Moshi Monsters is getting a third game on Nintendo handheld formats this year, courtesy of UK developer Sumo Digital and Mind Candy.
GI.biz reports that the as-yet untitled game is heading to 3DS and DS later this year.
Sumo Digital’s creative director Sean Millard said of the announcement, “The Moshi franchise is a really exciting project to be working on. It’s such a successful brand and developing a class-leading game based on the Moshi characters and their world is a fantastic opportunity.
“Mind Candy are enormously supportive of the things we want to do to develop the Moshi universe and it’s great to be involved in such a truly creative partnership. The game’s going to be great – not just for the existing audience but for gamers new to Moshi Monsters as well.”
Mind Candy’s Andy Matjaszek added, “We are hugely excited to be partnering with Sumo on our most ambitious DS game to date. The game will be very stylised, action heavy and aspirational so will hopefully delight our fanbase and beyond.
“Sumo have proven their expertise with the likes of Sega All-Stars and we’re excited to help champion the excellent talent within the UK games development market.”
