Sega Flings Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll Release Date At Us

Officially reminding us of the game's existence, as teased in July, Sega announced Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll for the Wii today, issuing a slightly more accurate winter 2010 release date for the sequel.

Sega confirms that both Wii Balance Board and Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls can be used for the game, which features "all new mind-blowing puzzles and party games." Poor simians trapped in plastic balls include AiAi, MeeMee, GonGon and Baby, the tortured beasts forced to endure their spherical prisons since the original GameCube game.

Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll is in development at Sega Studios Japan, which must mean new pictures of Toshihiro "Brown Man" Nagoshi will be circulating by year's end.
