Sega’s new Super Monkey Ball game for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One isn’t really an all-new game, but a remake of a previous title, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz. Sega announced the new title, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD, in a press release on Tuesday. It will come to consoles on Oct. 29, with a Steam release planned for “winter 2019.”
The original Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz was developed exclusively for Wii and used the Wii Remote’s motion controls. The game featured 100 levels, eight boss battles (a series first), 50 minigames, and a party tournament mode where players could compete in a variety of minigames. Banana Blitz received mixed-to-positive reviews at the time.
The HD remake will offer “updated graphics, optimized control schemes for each platform, a brand-new mini-game Decathalon mode where you complete a set of 10 mini-games in a row, and online leaderboards,” Sega said in a release.
Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD will cost $39.99 on console. PC pricing was not announced.
