We are very happy to reveal to you today that Sonic and Tails will be entering Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania as playable characters when the game launches on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S on October 5th!
This special Sega collaboration marks the 20e and 30e birthdays of Super monkey ball and Sonic the hedgehog (the two actually share the same birthday on June 23!). The Blue Blur and his two-tailed sidekick enter the world of Super Monkey Ball in time to join AiAi and the Monkey Gang on their final adventure, with both characters free and unlockable via normal gameplay at launch.
Sonic fans will enjoy playing the classic versions of their favorite characters, who celebrate their historical legacy over the years. Little touches like replacing AiAi’s favorite bananas with Sonic’s rings, or Sonic’s Spin Attack when he picks up the pace add to the authenticity. Both can be unlocked for free from Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania point shop by accumulating in-game points (the time required will vary, but most players will be able to do so within 30 minutes of the game).
Sonic and Tails join a star cast Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania which includes Beat from Radio Jet Set and additional guest stars to discover. Each special guest will be fully playable through the 300+ stages of Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania when the game launches for Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S on October 5th. Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania will also support smart delivery, ensuring fans will only have to purchase the game once to play it on their favorite Xbox console.
