The Super Monkey Ball team is having fun with some of the memes around their new Sonic crossover. Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania is rolling to Nintendo Switch in October and SEGA’s favorite hedgehog will be present. A lot of fans have begun joking that all this crossover business will lead to a weird game where it truly all blends together. (Let’s all just ignore SEGA All-Stars Racing for just one second.) The idea of a Sonic Forces with Monkey Ball is just too silly not to smile at. During the development of the latest title in the series, it encountered some leaks that tipped off fans early. But, the Super Monkey Ball team is leaning into it with some of these jokes on Twitter. What was considered to be a nice surprise during the E3 Nintendo Direct has blossomed into a very anticipated game for owners of the system. Check out the post right here.
Please stop the leaks! 🙈 https://t.co/PNGKPiGUq1
