New Super Monkey Ball trademarked in Japan

SEGA has trademarked Tabegoro! Super Monkey Ball in Japan.

The publisher has been looking into its back catalogue recently and we’re sure everyone would love a new Monkey Ball. The series was first released in 2001 and last landed for console on PS Vita in 2012. There was a mobile version after that, although it didn’t last long.

There’s no word if a new game will actually appear anytime soon or on what platform, although we suspect if a new game ever does arrive, the Nintendo Switch will be its most likely port of call.
