We have some members of Team NL that can barely contain their excitement for Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, especially as it continues to add fun unlockable characters like Sonic and Tails. It just got pretty serious, though, as SEGA has confirmed that Kazuma Kiryu, lead protagonist of the mainline Yakuza games, will also feature.

As with all of the other reveals he'll be free and unlockable through normal gameplay from day one, which is a nice touch.

Yakuza is a franchise that has mostly missed out on Nintendo hardware, so this is our gateway - not bad.

Will you be rolling with Kazuma Kiryu in Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania?
