    Super Monkey Ball Banana Rumble Multiplayer Battle Modes

    In Super Monkey Ball Banana Rumble, players have access to the Race, Banana Hunt, Ba-BOOM!, Gold Rush, and Robo Smash multiplayer battle modes. These modes will support two players locally and up to 16 players online. Players may also choose up to 15 bots to play these fun new modes. 

    Here’s a breakdown of each new mode, via SEGA: 


    Race against other players and reach the goal before they do but be careful! If you fall off the stage, you’ll have to start again at the last checkpoint you passed. Expect plenty of fun and exciting obstacles that will keep players on their toes!

    Banana Hunt

    The goal of Banana Hunt is simple – collect as many bananas as you can! Be on the lookout for the Banana Cloud that will randomly appear and rain down lots of Banana Bunches. During the last 30 seconds of the match, Fever Time will activate and Banana Bunches will appear all over the stage, so try to get lots of points before time runs out!


    Pass the bomb to your opponent and roll far away! If you’re not holding onto a bomb by the end of a round, you’ll be rewarded with points. Whoever has the most points after five rounds wins!

    Goal Rush

    In this team-based mode, your objective is to roll through goals to gain points, all the while working together to outscore the opposing team. At the end of the match, each team will receive points for every goal that matches their team color, so don’t count your bananas just yet!

    Robot Smash

    Destroy the bots! Two teams compete against each other by hitting giant robots. How much damage you do depends on the weight of your character and how fast you’re moving. The team with the most points at the end of the match wins!

    Super Monkey Ball Banana Rumble players may encounter item boxes in any of the five multiplayer battle modes. Rolling into them will grant the player one of many different items. Some items are even unique to certain characters.
