    Sega has recently released a gameplay trailer for Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD, and the game looks absolutely adorable.

    In case you missed it, the last Super Monkey Ball title for console is being remade, and is titled Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. It will feature many improvements over the original, including new levels and some amped up graphics. You will once again have to help Aiai recover the scattered pieces of the Golden Banana Bunch. Time for some more mad dashing and banana snatching for all the Super Monkey Ball fans, the wait is finally over!

    The original title was released for the Nintendo Wii in 2006, and had a mostly warm reception. Some criticized the game for having somewhat difficult controls, given that the title was run with the Wii’s motion controls, and could be difficult to use when trying to play a game that can require some real precision at time. Luckily, the new title will have control sets optimized for each console. Not having to deal with motion controls will be a big plus here!

    The new trailer gives us a look at what exactly we are headed into with Banana Blitz HD. You can tell right away that the update to the graphics was a major focal point for this remake, which makes total sense since the title was only changed by the letters HD. Aside from the graphics, SMB: Banana Blitz HD will feature 100 main levels and 10 multiplayer mini-games.

    The new title will also feature online leaderboards, which is something totally new to the Super Monkey Ball Series. Banana Blitz HD will be releasing for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and later for PC. Be sure to keep a close eye out, as this game currently has a release set for 10-29-2019 and can be pre-order via Amazon already!

    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!

    The HD remaster has a release date of October 29, 2019. Needless to say, October just keeps looking better and better for the MyPotatoGames fam!

    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.
