In recent years, Sega and Atlus have fully embraced the remaster market. In the last few years alone, the company has brought forward enhanced or remade versions of entries in the Yakuza, Sonic the Hedgehog, Shin Megami Tensei, and the Super Monkey Ball franchise. Unfortunately, the first Super Monkey Ball remaster came in the form of 2019's Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD, a re-release of one of the less popular entries in the series. Sega must have heard the complaints of the fan base because, with Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz, the publisher compiles the beloved first three games into one modernized experience.
Join Alex Stadnik, John Carson, and me as we dive into some early-game stages of Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania. While we exclusively play through the story mode in this video, the package also includes several other destination modes, including a collection of the series' popular party games. Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania also includes unlockable characters from Sega's library of games. Stick around until the end of the video to see us bust out Sonic as we attack one of the earlier Super Monkey Ball stages.
