    I've been hankering for a good marble game, and I know there are several on the Wii. Does anyone recommend any specific title? I'd prefer one that has multiplayer, if at all possible. The only one that I don't want is Super Monkey Ball - I already have it.

    (I'd also take suggestions for the PSP, if there are any.)

    Yeah - I looked into Marble Saga: Kororinpa, but I can't find any information about whether or not it's a splitscreen multiplayer title. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    The story takes place with players heading out on a journey with Anthony the Ant as he searches for the Golden Sunflower. By guiding Anthony’s marble around the Ant World and searching for items which are valuable to help reach the Golden Sunflower, gamers will help Anthony save his colony. Along the way players will face dangerous mazes and use cool and amazing widgets and gadgets to guide Anthony to his objective. With multiple levels to explore and three difficulty stages within each level, no area is ever the same.

    Unique features in Marble Saga: Kororinpa allow fun customization for players. From designing the ball with attributes to helping players navigate through stages easier, to Miis and preset fun images, to an Edit Mode which allows for custom design of a unique stage, gamers can really make this entertaining experience their own. For a more competitive tone, a 4-person multiplayer mode allows players to compete with three other opponents on the same map as each races to the finish line. For more customization and group fun with others, the Wii Connect 24 feature allows gamers to share the unique stages they created with their friends or to receive extra stages from Hudson after the game’s launch via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Additionally, Wi-Fi Leaderboards let players compete online against each other to see who can navigate through the world the fastest.

    For those who can’t live without gaming peripherals, the Wii Balance Board can be used as players navigate through the world as the ball with this new feature. In addition, gamers can utilize 40 innovative and useful widgets to help assist them in guiding their marble, including shrinking machines, movable bridges, vacuum tubes, cannon vaults and more!

    Definitely the first title of Kororinpa. The second is a lot worse IMHO, the whole system just changed or so, it's weird. The game only weighs about 300 MB, it's a real gem.

    It has split-screen multiplayer IIRC.

    This is the game I'm talking about:
    Kororinpa: Marble Mania

    The sequel of 2009 isn't that fun IMHO
