If you've been craving some more Super Monkey Ball action, you just might be in luck. A video game titled "Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania" has just been rated in Brazil. The classification covers all platforms including the Nintendo Switch.
This actually follows on from a Monkey Ball rating in Australia for the same title. Combined, this information seemingly confirms a new game is on the way.
Admittedly, this isn't the first time we've heard about the possibility of a new Monkey Ball game. Last June, Monkey Ball announcer Brian Matt told fans to tune into a Sega YouTube livestream featuring Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi.
During the show, Nagoshi suggested something was in the works, and also noted how he would try to do more with Monkey Ball in the future.
Would you like to see a new Monkey Ball game? Think we'll be hearing anything over the next week? Comment down below.
Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Collection DX 2
Basically confirms it then. I’ll only want it if it’s Monkey Ball’s Sonic Mania moment by using classic mechanics or is a remake/remaster of Super Monkey Ball Deluxe (which is a collection of stages, minigames and the story mode of of 1 & 2) cause it’s my childhood.
hope this is for real. hope it like sonic mania plus. would be a great game if it would.
Loved the first two as a kid, but haven’t played any since. A new one would be cool to see!
It must be real, it’s been rated on 2 ratings boards
I'm on the same boat as everyone else. I'm only interested if this is a return to form. Hopefully a collection of stages from the first two games with the original mechanics, the original art-style, and at the very least Monkey Target from the second game.
The only Monkey Ball game I've enjoyed after the first two was Banana Splitz on the VITA. While the controls felt stiff in that game, the level design was at least solid and challenging.
Please, PLEASE be nothing like Banana Blitz. I hope this game is just like the first two Super Monkey Balls.
They actually already made a collection of stages & mini games from 1 & 2 with Super Monkey Ball Deluxe. It’s literally my childhood, if they bring back all the stages, mini games, mechanics, modes & story from Super Monkey Ball Deluxe (so 1 & 2) then I’m 100% in & hyped!
The last one was horrible, not holding my breath for this.
@Pandy good. I hope it is like the first two monkey ball games. blitz was ok but I hope this one will be a winner.
As long ss Monkey target is done well I am in
@Dingelhopper right! It sounds like a Banana Blitz sequel… sort of… 😭
I'd be happy if it was just Monkey Target from the first game.
As long as they try to tune into what made the first two games so great, then I'm all about this. Oh and of course that Monkey Target is a bonus game.
I've already bought Paperball Deluxe. It may not be Sonic Mania moment for Super Monkey Ball, but it's definitely, let's say, Freedom Planet moment.
It's all but confirmed.
so I booked a flight to Japan
@milvus976578 Oh, how is it? Does it add it's own take or is it just a souless clone?
@GrailUK well, it plays like the first Super Monkey Ball and looks like it belongs on the GameCube; also it has cardboard aesthetics which I like very much. No monkeys in the ball though.
