Called the Spin Dash, this will allow players to grant their monkey a quick burst of speed. It can be useful for navigating tricky sections or overtaking opponents, according to SEGA.

On top of its diverse characters, creators of Super Monkey Ball Banana Rumble also confirmed that the game will have more room and options for customization. Players can unlock a staggering collection of 300 customization items. These ranged from accessories, clothing and even unique ape balls.
