SEGA of America, Inc. today announced the release of "Super Monkey Ball 2," exclusively for the Nintendo GameCube. Marking the return of one of SEGA's most popular new franchises, "Super Monkey Ball 2" features 150 new levels, an all-new story mode, 12 addictive Party Games and endless multiplayer fun for up to four players.

"Super Monkey Ball 2" challenges gamers to maneuver a cute monkey inside a transparent ball through a series of 150 increasingly complex mazes spanning more than 10 lush environments. In the game's all-new Story Mode, the evil scientist Dr. Bad-Boon has stolen all the bananas from Jungle Island, and it's up to everyone's favorite simians AiAi, GonGon, MeeMee and Baby to save the day. Players can collect bananas while racing through outrageous terrains in an effort to reach the goal without falling off the edge.

The game also includes 12 full-featured Party Games, delivering multiplayer fun for up to four players, for nearly endless replayability. "Super Monkey Ball 2" features six all-new Party Games (Monkey Boat Race, Monkey Shot, Monkey Baseball, Monkey Dog Fight, Monkey Soccer and Monkey Tennis) and six revamped classics from the original title (Monkey Race, Monkey Fight, Monkey Target, Monkey Billiards, Monkey Bowling and Monkey Golf).

"If you're only going to own one multiplayer game for the Nintendo GameCube, `Super Monkey Ball 2' should be it," said Mike Fischer, vice president, entertainment marketing, SEGA of America, Inc.

"Fans of the original `Super Monkey Ball' will love the challenging new mazes and awesome new Party Games, and players new to the franchise will be thrilled with the game's addictive gameplay and trademark humor."
