Mind Candy, an entertainment company behind the kids’ franchise Moshi Monsters, today announced Katsuma Unleashed, a new video game created in its on-going partnership with Activision Publishing.
Currently in development at UK-based studio Sumo Digital Ltd. for the Nintendo DS and 3DS handheld gaming systems, the game is planned to hit store shelves on October 11, 2013 in Europe, and on November 5, 2013 in North America.
Katsuma Unleashed is a side-scrolling, action-adventure platform game rendered in a 3D cartoon style and designed to appeal to Moshi fans of all ages across the globe.
In a move away from the previous two titles, the game will feature stand-alone hero character Katsuma. As the franchise’s most popular Moshi Monster, players will embark on a voyage with Katsuma through brand new worlds packed with mini arcade challenges and boss battles.
Along the way, Katsuma will have to battle enemy characters using powerful new capabilities, including Furi’s Smash and Diavlo’s Flight, in order to rescue other Moshi Monsters.
Another feature available in the 3DS version of Katsuma Unleashed is StreetPass secrets – 18 huge, explorable maps and monster attack games where users get to play as each of the Moshi Monsters, each with their own unique set of moves.
