Super Monkey Ball 3DS – Monkey Race Footage

Sega news has all been a little too sweet recently, something had to give and it just did. I present to you Super Monkey Ball 3DS – Monkey Race Mode footage.

Here I was hoping that a return to the original Super Monkey Ball team would yield some good results for this series but alas, this looks pretty damn awful.

‘Monkey Race’ in Super Monkey Ball: Deluxe was actually a very fun distraction from the main game. Not only that, but it made sense! You would race your monkey inside his monkey ball and use momentum to propel yourself down hills and around tight corners.

This here is just a poor mans’ Mario Kart or Sega All-Star Racing even. The track looks dull, the items look stupid, the graphics are nothing to write home about, and it just doesn’t look fun at all. It doesn’t even have monkey target, I’ll be giving this one a miss.

    It looks like if you get hit with 1 banana, you lose the race automatically. Items seem way too crippling.

    This is also one of the ugliest 3DS games yet, though I called that from the original screenshots. Tsk tsk, Sega.

  2. Wow, Disney Magical Racing Tour on the Dreamcast looks better than that.

  3. Best game this generation!

  4. I especially like when the 3D glasses go over your face to make the game even less fun.

    Emmet the DS doesn't require 3D Glasses?

    Why you guys disappointed, Monkey Balls been disappointing for a while, this whole original team thing isn't entirely true as the original team never really stopped working on the game, maybe their involvement was a little less but they were still around.

    @Cube, he is talking about in the actual gameplay video, at one point someone uses and item and crappy old 3D glasses fall over your screen.

    It's basically the Mario Kart Squid… Whihc is a fucking TERRIBLE weapons. At least there is no blue shell…

    Yeah I haven't seen the video, all I see is a monkey in a ball riding a vehicle :S.

  8. Cube, people hate when you talk to them like they are an idiot.

    I suppose next you are going to tell me it doesn't come with free monkeys either.
