Nothing more dangerous than a monkey behind the wheel

Balls won't be the only thing spinning when Super Monkey Ball 3D launches this week as we see in SEGA's new Monkey Race trailer, wheels will be spinning faster than you can say "bananas".

As well as the single-player puzzle levels, gamers can take part in two other play modes: Monkey Race, and Monkey Fight. Fans of the series will be familiar with both mini-games and in the case of the former, players will have to master their drifting skills and utilise those power-ups if they want to win the race. Up to four players can race each other via a wireless connection.
