    SEGA's new 3DS Super Monkey Ball game has received its first trailer, which includes a good deal of gameplay footage for you to enjoy. Have a look below. [/p]

    Super Monkey Ball 3D is a new entry in SEGA's popular action puzzle series. The 3DS game will feature the single player puzzle campaign, a monkey racing mode, and a sort of combat mode. There will be a multiplayer mode which can allow up to 4 players to compete via local wireless (assumed to not have online until further confirmation). The game will also have two control schemes. You can choose to either use the more traditional slide pad to control the game, or the 3DS' built in gyroscopic motion controls which allow you to tilt the system to control the rolling physics. It should be noted that the 3D effect is said to clash with the tilt sensor since you have to have the system tilted in a specific way to be able to see the effect properly. So using the tilt mechanic could cause potential conflicts with viewing angles if using the 3D effect.

    Super Monkey Ball 3D does not yet have a release date, though it is expected to be out sometime next year. The 3DS itself is launching in March in Japan. It is unknown whether this game will be launched alongside the system. [/p]

    Looks nice, but not the kind of game I'd buy.
    I think it has a good chance of being a launch title (well, in the US at least).

    Looks like it'll be great. I like the Super Monkey Ball games, and this one looks like it'll be worth buying (Then again, all games will have to be bought).

    I wonder how 3d is used in this game (apart from causing motion sickness).

    So it'll be like Kirby's tilt'n'tumble or whatever?

    Sounds fun.

    I love monkey ball, this is a no-brainer for me. Even though I'll just use the slide pad so I can keep the 3D.

    I'd appreciate it if they would release 3DS Trailers and screenshots in stereoscopic 3D like on youtube at least...

    Right at this point I have serious doubts about if 3D is going to upgrade this game to a whole new level. The point of view already is quite 3D-ish. I can't see that 3D is going to prove much, especially if Monkey is always in front of you, it would be different if Monkey moved further away sometimes and then back again.

    1. With youtube offering 3D video for quite a while now, why the hell are preview videos for a 3D system not actually in 3D!!!!!

    2. I have yet to play a monkeyball game on any system where it hasn't crashed because of flying too high or something stupid like that (target game).

    3. monkeyball is monkeyball is monkeyball, I don't really wan't exactly the same game on a new system (unless its a game i really like, this however isn't one of those games).

    You mean youtube look ugly and pixelated?
    Of course it is, it's just a crappy video quality with some zooming to stretch to the player.

    Yes it is, the 3DS renders two pictures for each frame. It's the same like on youtube in the mode cross-eyed or parallel.

    If that Kirby game is like the newer/more recent Monkey Balls, then yes. But I really don't see how this will be greater. As in, I won't be getting it.
