The Samba De Amigo Series Is Making A Comeback

by Blake Hester on Feb 08, 2023 at 05:21 PM

Nintendo announced a new Samba de Amigo game today during its most recent Direct live stream. Samba de Amigo: Party Central will be released this summer.

Party Central will feature 40 songs "from across the world’s most popular music genres." Players use the Nintendo Switch's Joy-Con controllers in rhythm with the beat. The game will also have local and online competitive multiplayer and party modes. 

You can check out the reveal trailer below:

Samba de Amigo: Party Central is actually a sequel to the first Samba de Amigo, developed by Sonic Team and first released on the Sega Dreamcast in 1999. It's since been ported to the Wii (though it wasn't very good) and had a long life in arcades.
