Mind Candy have confirmed to MCV that they are currently developing a sequel to Moshi Monsters: Moshling Zoo.
The original has seen record-breaking success, remaining atop the UK Nintendo DS software chart for a consecutive eighteen weeks, and the new game will see a “completely new take” on the franchise.
“We are extremely passionate about increasing the brand experience in as many ways as possible,” explained Mind Candy’s senior category marketing manager Andrew Matjaszek.
“[The sequel] offers a completely new take on the Moshi universe. We focus on the key characters in a similar way to Moshling Zoo. However, players will once again experience new locations, new characters and loads of new games to enjoy.”
He added that they could also bring the brand to consoles: “We’ve loved taking Moshi to the DS and don’t see any reason why we wouldn’t look to expand the Moshi universe even further in the near future. Stay tuned.”
