Skipjack Day is basically a monkey target for Monkey Ball, but it turns into a complete game

Ask Super Monkey Ball fans to talk about their favorite part of the series and you’ll hear the word “monkey target” pop out of your mouth before you finish the question. There’s a reason mini games are so popular-because they’re so good.

So, if you do, a game that takes the basic idea of ​​Monkey Target and transforms it into a complete experience with Monkey Ball’s iconic gameplay and a fresh take of the fascinating city pop soundtrack. Imagine. You imagined Bonito Days, which will be released on Switch on October 14th.

This game was created by Studio Somewhere’s indie team and developed by Cameron Shackleton (Helblade: Sacrifice of Senua, Disney Infinity) And with art from Adam Westerman. You can taste the action with the new launch trailer above.

Fly into the sky and glide flying fish on more than 20 sunlit stages, including the beaches of Temaxand and the sparkling ice caps of Narwhal Station. Play “Target Test” to land the fish on a distant goal. In “Sweet Rush,” players soar in the sky, collect sweets, discover hidden paths, and leave themselves to a selection of forgotten Japanese city pop classics.

Bonito Days can be played alone or in multiplayer with up to 4 players, promising “easy to pick up and play gameplay”. In a press release, Shackleton said, “I wanted to remind myself of the magic of that summer in the cold months of October. Bonito Days played Monkey Ball with his love for the smooth sound of Japanese pop music in the 80’s. It’s a combination of the happy times spent. The Super Monkey Ball from GameCube and the laid-back atmosphere of a lazy summer day. “

“I want players to play Bonito Days to relax, compete with friends, and extend the summer for a few more weeks!”

To be on the safe side, the game will be available on October 14th and will be priced at $ 9.99 / £ 7.99 / € 8,99. Would you like to try it?
