Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania is an enhanced remaster of the Gamecube classics Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball 2 as well as Super Monkey Ball Deluxe on PS2 and Xbox. It is being developed by Yakuza studio Ryu Ga Gotoku for Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

It is clear Sega have been looking at all their licenses when deciding which characters should be getting into the ball. This game is shaping up to be Sega All Stars: Monkey Ball Edition and I for one cannot wait. Who do you think will be getting into the ball next?
