Banana Blitz screens blitz

Friday 15 September 2006
If your eyes need a rest from this week's contrast of dentist's surgery-white Wii promo shots and in-your-face action titles, then this fresh tribe of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz screens should be just the ticket.

SMB always seemed an obvious fit for Wii - as we found when discussing the game with creator Toshihiro Nagoshi - both in terms of controls and its breezy, pastel-coloured look.

Featuring tweaks to the core world-tilting, banana-hunting gameplay, including an intuitive 'monkey jump' with a Wii-mote flick, Banana Blitz also pitches the largest tent of party games in the series yet - as you can see below.
