Sales of Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD could lead to further series remakes or even a new game, according to director Masao Shirosaki.
“Of course, I am aware that the most favoured titles are the first two games,” he told Crunchy Roll. “If there is enough support for Banana Blitz HD, this will open up doors for remaking the first two games or even a whole new title to the series. But for now, I’d be happy if everyone has fun playing Banana Blitz HD.”
