Super Monkey Ball 2 Sakura Edition now with Multiplayer Action

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

SEGA’s Super Monkey Ball franchise was just past its iOS popularity apex when they launched Super Monkey Ball 2: (Sakura Edition) in April 2010 as a universal game on the heels of the launch of the original iPad. The classic tilt-controlled platformer, however, sat untouched after that until last Christmas when it received it’s iOS 5 makeover. Now SEGA has updated the game again adding a new multiplayer option.

Players can compete against up to three friends via Game Center, each playing a different character: AiAi, MeeMee, Baby, or my favorite, GonGon. It’s a quick race to the finish line with the option to pick the level. Random matching is also available, but the wait can be over five minutes to find a single partner.

The new mode is welcome and may help revive Super Monkey Ball 2, but what doesn’t appear updated are the graphics. Here’s hoping for Retina display graphics in a new update soon.
