Hello Kitty Joins The Monkey Ball Gang

A Kitty’s Gotta Eat

Hello Kitty

Sega have been busy announcing new DLC characters for their upcoming title Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania. Everyone seems to be showing up for this party. Kiryu from Yakuza, Beat from Jet Set Radio, even Morgana from Persona 5. So far though most of these have been more directly connected to Sega. The latest addition though is a bit more surprising. Hello Kitty is joining the mania.

Hello Kitty

Unlike some of the gang announced so far, Hello Kitty won’t be free. Adding her to your game will cost $4.99. While she might seem like a strange fit, she actually goes way back with Sega. They released a Hello Kitty Dreamcast back during that system’s lifetime. From the looks of things, her gameplay will be adapted to her character, just like the other guest characters. She picks up apples instead of bananas.

Super Monkey Ball Banana mania launches on October 5th. It will be available on a wide variety of platforms. These include the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Looking forward to having this kitty join the party? Check out our previous coverage of the game. You can also view a trailer for her below.

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.
