Video: Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania Clip shows the action of switching the gyro control


Last month’s Nintendo Direct brought us many exciting new games, including Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania.The game was launched in October this year and contains more than 300 levels from GameCube’s Super Monkey Ball and Super Monkey Ball 2, and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe Edition, A PS2/Xbox title has been used as a compilation of the first two entries.

The game will include a story mode, 12 mini-games, online leaderboards, etc., but it will also add gyro control functions, which may change the overall feel of these classic monkey ball games for those who wish to use them.

Super Monkey Ball producer Masao Shirosaki shared a quick clip of Gyro Control for the Switch version, and it looks really smooth. Switch, PS4, PS5 and Steam will support these gyroscope controls:

Of course, if you are willing to play that way, traditional joystick control is also supported, so I hope this game can have the best of both worlds. Gyro control has been a very controversial issue in the series in the past-remember the original Banana Blitz? -But I hope the situation will get better this time.

Are you considering buying Banana Mania when it launches in October this year? Will you try gyroscope control, or will you persist, uh… stick? Let us know in the comments.
