Bananas in a game? You got that ripe!
Say yellow to our color-changing (and sometimes precarious) friend: the banana.
You may be asking, “Why do you want to talk about bananas?” First, we love these tubes of deliciousness. Second, have you noticed the importance of bananas in some games?
From throwin’ to growin’, in this bunch of games, bananas are puddin’ in the work!
Return to Monkey Island
Banter with old friends and new faces on familiar islands now manned by a dangerous crew. Explore the unknown as you work your way out of tough predicaments. Clever puzzles, bizarre situations, and devastating ripostes are all that stand between Guybrush and glory…and maybe some bananas.
Donkey Kong Country™: Tropical Freeze
Arctic invaders have turned Donkey Kong Island into their personal frozen fortress, and it’s up to you to save the day. Barrel-blast into nonstop platforming action as Donkey Kong and his funky bunch as they use their own distinct abilities to overcome challenges and frosty foes.
Mario Kart™ 8 Deluxe
Hit the road anytime, anywhere with the Mario Kart™ 8 Deluxe game. Send your opponents spinning with a Banana, knock ‘em around using Super Star, or show them what fear is with a Spiny Shell. And with the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Pass DLC*, you can peel out on even more courses!
Mario Strikers™: Battle League
In the Mario Strikers™: Battle League game, you can put best foot forward in Strike, a different kind of soccer that includes battles and fast-paced chaos! Get gritty and try to score the most goals by tackling enemies, using items (may we suggest the Banana?), and pulling off score-boosting moves.
Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania
AiAi and the bunch are in a race to stop the mad scientist Dr. Bad-Boon from blowing up Jungle Island. Bounce, tilt, and roll your way through hundreds of stages from Super Monkey Ball, Super Monkey Ball 2, and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe to help the gang save Jungle Island and the gang’s precious bananas.
Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you can raise animals, go fishing, craft items, and tend crops as you make the farm of your dreams. If you’re looking to grow fruit to give as gifts, use in recipes, or just puddin’ a bit more in your in-game gold in your pocket, try planting Banana Trees!
Gather a crew of 4-15 locally** or online to prepare your spaceship for departure. But beware: one or more random players among the Crew are imposters looking to sabotaging the mission. Try to get the last laugh by wearing the banana peel-shaped hat, Peeled. It’s always the bananas they least expect!
Slay the Spire
Ready to climb an ever-changing Spire? Craft your own unique card deck, encounter bizarre creatures, and discover relics of immense power in an ever-changing dungeon. Choose your path, face different enemies, and be confronted with the tough decisions, like do you choose the Banana, Donut, or Box?
Super Smash Bros.™ Ultimate
Legendary game worlds and fighters collide in the ultimate showdown! Battle it out locally** or online*** with a huge roster of characters, stages, and items. Could picking up a Banana Gun lead to victory or defeat? Just remember, you can use the left-over Banana Peel to slip up the competition.
