Super Monkey Ball 2 rolling to Xbox Live on Windows Phone next week

Super Monkey Ball 2 Monkey Target

The new Monkey Target minigame

Back when we discovered Final Fantasy would be coming to Windows Phone, we also learned about another upcoming Live title: Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition from SEGA.  Well, Final Fantasy just launched two weeks ago to much acclaim, and now we’re due for some monkey business. Super Monkey Ball 2 arrives on June 27.

As you can see from our exclusive screenshots, Super Monkey Ball 2’s graphics are now fully 3D (the original used 2D sprites for the monkeys). It’s also said to have better controls and stage design. Let’s hope so, because the first game was far too frustrating. 125 stages, six themed worlds, and some tough Achievements will ensure a lengthy experience. One of those Achievements is tied to the game’s new 4-player mode. Hopefully said mode uses the internet rather than local Wi-Fi, but Microsoft wasn’t able to say either way at press time.

Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition rolls out on Wednesday, June 27 and will cost $2.99… We’re cautiously excited for it.

Update: Multiplayer will be pass-and-play only. Bummer. Good for Achievement hunters though!

This has been on iOS. -_-

Paul Acevedo says:

That's true of most mobile Live games. We discuss the previous versions in the first SMB2 article (linked in the first paragraph).

MastrMeatWad says:

and this is bad?

No it isn't. I'm just saying. It has been on iOS for like 2 years.

WinEXMan says:

Did the iOs version have achievements..... that what I thought

ZX9 says:

This has potential. I love Monkey Ball, but couldn't bring myself to buy the first one.

jedijaxpavan says:

The first one sucked. I can't force myself to finish it :'(

tylerh1701 says:

Glad it's at least launching at $3 and not $5 like the first one, but I don't think I'll grab it at $3.  Maybe it will go on sale some day.

erazor84 says:

Only one Minigame? The iPod / iOS Version has 3 Minigames .... Bowling, Target and Golf. So i won't buy it again on windows phone :(

Paul Acevedo says:

Nobody said it doesn't have all the minigames.

erazor84 says:

hope you're right.

sdreamer says:

Sonic 4 Episode 2 please :) looks good I might actually get this super monkey ball, never been a fan but something about this one grabs me.

Justin5267 says:

Loved the first Super Monkey Ball, can't wait for this one! Will definitely be a day one buy! :D

I am getting too used to the 99c games to fork out 3euro for a game now.
With the exception of Carcassonne, which I bet will be expensive, but I am dying for that game to come out.
When is it out? It was announced ages ago.

Banstyle says:

DIdn't SMB1 launch at $6.99? Funny how things change! lol.

aeronaught says:

"rolling to Xbox live" "rolls out"...make the bad puns stop!

Seriously speaking, I wonder what the demo version will include. My niece loves these games but I'm gonna have to wait for this to become DOTW.

Paul Acevedo says:

Updated the article with multiplayer details, you guys.
