What Sega character should join Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania next?

Billy HAtcher Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania is going all out with its insanely fun roster, most recently announcing that Persona 5‘s beloved talking cat Morgana will be a playable character (a purrfect fit, I might add). Nobody anticipated the game becoming an all-out SEGA All-Stars situation, but I certainly am not complaining. There is still room for plenty more guest characters in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania. If you could nominate any Sega character to join the party, who would you pick?

I want to see Sega dig deeper and grab a forgotten character like Billy Hatcher. Billy Hatcher didn’t make much of a splash with his lone game, Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg, but its small but dedicated fanbase has been delighted a few times by Billy’s guest appearances in various Sega games. Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania could certainly benefit from a guest character representing a less well-known corner of Sega’s catalog.

What Sega character would you like to see in the newest Super Monkey Ball game? Are you excited about the characters we’ve received so far? Are you excited for the game in general? Personally, I’m not joking when I say that the game is my most anticipated for the rest of the year. I cannot wait to revisit two of my favorite GameCube games on a fresh system.
