Okay, this is definitely the best guest star yet. Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania will have a number of cameos from SEGA franchises, such as Sonic, Tails, and Beat from Jet Set Radio. However, the most recently announced playable character is the Dragon of Dojima himself: Kazuma Kiryu. That's right — the Yakuza franchise is represented in the funny monkey game, and we're fully here for it.

Kiryu has been shrunk down and squeezed into a plastic ball to join the roster of playable characters in the remake. The game features all the levels and mini games from Super Monkey Ball 1, 2, and Deluxe, but it's going above and beyond with these brilliant SEGA guest stars. Look at Kaz go in the above trailer, collecting what looks like Staminan medicine from the Yakuza games instead of bananas. Brilliant.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania releases for PlayStation 5 and PS4 on 3rd October. Will you be playing as Kiryu? Turn up the heat in the comments section below.
