If you remember the early days of the Sega Dreamcast, you remember Super Monkey Ball .
And the latest iteration in the critically acclaimed and addictive franchise is headed to the PlayStation Vita.
Sega has announced Super Monkey Ball for Sony's new portable; all your favorite characters, including AiAi, MeeMee and Baby, are out to grab more bananas. The game is designed for the Vita's special features, as it takes full advantage of the dual analog sticks and front/back-touch controls.
We'll get the benefit of all-new worlds, original mini-games and updated visuals, and players will control the monkey's momentum and guide them along narrow ledges, across moving platforms, and through tons of challenging obstacles. Oh, it'll be a cutesy blast.
Said Gary Knight, Sega Europe and Sega of America Senior Vice President of Marketing:
"Since evolving onto the current generation of consoles, the Super Monkey Ball franchise has always offered innovative game design, challenging the hardware capabilities for all the consoles it has released on. Super Monkey Ball on PlayStation Vita is a great opportunity to experience the exciting features that the PlayStation Vita offers, and the SEGA development team are bringing a exciting new experience whilst staying true to the franchise."
Super Monkey Ball has always been fun, even if you only count it as a pleasant diversion. 😉 It'll arrive some time in early 2012.
