Day an icon of its, it wowed fans using its elegant design, simple gameplay delightfully, and wacky fun.

Three Adventures in One
The premise of Super Monkey Ball is deceptively simple: you need to roll, tilt, and bounce your monkey ball by way of a group of devilishly crafted levels and mazes while collecting every banana on the way. The dynamic controls, dazzling level design, catchy music, progressive difficulty and bubbly cast of characters combine to generate an insanely addictive gameplay experience that still sticks out because of its originality nearly twenty years later.
As the original Super Monkey Ball introduced over 100 levels, Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania features over 300 handcrafted levels from all three games, recreated with new graphics and modern features lovingly. 4-player local co-op, online leaderboards, and comic book-style storytelling add additional immersion and depth for new players.
Monkey Ball fans shall also recall spending endless hours with classic party games like Monkey Target, Monkey Soccer, Monkey Baseball, and Monkey Bowling. Whether spinning the Wheel of Danger in Monkey Target or hitting monkey balls in Banana Stadium, nothing beat competing with friends in the classics. Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania marks the glorious return of most 12 minigames from SMB 1, 2 & Deluxe – every favorite refined for modern consoles – ensuring no banana gets left out in this definitive remaster.
