Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania finally brings the series back in a major way today, 5th October, on PlayStation 5 and PS4. SEGA's arcade platformer about simians in spheres has been out of the running for a while, but this remake, bundling together all the levels and mini-games from the titles fans actually care about, sees its status restored.

To celebrate the game's launch, we have the above new trailer to enjoy, and we'd say it's worth a watch. The video swaps between gameplay footage and some pretty wonderful animation work, courtesy of Powerhouse Animation. These jolly, hand-drawn scenes put us in mind of the animated intro to Sonic Mania, which was just as delightful.
