Sega has announced that the Super Monkey Ball series will be making its way onto the Nintendo 3DS. Developed by Sega Studio Japan, the title will feature characters such as AiAi, GonGon and Baby in full 3D, and will arrive sometime in 2011. Creator and developer of the Super Monkey Ball franchise, Toshiro Nagoshi enthusiastically had this to say:
“The moment I saw the features of the Nintendo 3DS, I could not help thinking how perfectly Super Monkey Ball would work on this new hardware. I could quickly picture myself holding the Nintendo 3DS using the motion sensor and playing Super Monkey Ball. The simple gameplay allows players to enjoy the 3D graphics to the fullest and now that we have brought this vision to life…bingo! We have our all-time favorite Super Monkey Ball experience with the new excitement of the Nintendo 3DS!”
This latest installment of the Super Monkey Ball series includes three gameplay choices including single-player puzzle levels, Monkey Race and Monkey Fight. The game can be played with up to four players via wireless connection, and players have the option to choose between Nintendo 3DS motion sensor or the Slide pad.
