Jet Set Radio’s Beat joins Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania
Sega has revealed that Beat from Jet Set Radio will be available as a playable character in Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania.
Beat will join AiAi, MeeMee, Baby, GonGon, Doctor, and YanYan in the collection and is “unlockable on all platforms through normal gameplay at launch.” Instead of collecting bananas, Beat will be rolling around on the lookout for spray paint cans. See Beat in action below:
The upcoming game bundles together more than 300 recreated stages from Super Monkey Ball, Super Monkey Ball 2, and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe, and also features updated graphics, four-player local co-op, and online challenges and leaderboards.
Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC from October 5th.
