Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess! Announced and Screens

Upwards-scrolling platformer arriving next month on 'minis'
London-based development studio Mediatonic has announced Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess!, a brand-new, original IP due to be available for PSP and PS3 as a downloadable "Minis" title. In the game, the player takes control of a massively powerful (and slightly unhinged) aristocratic demon known only as "The Duke" who is woken up by the sound of his princess being stolen from her heavily barricaded room in his castle. The game is an upwards-scrolling platformer in which the player must chase down giant fleeing monsters and subdue them by crashing into them three times. As the player touches platforms on the way up they will build up a combo, delighting the Duke and increasing his speed and power to enable him to unleash increasingly over-the-top finishing moves when he defeats the monsters. Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess! will take the form of an over-95MB download, making it one of the largest games currently available on the PSN Store and pushing close to the 100MB size limit on "Minis" games. The first screenshots have been inserted in our gallery.
