E3 06: Super Monkey Ball Adventure hands-on

PS2 and PSP gamers will get a little bonus with their monkeyshines - you'll be able to swap game saves from platform to platform. There's an extra card game on the handheld version that slowly reveals the many mysteries of the monkey world... should you care to investigate. The PSP version also boasts 15 unique puzzle levels not found on either console game.

Combining two distinct play types into one adventure game is a risky move, but things look relatively solid for this new take on the established franchise.
