Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD screenshot of the new Decathlon game mode

A little while ago it was leaked through Taiwan's Game Rating Board that there is a new Super Monkey Ball game in development for both PC and consoles. While I fully expected this would be a brand new game to once again kickstart the series, it seems that the mysterious new game will actually be an HD remaster of the Wii-exclusive Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz.

Besides improved visuals and better controls, the creatively named Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD will bring with it a brand new mini-game - Decathlon. As you might imagine from the name alone, Decathlon will task you with completing a set of ten mini-games in a row, all in order to show off your skills on the new online leaderboards.

Chasing leaderboard positions isn't exactly my cup of tea, but I certainly won't complain about getting a Super Monkey Ball game on PC! Speaking of which, you can expect Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD to arrive for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 29th, while the PC version will be coming at some point in winter.

You can learn more about Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD, as well as follow its development moving forward, over at the official website. And as a final note, I'll leave you with the brief gameplay trailer. Enjoy!
