It is a gameside-scrolling, action-adventure platform game rendered in a beautiful 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 exciting 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.
The game will be aimed at a core demographic of 9-12 years but it expected to have broad appeal.
Katsuma Unleashed will be Mind Candy’s 3rd Nintendo DS/3DS title, following the success of its two previous releases, Moshi Monsters™: Moshling Zoo, which topped the UK DS charts for a record breaking 23 consecutive weeks and Moshi Monsters™: Moshlings Theme Park.
On March 20th 2013, Mind Candy signed Sumo Digital for an upcoming Nintendo DS™ & 3DS™ game, which was later revealed to be Katsuma Unleashed.
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 - Sean Millard, Creative Director of Sumo Digital
