If, like us, you're itching to get your hands on some Super Monkey Ball action for 3DS, the game's official website might ramp up that excitement just a little bit.

Whilst we already knew the title would include the popular Monkey Race and Monkey Fight modes, the first screenshots show off the monkeys in cars and wielding hammers, a distinct departure from the modes' roots. There's also some seasonal wallpapers, including a pair of Thanksgiving-related pictures for those of you recovering from the festivities.

If you want to check out the excitement for yourself, you can visit the official Super Monkey Ball 3DS website for all your spherical simian needs.

Super Monkey Ball for 3DS is due for release in Spring 2011, and we'll keep you up to speed with its development.
