It’s been 5 years since we’ve had any entries into the Super Monkey Ball series, and 7 since we’ve had any on a console. Fans of the series won’t have to wait much longer to catch up with Aiai and the gang, though. SEGA has officially announced an HD remake of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz!
Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz was originally released for the Nintendo Wii in 2006. It introduced a new villain, Captain Crabuchin, and had a total of 8 boss battles.
So far, we know that Banana Blitz HD will have 100 main levels and 10 multiplayer minigames. New graphics are, obviously, included and controls will be optimized for each platform. Also, for the first time ever in the series, there will be online leaderboards.
The best news is that Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD will be released on all current major consoles. That means you’ll be able to play on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam! Although pages aren’t yet up for all the consoles, you can already pre-order on Amazon.
