Many of us Ape Escape fans expected some kind of news for the 20th anniversary of the series this year but unfortunately all we received was crossover t-shirts and images. Not exactly what everyone was hoping for.

Is there still hope for us all? The Japanese Twitter account for Ape Escape dropped a tweet with an uber cute image to celebrate the New Year..along with a good ol’ tease to pique our curiosity about the forthcoming year!

Could our favorite apes be making a return in 2020 after being on hiatus for 9 years? Hold your bananas tight and hope for the best, Brah!
