imageBefore Super Monkey Ball became a hit on Gamecube it was an arcade game with a banana joystick. Ever since then the Super Monkey Ball series appeared everywhere accept arcades with future games on consoles, handhelds, and mobile phones.


But, Super Monkey Ball may be returning to its roots. Sega trademarked Super Monkey Ball Ticket Blitz in Europe and the USA. Given the name, this is probably going to be some kind of ticket dispensing machine. Since ticket machines aren’t as popular as UFO catchers in Japan, Super Monkey Ball Ticket Blitz is probably being made for the West. Perhaps, we’ll see new Monkey Ball machines in Gameworks in the not-so-distant future.
