Monkey Ball’s Japanese Twitter released a comparison shot of Monkey Ball’s lead primate, AiAi, from the original Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz on Wii on the left and the upcoming HD version on the right. Cel-shading has helped the Wii version age gracefully, but the model on the right is undeniably sharper.
Sega also released a short developer interview with the remake’s producer and director, Masao Shirosaki, on Monkey Ball’s inception. You can watch the interview here:
