Devolver Digital has revealed the release date for the mega violent, drum-fuelled, Hotline Miami-inspired Ape Out. You'll be able to unleash your inner Mighty Joe Young on February 7, 2019.

Hotline Miami was an absolute masterpiece, so if Ape Out can even come close, then, we'll be onto a winner. In the trailer below you can see the lo-fi visuals show the orange ape rampage through an area, trying to escape, and taking down all the mean humans that are trying to kill them in the process.

Frantic percussion plays whilst you splatter the blood of the fallen all over the place, like a clumsy painter decorator. 

I couldn't be more excited for this.
