Congrats, Super Monkey Ball fans, Banana Rumble, a brand new game in the classic series, is on the way!

It's been about a decade since we've seen a new Super Monkey Ball game, and that last entry was a now delisted mobile game. Today, however, Sega announced Super Monkey Ball Banana Rumble, a new entry in the series that offers 200 new stages across plenty of new worlds. There's a brand new spin dash technique which lets you shoot yourself a short distance across a stage, which I'm sure will offer different for the experts out there. Plus, there's local co-op with up to four players, and online you can play with up to 16 players in a competitive multiplayer mode. On top of all that, you can customise your monkeys with over 300 costume items.

It's been a few years since the last entry in the Monkey Ball series, with 2021's Super Monkey Ball Mania. That particular title was essentially a remake of Super Monkey Ball Deluxe, itself a game that packed the first two Super Monkey Ball games. This latest game will definitely be a welcome return to form for the arcade series, as there was a long period of time where there were no new games at all.

Sega is generally breathing new life into a number of its classic titles, bringing back games like Jet Set Radio, Streets of Rage, and Crazy Taxi, the last of which will apparently be a triple-A game, despite its arcadey nature.
