Mind Candy has announced another boxed outing for its worldwide kids hit, Moshi Monsters.
Following the success of DS and 3DS titles Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Zoo and Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Theme Park, the firm is once again targeting handheld gamers with Katsuma Unleashed.
The new game will once again be published by Activision Blizzard and is being developed by UK studio Sumo Digital. It will be released for 3DS and DS on October 11th, nearly a month before the November 5th release.
This time, the action will centre around Katsuma, the cat-like creature pictured to the right and the most popular critter in the franchise.
Rather than a collection of mini-games, players will be challenged with a side-scrolling platformer in a new 3D cartoon style. They will battle enemy Moshlings on Katsuma’s quest to rescue the other Moshi Monsters.
The 3DS version will also make use of StreetPass, unlocking new maps and monster attack games starring other Moshi characters.
Moshi Monsters: Moshlings Zoo still holds the record for most weeks at the top of the UK DS chart.
