Sony’s staple-gunned a June 2011 release date to its long-awaited PlayStation 3 entry in the Ape Escape franchise.

The eponymous party romp will feature PlayStation Move compatibility and includes three all-new mini-games, plus a whopping 500 different monkeys to catch. Apparently, there will be 15 stages in total as you embark on a quest to track down the dastardly primate leader, Specter.

Stay tuned for more details as we get them. In the meantime, have a butcher’s at the first screenshots below.
