Sega says Super Monkey Ball Bounce is inspired by the uber-popular Japanese arcade game pachinko. On a completely unrelated note, Peggle was also inspired by pachinko.

The latest adventure starring Sega's super primates promises 120 levels as well as 8 7 playable characters [update: Sega corrected an earlier press release], each with their own abilities. Look out for it as a free download - we suspect with in-app purchases - when it hits iOS and Android sometime this summer.
