The official Super Monkey Ball Twitter account has announced that, in collaboration with iam8bit, a 2xLP Vinyl Soundtrack of the upcoming Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania will be produced.
This vinyl celebrates the franchise’s 20th anniversary and comes in 2 editions; the Limited Edition Monkey Ball Vinyl and Banana Yellow Open Edition. The tracks are compiled by Yuri Fukuda and feature remixed music by Hidenori Shoji, Yuri Fukuda, Chihiro Aoki, Saori Yoshida, and Satoshi Okamura. If you’re a huge Super Monkey Ball fan or know someone who is one, then this vinyl certainly seems to be a perfect purchase.
You can pre-order either of the vinyl’s 2 editions on iam8bit’s website. They will be released in Quarter 2 of 2022. Only a limited number of this vinyl will be produced so act fast if you want to secure a purchase.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania brings back elements from the Super Monkey Ball franchise’s past that many have been longing for well over a decade as it contains remasters of Super Monkey Ball, Super Monkey Ball 2, and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe. This package includes over 300 levels and 12 minigames for veterans and newcomers to sink dozens of hours into. In addition, the remastered effort has been faithfully developed as an enhanced version of the original with new graphics and content.
The latest entries of the Super Monkey Ball franchise have not been particularly well-received by fans; in fact, the majority, if not all of the titles post Gamecube era, have received overwhelmingly negative reactions from the fanbase. In a similar vein to Sonic Mania, perhaps, this package likely aims to be a soft reboot for the Super Monkey Ball franchise, and what better method of doing so than delving back in the past to revive the glory days?
Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania is releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 5, 2021.
