I’ve got my eyes on the potassium rich prize that is Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, but sadly that’s still a few months away. Thankfully in the meantime, Sega is looking back while I look forward and putting together a series of Super Monkey Ball retrospective videos. The first of these has been shared, with more on the way in the coming months.

Leading things off is Super Monkey Ball Deluxe!
 

 
When Banana Mania was announced, a lot of people may’ve been a little confused by Deluxe’s inclusion. After all, it was sold as a blend of the first Super Monkey Ball and its sequel. However, packed in with all those stages and party games were new courses exclusively found in Deluxe. It’s likely because of these that it gets to rub shoulders with 1 and 2, though it’s worth noting (as the video does) that Deluxe was also the series’ debut on PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

No matter which system you first rolled along with, you can enjoy the 20th anniversary fun (and fall outs) when Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania releases on October 5th.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
