Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD launches on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 29th. Physical pre-orders are now available at all major retailers; all physical editions come with sticker sheets featuring AiAi and friends!
This HD remake revitalises this classic title with updated graphics (480p > 1080p at 60fps) and optimised controls for each platform. Motion controls from the original Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz have been removed in favour of tightened analog controls, making it a breeze to jump in and start rolling through the game’s 100 levels.

I was never good at this game when it was released back in the early ’00s. The control system was maddening but it still had that impressive charm.
