Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD is the Xbox One port of the popular Nintendo Wii game that also made it onto mobile devices in some form. It features clearer visuals, as well as enhanced support for a regular controller. The goal of the game is to guide your monkey, encased in a ball, to the end of the level while you collect bananas. Sounds simple, right? It really isn't. The levels are tricky and there are a lot of pitfalls along the way.
Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD doesn't appear to be Xbox One X Enhanced at the moment and looks a little blurry on modern displays. Let's hope that Sega issues a patch for the console because it seems like a wasted opportunity. The franchise is quite popular so a lot of Xbox One owners will pick it up.
Since Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD is a somewhat old game, many expected the title be available for a discounted priced. Well, it's $40 on the Microsoft Store. While the title offers dozens of hours of fun, and a lot of replayability, it's still quite expensive for a smaller experience. If you absolutely love the game and can't wait for a sale, then you should get it right now.
