Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania is an upcoming game set to release on October 5th, 2021. Since it has been about 20 years since the first Super Monkey Ball game came out, Sega decided to redesign the game to celebrate its 20th Anniversary. They’ll include more than 300 levels and more than 12 minigames.
Super Monkey Ball first started out as an arcade game. The arcade game was called “Monkey Ball” and released on June 23rd, 2001. In November 2001, Sega released a Super Monkey Ball game for Nintendo GameCube and continued to make plenty of Super Monkey Ball games for GameBoy Advance, Playstation, Nintendo DS, Wii, and others.
Sega made a few adjustments to make the game more enjoyable for Super Monkey Ball fans. They included online play, unlockable characters, new levels and minigames. The game might even have extra levels for you to play on. Fans can also discover secret levels when playing the game because Sega has a history of adding them. Fans can play Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania on certain consoles for $40. However, it may cost more or less for other consoles or handhelds devices.
Look forward to the Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania later this year!
