About MONKEY BARRELS
■A challenging, exhilarating action shooting game with 98 different weapons!
Choose two main weapons (such as guns) and two sub weapons (such as grenades and shields) from an arsenal of 98 weapons, and use them as the situation demands in this top-down shooter.
Players take on 22 challenging, action-packed stages, selecting a loadout from an array of distinctive weapons according to their play style and the layout of the stage. Plus, waiting at the end of each area is a massive, unique boss enemy.

Time to get primal! Turn the tables with your Wild Power super move!
When your WP Gauge fills up from attacking or taking damage, you can unleash your Wild Power super move. This is a formidable area attack that not only wipes out surrounding enemies and bullets, but also temporarily boosts your abilities. Using Wild Power when you’re in a pinch is one of the keys to success.

Tons of fun special gameplay sequences like motorcycles and tanks!
In some stages you get to attack using vehicles such as motorcycles and tanks. They bring a whole new feel to the game; riding a bike turns it into a scrolling shooter, and driving a tank is pure explosive fun.

An exciting battle with a giant boss awaits at the end of each area!
At the end of each area lies a powerful and unique boss, made from Crabbenwold Electro’s finest appliances. Unlike the grunts, these bosses will test Masaru’s mettle with a variety of fierce attacks.

To save Kotetsu, Masaru and friends must stand up to the appliance robot army, triggering the Monkey-Crab Wars!
The game takes place in post-apocalyptic Japan, in a world where mankind has been wiped out by the appliance robot forces of consumer electronics manufacturer Crabbenwold Electro. Inhabiting city ruins, animals have inherited mankind’s relics, living out a relatively peaceful existence.
Protagonist Masaru and his companions count themselves among those animals. They too enjoyed carefree, unfettered lives—until one day, when Echizen Crabbenwold, CEO of Crabbenwold Electro and now defacto ruler of the world, kidnaps their friend Kotetsu.
And so, Masaru and the others set out on a journey to get Kotetsu back…thus beginning the Monkey-Crab Wars, pitting primates against the forces of Crabbenwold Electro.

Hanako

Masaru

Her days as a mini-celebrity at Ueno Zoo may be long behind her, but a spirited, tough gal she remains!
A passionately, defiantly frivolous and jovial little monkey. And does he ever love that biker jacket of his!

Shibayama

Kotetsu

The stylish and genius gorilla inventor Shibayama-san is that cool and collected big brother figure Masaru and the others can always count on!
Masaru and Hanako’s cute little friend.
Always kind and thoughtful of others, he is loved by everyone.

It’s monkey versus monkey in the 6-player online battle mode!
I n addition to a Story mode, MONKEY BARRELS also features Banana Scramble, an online competitive mode for up to six players.

▲Attack your rivals and steal their bananas!
T he rules are simple: whoever has the most bananas at the end of three minutes wins. Players can not only pick up bananas scattered around stages, they can also steal them from other players by attacking them. Whether you go after other players, keep your distance and pick up the bananas lying around, or mix things up, there are plenty of tactical options at your disposal.
▲Raise your Monkey Rank and become top primate!
Carve out your own path to victory, and become the top primate!

Beautiful graphics where pixel art meets 3D
The graphics consist of a pixel art base with a 3D layer on top, for an experience that is both nostalgic yet altogether new. Every aspect of post-apocalyptic Japan is presented in stunning detail.
