Sega's Super Monkey Ball series has had an odd history on mobile. Back around the time when the first iPhone hit the scene, there was a lame pixel-based Monkey Ball that was available as one of the App Store's selling points. Suffice it to say it wasn't all that great. Then in 2012 Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition was released on iOS and Android, though the Android version was eventually pulled from the Play Store in 2015. Well, since then people have been clamoring for a new Monkey Ball game on Android, and obviously, the SEGA Forever program is the best way to go about releasing such a title.
If you've been longing for some sort of old-school Gamecube action on your Android device and happen to love monkeys trapped in transparent balls, then today is your lucky day - Sega released Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition in all of its pink fluffy goodness to the Android Market Play Store.
For the uninitiated, Super Monkey Ball is a classic game in which you control one of four playable monkeys encased in a translucent ball though a series of twists and turns to reach the goal.
The game features six worlds with 125 total levels, as well as four additional mini games: Monkey Target, Monkey Bowl, Monkey Golf, and Monkey Base - a multi-player mode exclusively for tablets.
