A new character is coming to Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, according to the Gamescom: Opening Night Live presentation on Wednesday. Morgana, Joker’s companion in Atlus’ Persona 5 will join the roster of characters.
In the Super Monkey Ball series, players guide a monkey in a hamster ball through sports-inspired minigames or zany obstacle courses. The first two games launched in the early 2000s exclusively to the GameCube. The franchise has since launched games on numerous platforms, from consoles to mobile versions, with more than a dozen titles.
Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania is a high-definition remake of the original three Super Monkey Ball games. It’s scheduled to launch on Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on Oct. 5. The console versions will cost $39.99, while the PC version costs $29.99.
Sega also announced a Digital Deluxe version of Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania. It will feature six additional classic character skins, three legendary console skins, 10 customizable items, and the classic soundtrack. The Digital Deluxe edition will retail for $49.99.
