Super dupa!

Super Monkey Ball was arguably one of the GameCube's most appealing early releases, offering a gripping concept, appealing lead character and hours of challenge. While the Monkey Ball series has since moved onto other platforms, it will forever be associated with Nintendo's boxy home console - even if it didn't technically start life on that particular system.

Our good friend Daniel "Slopes" Ibbertson has put together this 20 minute epic which attempts to cover all of Monkey Ball's history, from its original 2001 arcade release to recent portable entries on 3DS, PS Vita and mobile phones.

As always, it's highly informative and well worth a watch, so grab yourself a hot drink and enjoy.
