Origins edit

The game debuted in Japan in 2001 as an upright arcade cabinet and later that year was released as one of the three original Nintendo GameCube games.

Sequels edit

The popularity of the simple game in Japan, the United States and Europe has led to several sequels and ports: Super Monkey Ball 2 for the GameCube; Super Monkey Ball Deluxe for PlayStation 2 and Xbox, which included levels from both GameCube releases plus original levels, as well as updating the party games; Super Monkey Ball Jr., a release for Nintendo Game Boy Advance based on the original title; a release under the original title for the Nokia N-Gage gaming system; and an release for the Nintendo DS entitled Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll. It is also featured in the Sega SuperStars Eye Toy game for the PlayStation 2.
