Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll: Event Recap

Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll: Event Recap

Saturday February 13, 2010, Nintendo World played party host the new Wii title published by Sega, Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll. The new title is the next installment in the popular Super Monkey Ball series and takes full advantage of the Wii Balance Board. The game did release a few days earlier than the event, so I wouldn’t call it a launch party, but that didn’t take anything away from it. The event had the game available to play, an appearance by AiAi (Super Monkey Ball character), tournaments, Chiquita bananas, and even the Chiquita banana lady showed up.monkeyball7 The fun began at noon with hourly tournaments with 12 competitors competing for the top scorers. I decided to participate in the game I never played before, and I must say… I’m pretty bad. Check out my score…

The top three winners received a nice Sega bag full of cool stuff. A banana holder (don’t ask), two T-shirts, a Nintendo Power, and a random assortment of goodies passed out to everyone throughout the day.

I may not have won, but who cares. I had fun… got to have myself a banana, got some of the goodies (stickers, pins, keychains, pencils), and got pictures with my hero AiAi and the Chiquita lady. Check out the rest of the pictures below.
