Super Monkey Ball 3DS Trailer

The first trailer for Super Monkey Ball 3DS has arrived.

There isn’t a whole lot to say about the trailer, you can’t tell how well the 3D works on a PC monitor so I can’t really comment on that. I do, however like the tropical sounding music going on!

I’m more interested in this Monkey Ball then other recent ones however, as this one’s being developed by the original team in Japan. One thing I will mention is that I hope those red rails that stop you falling out of the level do not stick around past the first few stages. I want at least SOME challenge!

Finally I really, really hope that the mini games are fun and fleshed out again. I don’t know about anyone else but the mini games in Super Monkey Ball 1, 2 and Deluxe are what kept me and my friends coming back time and time again. In more recent monkey in ball related outings the mini games have been quantity before quality, often serving as more of a tech demo for what ever control gimmick they have been designed around and not fun mini games.

Let’s hope we can trust the original team to get the (monkey) ball rolling again… Yeah, I went there!

    Still same ol casual bullshit. I can't stand how they changed the hardcore levels from smb 1,2 and to an extent banana blitz to the bullshit stages we get now.

    This game seems to suffer from the same step and roll was suffering from. Stages are designed with no challenge. They literally force you to the finish with borders preventing you to fall down, and at least in step and roll, it stayed like that till the 4th world.

    Whereas in smb 1 and 2 it was allready challenging in the first world.


    Why SEGA, why are you so good at messing with your franchises -_-

  2. Looks a LOT like Super Monkey Ball 2 on the iPhone. Makes me hope for a 2D port, would look great on the iPad.

    Yeah, this seems like another casual outing on the series. I am not sure why they feel it has to be so piss easy now. I realize the original two games were too hard (might be some of the hardest games I ever played actually), but that was kind of the point.

    Hard… there's nothing wrong with hard. They sold well anyway. You'd think if people hated hard, than why did step and roll sell worse than all it's predecessors.

    They're just idiots. My little cousin could handle smb 1 and 2 better than me. This whole casual thing is especially aimed to the nintendo wii sports croud.

    I actually really loved the smb series. Great times.

    Woah this looks so very meh. Not terrible, but theres nothing even remotely impressive about it (so far).

    I love 'Super Monkey Ball' for Gamecube, that said, I'll probably give this one a shot.But I have to say it looks uglier than the GC version.
