Developer Mind Candy has confirmed it is hard at work on the sequel to the record-breaking Moshi Monsters: Moshling Zoo.
The firm says the next title will offer a ‘new take' on the online kids phenomenon when it arrives this year. It follows news that Moshling Zoo has toppled Nintendo's own Brain Training as the longest-running DS No.1.
We are extremely passionate about increasing the brand experience in as many ways as possible,” Mind Candy's senior category marketing manager Andrew Matjaszek told MCV.
[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.”
Matjaszek added that the brand could also come to new consoles: We've loved taking Moshi to the DS and don't see any reason why we wouldn't look to expand the Moshi universe even further in the near future. Stay tuned.”
Moshi Monsters has over 60m registered users online, while the boxed video game tie-in has been No.1 in the DS retail charts for 18 consecutive weeks.
