Sega announced on Wednesday that its Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania game will add Hello Kitty as a playable DLC character upon the game's launch for US$4.99.

Sega previously revealed that the game would add Kazuma Kiryu from the Yakuza series. The game will add Morgana from Persona 5 on November 2. Other DLC characters include Beat from Jet Set Radio and Sonic the Hedgehog and Miles "Tails" Prower.

Sega will launch Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania — an HD remaster of the Super Monkey Ball, Super Monkey Ball 2, and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe games in a single compilation — on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC via Steam on October 5.

Sega describes the game:

Roll, tilt, and bounce through imaginative worlds as AiAi and his all-star cast of monkey friends race to thwart the nefarious schemes of evil monkey mad scientist Dr. Bad-Boon! No banana is safe in this epic new Monkey Ball adventure, featuring modern graphics and features, immersive comic book-style storytelling, 4-player local coop, online challenges and leaderboards, and a barrel's worth of new playable characters that rekindle the magic of the iconic originals.

Sega will release a digital deluxe edition of the game that includes six extra classic character skins, three "legendary console" skins, 10 customizable Items, and a soundtrack. A special 20th anniversary edition of the game at retail outlets will include an art book, reversible cover, collectable sleeve, and 10 cosmetic items.
