Super Monkey Ball director – Wants to make a new game

Masao Shirosaki, director of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania, said in a recent interview that he would love the chance to make a brand new entry in the long-running series.

As of late the Monkey Ball team have been working on remakes such as Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania and Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, so Mr. Shirosaki is itching to create a new Super Monkey Ball game. Mr. Shirosaki also says that he tries to read all the tweets that players have published regarding Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania because he is so grateful of the fans support and is genuinely interested to see what players think of the series in 2021.

Masao Shirosaki on new Super Monkey Ball game

As this game and the previous one are remakes, I do feel that I want to create a new Super Monkey Ball game. I have ideas on what it could be like.

I’m looking forward to seeing how Super Monkey Ball will grow. This is not something I can do on my own, so I would like everyone to first enjoy Banana Mania and if there are enough voices looking forward to the next title, it may come true. I have been looking at everyone’s reactions on social media and no matter what language it’s in, I always translate it and read through them.

I would be overjoyed if we could create the future of a new Super Monkey Ball together.
