babylonian @ 12:45 am: Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz Confirmed for Revolution

"The Nintendo Revolution presents a totally unique avenue for our developers to explore the art of game design," said SEGA VP of marketing Scott A. Steinberg. "Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz will present a mind-boggling array of gameplay innovations that will excite and challenge gamerswhile pushing the boundaries of imagination forward."

Aiai and all his pals have signed on for the sequel, and for the first time in a Monkey Ball game the primates can jump when the player flicks the controller upwards. This should add another dimension to the single-player puzzle levels, as well as open up a world of possibilities for the ever popular mini-games. Ring toss and "Whack-a-mole" scenarios are just two of the new party games SEGA has planned.

Monkey Ball was the one of the first franchise that came to mind for me when the Revolution's controller was announced. No word yet on whether or not Amusement Vision's developing, but I doubt they'd miss this chance to match their best franchise with the ideal controller.

EDIT: Here's an interview with Sega employee Toshihiro Nagoshi on how the game will play on Revolution.
