Beat From Jet Set Radio Confirmed Playable in Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania with New Trailer; Future Character Reveals Promised

The official Super Monkey Ball Youtube channel uploaded a new trailer for the upcoming Super Monkey Ball Banana, revealing the character Beat from Jet Set Radio being playable. Alongside this news, Sega announced that several more “iconic guest characters” will be joining the rolling fray when the title releases this Fall.

Jet Set Radio is a beloved Dreamcast classic from 2000 where street artists uniquely fought to showcase free expression. While playing as Beat, players will collect spray cans instead of bananas, yet another homage to the source title.
