Sega Corp. this week demonstrated Super Monkey Ball Banana Splitz to Sony Corp.’s Playstation Vita at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.
The demo included standard analog tilt control or motion-based tilt controls. The motion controls were accurate and allowed users to tilt gently or quickly to move the monkey ball towards the goal.
The title, to be sold Oct. 23, will utilize tilt functionality for motion control and the camera function to capture real-world objects to create custom stages.
The final game will include online multiplayer and global leaderboards accessible with GPS.
The Playstation Vita, which began sale in the U.S. Feb. 22, has sold 1.8 million units in global markets to date.
