Press release (10th November 2005):

    Super Monkey Ball Rolls Onto The Nintendo DS!

    AiAi and the Super Monkey Ball Gang Return with All-New Worlds and Party Games

    LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (November 10, 2005)
    – SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll, exclusively on the Nintendo DS™ System. Slated for release in March 2006, Aiai, MeeMee, GonGon, and Baby are back in true classic Super Monkey Ball style, with all-new gameplay control using the Nintendo DS stylus and wireless multiplayer modes!

    The monkey madness returns with 10 worlds and over 50 new stages in the single player Challenge Mode. Roll the monkey ball around with the stylus or Control Pad to reach your goal and unlock new worlds. Play straight through the worlds and stages from easy to hard, or go to Practice Mode to rehearse the levels you find the most difficult.

    "Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll offers bite-sized gameplay that's perfect for handheld gaming," said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America. "The Nintendo DS touch screen allows for fluid, pin-point control, making this an ideal platform for the series."

    Those mad monkeys boast a total of six games in Party Mode for both single and multiplayer platforms. Challenge your friends to a Monkey Race or box your way to victory in Monkey Fight. And, nothing can be more satisfying than hitting a hole-in-one on Monkey Mini Golf or striking 'em down with Monkey Bowling. Exclusively for the DS system, are two brand new party games – Monkey Hockey and Monkey Wars – which will ensure that the monkey mayhem never stops!

    Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll is scheduled for release in March 2006.

    A real Ball!

    Look at that monkey roll!!!

    Super Monkey Ball steps up to the next level on Nintendo DS with the latest installment, Super Monkey Ball: Touch and Roll!

    Features

    • Three Single-player modes: Challenge, Practice and Replay
    • Six party games: All new Monkey Wars and Monkey Air Hockey join the roster of Super Monkey Ball favorites Monkey Race, Monkey Fight, Monkey Bowling and Monkey Mini-Golf
    • Bring your friends to the party: All party games support up to four players and allow you to play as either a boss or a normal player. If your friends don't own a copy of the game, use DS Download to play Monkey Wars and Monkey Air Hockey
    • Total touch-screen control

    Precision in Super Monkey Ball games has always been important, but the use of the Stylus almost makes you spoiled with control, making the Control Pad archaic. You use the DS touch screen to control your encapsulated simian as it rolls around various stages. You want to keep your monkey on the playing field as opposed to having him roll off into a bottomless pit.

    Although there are more than 100 new stages to roll through, the new party games bring some sport and long-term playability to Super Monkey Ball: Touch & Roll. Up to four players can go for the glory in Monkey Hockey, Bowling and Mini-Golf, to name a few. The multiplayer features both multicard and DS Download Play. The Mini-Golf game especially is a lot of fun to play.

    Bottom Line

    There's plenty of challenge in this title and the Stylus control lets you put the monkeys' fate in your hands!
