Sega Japan has let slip that it’s currently underway with Super Monkey Ball for the Nintendo DS, some of the best news we’ve heard all year.
The game makes full use of the stylus input, with the Monkey Ball game world tipped and rotated via the touch panel, likely making for the most precise, dare we say enjoyable Monkey Ball outing to date.
It is unclear at time of press whether the as-yet untitled Monkey Ball DS is an all-new title or a rework of Super Monkey Balls one and two. We can confirm that it will be released in Japan in December though, and will be playable at Tokyo Game Show – so check back then for hands-on details.
