To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Super Monkey Ball Ball Banana is a new collection arriving later this year, which bundles Super Monkey Ball, Super Monkey Ball 2, and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe into one cohesive package. It's launching for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on October 5.
If you've never been introduced to the world of Super Monkey Ball, it essentially puts you in control of a monkey in a ball (sort of) called AiAi. Instead of controlling them directly, you'll tilt the world to collect bananas and complete a variety of increasingly complex courses.
The upcoming collection will include a HD makeover for all three original Super Monkey Ball games, which includes over 300 levels and 12 mini-games to play. It will also support four-player local co-op, online leaderboards, and online challenges to compete in.
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, four-player local coop, online challenges and leaderboards, and a barrel’s worth of new playable characters that rekindle the magic of the iconic originals.
If you haven't played the series, it's a ton of fun. There's actually another entry already available on Xbox - Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. So if you want to see what the fuss is about, you can pick it up relatively cheap these days and dive in!
