Part of SEGA’s ongoing Sega Forever smartphone initiative, the gaming company earlier today launched Super Monkey Ball: Sakura Edition onto both their iOS and Android catalog as a free to play title. Sega Forever launched as an initiative to bring the companies expansive and iconic library of games from the past into the modern era on smart devices as a free service. Initially launched on smart devices back in 2010, Super Monkey Ball: Sakura Edition would exist to celebrate the series 10th anniversary.
To keep the game alive with a free to play model, the game will have embedded ads within. With that being said, however, advertisements can be disabled with a one-time $1.99 fee. At such a low price, you might be surprised to hear just how fully-fledged the title is, rocking a total of 125 stages and 6 worlds within.
Easily one of my childhood defining titles, Super Monkey Ball is a game I can only hope to see more of in the not-so-distant future. With a long flight ahead of me, you can bet I’ll be downloading this one to see how it plays up in the sky.
