After being rated in Australia and Brazil, box art and screenshots for the new Monkey Ball game have now appeared online.
As previously revealed by this classification board, the game is known as Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania and is likely to be coming to all platforms including Nintendo Switch.

The new game’s existence began last June when Monkey Ball announcer Brian Matt teased a new project. This is followed by Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi mentioned how he wanted to do more with the Monkey Ball series.
