ORIGINAL POST: After its existence being leaked over the past couple of days via the Taiwanese Ratings Board, screenshots have emerged for a new Super Monkey Ball game that’s coming to PS4, PC and the Nintendo Switch. Check out the tweet below.
The screenshots, which come courtesy of the Japanese website Famitsu, shows series regular AiAi, along with sidekick Baby, tackling levels across a variety of landscapes. It’s been suggested that this new game is actually a remake of the previously Nintendo Wii exclusive title Banana Blitz. The pirate landscape in particular is one that appears in Banana Blitz, so it looks like that’s genuine.
It looks like this might be a remake of the 2006 Wii title, Banana Blitz?
