Solving the mystery of Super Monkey Ball's announcer

Ready? GO!

Did you know that the original announcer from Super Monkey Ball and its sequel isn't credited in the game? The silly voice that narrated much of the game's action is ingrained in the minds of many fans, which has lead to some wondering just who was behind it. Turns out getting the answer isn't that easy! Set aside some time to watch the above mini-doc about trying to hunt down the man who recorded those lines. I watched the whole thing, and I promise it's worth your time!

Official Super Monkey Ball Japanese Twitter account shows off 'Super Monkey Cube' gameplay

It's hip to be square

The official Super Monkey Ball Japanese Twitter account shared the above video, which is pretty cut-and-dry. We're looking at Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD, but instead of the usual ball we're all used to, Aiai is trapped inside of a cube. What in the world is going on here? Is SEGA teasing some new content down the road? Is this an unlockable in the game that we're unaware of?

Thanks to OperationGamer17 for the heads up!

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD's success could pave the way for remakes of the first two games, or a new installment

Just give me the original Monkey Target, damnit!

It's nice to see the Monkey Ball series getting some love from SEGA, even if it is a remake. SEGA has already shared why they decided to tackle a remake of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, but many fans have been wondering if more could be in the works. In an interview with Crunchroll, SEGA's Masao Shirosaki says there could indeed be some more Monkey Ball action on the way, but it all depends on the sales of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD.

...I am aware that the most favored titles are the first two games. If there is enough support for Banana Blitz HD, this will open up doors for remaking the first two games or even a whole new title to the series. But for now, I’d be happy if everyone has fun playing Banana Blitz HD.

Thanks to OperationGamer17 for the heads up!

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD director praises Astral Chain, says the game inspires him to improve his own work

No monkeying around

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD is now available, and SEGA's team are making the internet rounds with various interviews about the title. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, game director and producer Masao Shirosaki covers all sorts of details on the game, but it's a snippet at the end of the interview that's particularly noteworthy. When asked about games that have impressed him this year, Shirosaki was quick to mention a Switch exclusive.

Another game would be Astral Chain. I played it because the director, Takahisa Taura, happens to be a former schoolmate of mine, but it was a well-made, fun, solid action game. His work inspires me to continue to improve my own.
