It was way back in 2006 when Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz wowed the Nintendo Wii crowd, seeing kids, parents, grandparents and great-grandparents the world over clamour for the monkey madness. Now though it’s back and today SEGA have confirmed the full release date for Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD for Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Oh, and there’s a nifty little trailer to take in too!
Ready for the chance to go hands-on with SEGA’s precarious platformer? Well, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD will be found launching on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch come October 29th 2019, with a Steam release then also planned for later in the Winter.
This will see Monkey Ball returning to hit up a whole new crowd of gamers, with updated visuals, online leaderboards, optimised control schemes and a brand new mini-game all included. In fact, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD threatens to bring all the fun and chaos of the Monkey Ball series to modern consoles, with the brand-new mini-game Decathalon mode seeing you attempting to complete a set of 10 mini-games in a row.
- Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz is Back in HD: Originally released on the Wii in 2006, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD reinvigorates the original game with 100 single-player stages, 10 multi-player mini-games, revamped control schemes, updated graphics, and more.
- Online Leaderboards: A first for the series, players can now compete with others around the world through online leaderboards for single-player Time Attack and the all-new Mini-Game Decathalon Score Attack modes.
- No Monkey Business – Play Your Way: Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam. With uniquely optimized control schemes for each platform, everyone from first-time rollers to world-record holders can jump right in to the fun.
We’ll be sure to let you know the minute that Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD arrives on the Xbox Store, but with physical pre-orders already open, monkey fans may well be right up for getting the cash in earlier. It’s certainly a game that will be perfect for new fans of any age, as well as the most seasoned Monkey Ball series veterans, and it’s great to see SEGA going bananas with multiple format releases.
