Earlier this weekend, a few images of an unannounced Super Monkey Ball title popped into Sega of America's Flickr account labeled with the tags "Vita". After the the images were mistakenly uploaded, the images were removed. However, today Sega has officially announced the game's existence, along with an early 2012 estimated release date.
The last Super Monkey Ball title to grace a Sony platform was Super Monkey Ball Adventure back in 2006. The title had middling reviews at best, so here's hoping that this title will fare better than it's elder cousin.
