The Jet Set Radio franchise is one that Sega rarely acknowledges, so this crossover is somewhat surprising. In Banana Mania, Beat ditches his usual roller blades for a giant ball — though he’ll still be picking up cans of spray paint instead of bananas.
Sonic made an appearance in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD, so there’s always a chance he’ll join Banana Mania as well. With Beat’s inclusion, it’d be nice to see a few more Sega characters added to the collection.
Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania launches for Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam on October 5, 2021. It brings together remastered stages and minigames from Super Monkey Ball, Super Monkey Ball 2, and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe.
