UK studio Mind Candy is developing a sequel to its hit DS title Moshi Monsters: Moshling Zoo.
As reported by MCV, the title will be a "new take" on the franchise, which has usurped Nintendo’s popular Brain Training as the longest chart topping DS game ever, currently stretching to 18 consecutive weeks.
The sequel is slated to be released later this year.
“We are extremely passionate about increasing the brand experience in as many ways as possible,” said Mind Candy marketing manager Andrew Matjaszek.
“[The sequel] offers a completely new take on the Moshi universe. We focus on the key characters in a similar way to Moshling Zoo. However, players will once again experience new locations, new characters and loads of new games to enjoy.”
As well as a new Moshi Monsters title for DS, Matjaszek also revealed the franchise could expand to other consoles in future.
