Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania shows off familiar worlds in new trailer

B-A-N-A-N-A-S

Sega has dropped a brand new trailer for its monkey business remaster Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania, which is currently in development for PlayStation, PC, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch platforms. AiAi and the whole gang will return to their twitchy, stunt-rolling ways on October 5 — news that will no doubt bring happiness to Super Monkey Ball fans the world over.

As you can see from the trailer, titled “Wondrous Worlds”, Banana Mania is… well… it’s a Super Monkey Ball title, and will once again see the monkey gang (their words) indulge in more high-speed, physics-defying adventure. Whiz through the Bubbly Washing Machines, soak in the atmosphere of Jungle Island, and jet off into outer space to confront Dr. Bad Boon on his own home turf: Space Colony. Banana Mania will feature comic-book style cutscenes as well as brand new playable characters in order to add personality, spirit, and cheer to the infuriating inertia puzzler.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania intends to be a true celebration of the entire Super Monkey Ball franchise and will feature classic stages and characters remastered from 2001’s Super Monkey Ball, 2002’s Super Monkey Ball 2, and 2005’s Super Monkey Ball Deluxe, packed together in one single title and spruced up with modern-day visuals, fresh mechanics, and additional content — a pretty sweet package for anyone who finds this popular franchise particularly a-peeling.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania launches October 5 on PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Switch.
