Monkey Ball Voice Actor Hints at a New Title Announcement This Month
If a new Super Monkey Ball game is announced, it'll likely be during Tokyo Game Show at the end of this month
Super Monkey Ball voice actor Matt Brian, the voice of the game’s announcer, has been hinting towards something big for the series on his Instagram page.
Most recently, the voice actor wrote that “September will be amazing for what’s to come” in one post, where he was playing Super Monkey Ball on a friend’s Switch. Another older post regarding the closure of Sega’s Akihabara arcade also hinted at some possible news this month. Brian wrote: “Akihabara arcade closing which means that the flow goes to Super Monkey Ball X. This month the ground will shake. Stay tuned!”

Playing a friend’s Switch. SuperMonkeyBall of course! I need to stop shouting out “Ready, Go!” You all understand. September will be amazing for what’s to come. #sega @segaofficial @super_monkeyball @babylonian #supermonkeyball @segaofficial @nintendolife @nintendoswitchcanada
The Super Monkey Ball series has been relatively inactive recently. Save for last year’s HD release of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz on PC, it’s been a long time since a Super Monkey Ball game came out. The last original title in the franchise, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz, was a PS Vita exclusive that launched all the way back in 2012. It’s pretty safe to say that Sega hasn’t been paying much attention to this now cult-classic franchise.
Of course, it’s impossible to actually say whether the tilt-control puzzles of Super Monkey Ball will be making a return any time soon. It’s hard to say what Brian has been referring to in his Instagram posts, although signs do point to another entry in the series. If an announcement does happen this month, it’ll likely be at Tokyo Game Show, running from September 23 to September 27.
