Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll, the latest game in the fan favorite Super Monkey Ball franchise, will offer a whole new way for people to play using the Wii Balance Board. Players will feel like they are the monkey in the ball as their movements on the Wii Balance Board move their favorite characters through more than 70 brand new stages in the main game and 21 multiplayer mini-games. Players who do not own a Wii Balance Board will still be able to play through the entire game using their Wii Remote™ and Nunchuck™ controllers. The game also features the all-new two-player co-op mode where friends work together to blast away obstacles using the Wii Remote to clear a path for their monkey-rolling teammate on the Wii Balance Board. The game is perfect for people of all ages providing incredible entertainment and promoting active movement and a great way for the family to bond—all together.
Super Monkey Ball Step & Roll™ will be available for the Wii February 9, 2010. For more information about Chiquita visit http://www.chiquitabananas.com.
