SUPER MONKEY BALL: BANANA BLITZ HD Director Says That More Remasters Are Not Off The Table

We have some news that will make Monkey Ball fans very happy, as the Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD Director reveals that more remasters are being considered.

Back in October, Sega released Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD — which is a remastered version of the original Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz game that released all the way back in 2006 as a launch title for the Nintendo Wii.

Much like it is to be expected from a remaster, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD features some crisp new graphics, but keeps the essence of the original game pretty much intact; giving players the same experience they remember from the Nintendo Wii title.

Today we have some potentially good news for fans of the Monkey Ball series, as Director Masao Shirosaki has recently revealed that remasters of other titles in the series are definitely being considered.

"When considering how to bring Super Monkey Ball to modern platforms with the limited time and budget we had, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz was the most reasonable option. Thirteen years ago was before I joined Sega; I'm really grateful for the fans who still support the Monkey Ball series after all these years, and who motivate me to create only the best for them."

Shirosaki takes this one step further, as he also reveals that they are aware of the first two titles in the Monkey Ball series being the ones fans want remastered.

"And of course, I am aware that the most favoured titles are the first two games. If there is enough support for Banana Blitz HD, this will open up doors for remaking the first two games or even a whole new title to the series. But for now, I'd be happy if everyone has fun playing Banana Blitz HD."

The Monkey Ball series has been pretty active over the years, but it hasn't seen a major home console release since Super Monkey Ball: Step & Roll released in 2010. While more remasters of the game would be nice, the fact that Shirosaki also mentions they could make a brand-new game is also pretty exciting.

Hopefully players will keep on supporting the series by playing Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD, since this will inevitably lead to either more remasters or brand-new entries in the Monkey Ball series; it's a win-win situation.
