Super Monkey Ball Rolls Onto The Playstation Vita

Sony Sega Puzzle PS Vita News

Time to roll that monkey on the go as Sega has annpunced a new Super Monkey Ball for the Playstation Vita. It has been designed esclusively with the Vita in mind, taking advantage of the motion controls, front touch screen and the rear touch pad, as well as for allowing traditional controls. Expect AiAi, MeeMee, Baby and GonGon to be present in the game.

The game will also feature all-new worlds, original mini-games and updated graphics, adding a fresh new vibrancy to Super Monkey Ball. 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 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.

“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” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA of America. “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.”

The game will see a release in 2012. Are you excited by a Super Monkey Ball on the Vita? Leave your comments below.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!

    My ‘next handheld console’ piggybank (imaginary at the moment) is slowly turning into my Vita piggybank…Sony are definitely beating Nintendo into the ground with their game selection!

    And I do love Super Monkey Ball, it’s been making me tear my hair out since the Gamecube days 😀 (although that minigame in Twilight Princess topped it, I think I actually threw controllers because of that thing)
