New Super Monkey Ball game set to bounce onto iOS this summer



Super Monkey Ball was one of the real gems of the GameCube era, and now a version of it is set to bounce its way onto iOS this summer.

But this isn’t your grandpappy’s Super Monkey Ball. According to SEGA, the game takes inspiration from the classic arcade game, pachinko, and features AiAi and the rest of his monkey pals as they attempt to thwart the evil machinations of the dastardly Prof. Boscis.

It’s basically a clone of the super addictive Peggle, but it looks good fun (if slightly derivative) nonetheless as you “bounce, slide and rebound your way through jungles, volcanoes and glaciers”

While the rest of us will have to wait until later this summer to play it, the lucky folks in Canada (or those who somehow have access to a Canadian App Store account) can download it already, since this is the one place it’s already been soft-launched.

The trailer can be viewed below:
