Monkey Ball Banana Mania is a modern HD remaster of the original three Super Monkey Ball games (Super Monkey Ball, Super Monkey Ball 2, Super Monkey Ball Deluxe).

Go bananas with the definitive remaster of the iconic original Super Monkey Ball games, celebrate 20 years of AiAi and your favorite monkey gang as you roll and maneuver through dazzling worlds when the ultimate Super Monkey Ball adventure launches.

Over 300 lovingly recreated levels and mazes, 12 fun minigames, and a delightful cast of characters make their return to the wondrous worlds of Super Monkey Ball in this faithful remaster – perfectly timed to celebrate 20 years of monkey magic.

Roll, tilt, and bounce through imaginative worlds as AiAi and his all-star cast of monkey friends race to thwart the nefarious schemes of evil monkey mad scientist Dr. Bad-Boon! No banana is safe in this epic new Monkey Ball adventure, featuring modern graphics and features, immersive comic book-style storytelling, 4-player local coop, online challenges and leaderboards, and a barrel’s worth of new playable characters that rekindle the magic of the iconic originals. 

SEGA announces a new character for Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania - none other than the main character from SEGA's Yakuza franchise: the infamous Kiryu Kazuma.

Kazuma Kiryu is jumping from the streets of Kamurocho into the world of Super Monkey Ball!

The legendary "Dragon of Dojima" meets the "Monkey from the jungle island," where he'll be collecting bottles of Staminan X rather than bananas! This SEGA collaboration is tough and introduces the dreaded Yakuza leader into the world of Super Monkey Ball. He appears in a classic style, with his light gray suit, maroon shirt and characteristic furrowed forehead.

The colorful cast of Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania also includes other iconic guest characters such as Sonic & Tails, Beat from Jet Set Radio and many more.

More announcements will follow soon!

In addition to the standard edition of the game, SEGA will also release a Digital Deluxe edition of Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania featuring six additional classic character skins, three legendary console skins, 10 customizable Items and classic soundtrack. There will also be a special 20th Anniversary Edition of the game available at retail outlets that includes an art book, reversible cover, collectable sleeve and 10 cosmetic Items.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, rated E 10+, will release on October 5, 2021 for Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam) for $39.99 (console) and $29.99 (PC). The Digital Deluxe edition will retail for $49.99.
