Play with speed and play dress-up with unlockable Sonic in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD

Today, Sega announced that its upcoming Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD will roll with Sega’s classic mascot Sonic on October 29 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The unlockable character will come with some classic sound effects and other changes, with each of the existing cast getting costumes as well.

Sonic the Hedgehog is available as a hidden, unlockable character in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. Playing as the world’s fastest hedgehog comes with some unique effects. In addition to boasting incredible speed (obviously), selecting Sonic automatically changes all stages’ bananas to golden rings, complete with nostalgic, classic SFX!

Sonic isn’t the only hidden secret available in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD; skilled simian sphere-rollers will unlock a selection of costumes for every monkey in the base cast – just in time for Halloween!

Hold your horses though, you’ll still need to unlock Sonic by getting Champion medals in the story worlds, which is accomplished by clearing each world without a continue. Check out the trailer above, read our full review soon, and stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
