Super Monkey Ball Adventure is rolling this way, and the monkeys have a tale to tell. Classic "Party" mode is back, along with a "Challenge" mode, while players who want to play through the adventure will select "Story" mode. Players must unite the feuding monkey nations of Kongri-la and Monkitropolis while fighting grumpy Naysayers, conquering 60 quests, solving 50 puzzle trays, and helping people within the five monkey realms that include Jungle Island, Zootopia, and Moonhaven.
Over 50 characters will guide players through the main adventure, and more than 20 of them are playable in the other modes. The balls have ten new abilities also, and can be accessed with the chant system. The abilities include sticky, bounce, speed, hover, and tether. Four classic party games, including "Monkey Fight" and "Monkey Bowling," are available for group play, while "Monkey Castles" and "Monkey Pinball" are new to the series. The PSP version includes Wi-Fi multiplayer functions, secrets of the Monkey Ball back-story, and a trading card game. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game Guide
