Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout developer Mediatonic just announced a new collaboration, this time with SEGA and Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s upcoming platform party game Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, scheduled to be released on October 5, 2021. Banana Mania will be a remastered version of the three first games of the Super Monkey Ball franchise.
The crossover features the arrival of a new and exclusive costume to Fall Guys, in which players will be able to dress up as AiAi, the protagonist of the Super Monkey Ball franchise. The costume is sure to help fans in their wait for the release of Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania.
According to Mediatonic, players will be able to get AiAi’s costume in exchange for 10 Crowns. 5 for the upper body costume and 5 for the lower body one. The costume will be available in the game from September 27 to September 30. To get crowns in Fall Guys, you need to either level up to selected levels or win the final round of any competition. You can check out the official trailer showcasing the game’s new AiAi costume below:
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout was first released in February 2020 and has received, since then, many crossovers with big titles and franchises such as Half-Life, Ratchet & Clank, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Godzilla. This will be the second big crossover to take place this month, as September also featured one between the game and Ember Lab’s recently released Kena: Bridge of Spirits, which featured the arrival of two new costumes.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is currently on its fifth season, which brought a series of new Jungle-themed games and challenges to players, as well as new costumes and cosmetics. The version also featured the debut of new limited-time events. No official date was revealed regarding the debut of its sixth season, but if we assume that the current one will run for just as long as the fourth one did, it should end somewhere around November 2021.
On a side note, the crossover and the upcoming release of Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania may come followed by a bittersweet feeling thanks to reports surrounding its creator Toshihiro Nagoshi, which revealed that he may be leaving SEGA in favor of joining NetEase Inc.
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is available now on PC and PS4/PS5. Versions of the game for the Xbox One, Series X/S, and the Nintendo Switch are expected to be released later this year.
