Super Monkey Ball 2 is a Nintendo GameCube title from 2002 created by Sega's Amusement Vision department. The player must roll a ball through difficult mazes and obstacle courses in a strict time limit. The plot revolves around the evil Dr. Bad Boon stealing all the bananas on Monkey Island, and it's up to AiAi and his friends to save the island from starvation!

The Japanese Super Monkey Ball 2 website would upload wallpapers for every month of the year. So far, 14 wallpapers are known to exist, however, only eight have been found with half of them being in a low resolution. These wallpapers were rediscovered and posted to Twitter by the user @ShittyPaste on Jun 23rd, 2020.[1]

Later on November 8th of the same year, the user @BenSachsD would uncover some more wallpapers for the game.[2]
