Samba de Amigo - Preview




The samba-inspired rhythm music game made popular in the arcades is shaking its way onto the Wii™,
on September the 23rd!





Keeping the beat with over 40 songs on a Samba-inspired sound track,
players shake the Wii Remote and Nunchuk like maracas,
and compete with friends to see who has the best moves.

Throughout the dynamic songs there will be
opportunities to strike a pose for extra points.
Friends and family will be thoroughly entertained
cheering each other on as they anxiously await their next turn.
Special Modes expand gameplay with Quick Play, Classic,
Battle, Survival, Hustle, and Mini-games.





For those who haven't played it, Samba de Amigo was
a rhythm game from Sega. It was developed by Sonic Team
and began life in the arcades. You had to shake maracas in
tune to the beat at high, mid, and low points denoted onscreen
by three sets of colorful circles on the left and right sides of the screen.
You were also asked to "pose" at points during the music
and hold your maracas still.





The game struck a chord with players, and a home version,
converted to the Dreamcast, was released in 2000.
A sequel, Samba de Amigo: ver 2000, was released
only in Japan for both arcades and the Dreamcast
and never found its way over to the States.
The follow-up introduced Hustle mode, which added a new twist
to the maraca-shaking action. You were tasked with shaking one
or both maracas back and forth between two of the six positions
or doing a full rotation starting from one position
and looping all the way back around.

Fortunately, all of the above fun has found its way
into the Wii game, which, according to Sega reps at Nintendo's event,
will be a mix of content from the original Samba
and ver 2000 as well as some new music.





The visuals faithfully re-create the look of the original
Dreamcast game, with some elements taken from ver 2000.
You'll see Amigo and the game's quirky cast of characters
getting their groove on in the colorful stages.
The graphics still pop, thanks to the game's eccentric
art design and bright color palette.





You'll hear a cheering crowd, maraca shakes,
and chimes along with the songs to offer encouragement
and audio cues that you're doing well.





It all sounds and looks great, hopefully it will live up to
the standard that the other versions set up as well.





Are you as excited as this dawg,
in getting Samba De Amigo for the Wii?





Rockn.
