Hello everyone! This is Sho Nanmoku from Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania. Today, I’m excited to announce that Persona 5’s Morgana will join the Monkey Gang in Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania as a playable character! Morgana will be available to all players as a DLC character when the game launches on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on October 5.
Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania – 20th Anniversary Special Projectth The anniversary of this beloved series is 20 years marked by joy and playfulness, with a charming cast we have spent countless hours with. We wanted to celebrate this milestone by expanding our membership to include new friends brought in from the Sega library who will join AiAi and the monkey gang on their next adventure.
Bold, witty and charming, Morgana was the obvious choice.
Persona 5 is one of the greatest RPGs of all time, and Phantom Thieves includes some of the most memorable characters in recent Sega history. We considered to include so many characters from Persona and other Sega franchises, but from the beginning Morgana was too cute to refuse! Everything about the character design matches the Super Monkey Ball world: playful ears, big eyes, a mischievous smile, and of course, hilarious reactions every time he takes to the air.
From there, it was just about the details – complementing the look with the classic yellow bandana and Morgana belt, and also about taking care of the treasure trove (definitely No a) the cat had many chests to collect along the way to each goal.
We want to thank our friends at Atlus for their help in organizing this collaboration, and we hope all Persona fans will enjoy rolling around the worlds of Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania as their favorite feline Phantom Thief!
You can pre-order Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania for PS4 and PS5 today. DLC for Morgana will be released on both platforms on November 2.
