a parody of Ryo Mizuno's classic, we assume), the monkeys must seal three demons that were accidentally unleashed upon the world.

Looking at screens released by Famitsu, it appears that there will be a healthy amount of mini-games present in the game, as well. The Ape Escape games have been slow-coming to the States, so don't expect this to be translated any time soon.
