Sega announces Super Monkey Ball series in the third dimension

LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (29th September, 2010) – SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced that the legendary Super Monkey Ball series  has evolved and is coming exclusively to the Nintendo 3DS in 2011. Developed by SEGA Studio Japan, Super Monkey Ball™ for Nintendo 3DS™* offers a whole new level of interactivity and fun, whilst completely immersing you in the world of your favourite monkeys – AiAi, MeeMee, GonGon and Baby – as they truly come alive in front of your eyes.

“The moment I saw the features of the Nintendo 3DS, I could not help thinking how perfectly Super Monkey Ball would work on this new hardware.  I could quickly picture myself holding the Nintendo 3DS using the motion sensor and playing Super Monkey Ball” commented Toshiro Nagoshi, creator and developer of the Super Monkey Ball franchise.  “The simple gameplay allows players to enjoy the 3D graphics to the fullest and now that we have brought this vision to life…bingo!  We have our all-time favourite Super Monkey Ball experience with the new excitement of the Nintendo 3DS!”

Taking advantage of the power of the Nintendo 3DS, players can let themselves loose in each new vibrant world as they twist and turn whilst aiming to collect every banana in the fastest time possible. This latest installment contains three brand-new compelling gameplay choices including single-player puzzle levels, Monkey Race and Monkey Fight. These new game modes give players the chance to compete via wireless connection with up to four players in the best 3D social experience possible in the palm of their hands.  In addition, Super Monkey Ball fans will be able to choose between the Nintendo 3DS motion sensor or the Slide Pad to navigate the puzzle mazes with complete precision.

Super Monkey Ball for Nintendo 3DS is set to release in 2011. For more information please visit www.sega.com/supermonkeyball3d
