Mind Candy has unveiled plans for “Katsuma Unleashed,” the third Moshi Monsters video game to come from its ongoing partnership with Activision Publishing.
Currently in development at the U.K.-based studio Sumo Digital for Nintendo DS and 3DS, the game is planned for release on Oct. 11 in Europe and Nov. 5 in North America.
Mind Candy and Activision previously worked together for the first two games in the series–“Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Zoo,” which topped the U.K. DS charts for a record-breaking 23 consecutive weeks, according to UKIE GFK, and “Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Theme Park.”
In a move away from the previous two titles, the new game will feature a standalone hero character–Katsuma, the franchise’s most popular Moshi Monster.
“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,” says Andy Matjaszek, senior global marketing manager, Mind Candy. “This time around, with ‘Katsuma Unleashed,’ we’ve broken out Katsuma as a stand-alone character to deliver an all-new, incredible Moshi Monsters game that fans of all ages can enjoy.”
