E3 2021: Roll Around Like A Crazy Monkey In Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania

More Fun Than A Barrel Of Monkeys

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania

For years Sega have been trying to recapture the magic of the original Super Monkey Ball titles. Now it seems they’ve decided that if they can’t beat those games, they can just give them to us again. Today at Nintendo’s E3 Direct they revealed Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania.

A remaster of the first two titles in the series, Banana Mania will give you all the goodness of Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball 2. That means if you have fond memories of playing those original titles on the Gamecube, you’ll be able to enjoy all the monkey fighting, targeting, and flying. Don’t forget the rolling either as the main mode is still here as well.

Over 300 levels and 12 minigames will be available, though sadly the minigames won’t have online play. That feels like a no brainer so its strange to not see it included. Still, I don’t mind monkeying around with these old titles.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania will release for Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on October 5th. Check out the first trailer below.

He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
