A new release in the Super Monkey Ball series of puzzle platformer games has been revealed with no developer mentioned for Sony’s upcoming PlayStation Vita format, the successor of the PlayStation Portable. The game will feature the standard tilt-based maze and puzzle format, collectible bananas and party mini-games for multiple players. The game will also feature PlayStation Vita-exclusive features including dual analog stick controls, motion tilt, use of the Vita’s very unique backside touchpad and extra features through online interactions.
The game is scheduled to be released sometime in 2012, likely around the launch of the PlayStation Vita outside of Japan. After the jump is the teaser trailer which hints at day and night gameplay features.
