Super Monkey Ball Set for Vita Release
SEGA today announced that the latest title in the popular Super Monkey Ball series is coming exclusively to the PlayStation Vita. The Monkey ball action is set to arrive in early 2012 and will use some of the Vita’s unique functionality, the most unique of which has to be the back-touch controls.
Everybody’s favourite monkeys AiAi, MeeMee, Baby and GonGon are back for more banana collecting fun in Super Monkey Ball* for PlayStation Vita. Exclusively designed for the PlayStation Vita’s unique functions, the game continues the motion-based experience of the previous adventure whilst making full use of the dual analog sticks and front/back-touch controls.
The puzzling primates return with all-new worlds, original mini-games and updated graphics, adding a fresh new vibrancy to Super Monkey Ball on PlayStation Vita. Players can manage each monkey’s momentum to navigate narrow ledges, moving platforms and loads of challenging obstacles. Roll your chosen ape to the goal by taking full advantage of the capabilities offered by the innovative new Vita handheld console, and challenge up to four friends in Wi-Fi enabled multiplayer modes. Fans can also enjoy revamped classic games such as the much-loved Monkey Target, along with other exciting brand new additions.
