Ole!

Samba de Amigo, another of Sega's wacky music/rhythm games, is getting set to explode onto the Dreamcast scene. With its bizarre new maracas controllers and crazy cast of characters, Samba looks to be one of the most comical titles that Sega will release this year.

Developed by the world famous Sonic Team and headed up by Japanese game guru Yuji Naka, Samba attempts to bring some Latin flavor to your Dreamcast, straight from uh... Japan. Songs also include pop hits such as Take On Me, Tubthumping, and that damn Macarena song.

Basically, the point of the game is to shake your maracas (which come packaged with the game) to the funky game beats at the correct time. Little blue bubbles tell you which direction to shake your groove thing, making Samba very easy to pick up. Certain parts of the songs also have "posing" periods, in which players stop shaking their maracas and strike a given pose. Vogue!

Samba de Amigo features five different modes of game play and a few mini-games to keep you entertained. There's also a two player battle mode where you can bomb your opponent with your madcap maraca madness.

It may sound weird, but we can tell you firsthand that it's absolutely hilarious and is shaping up to be a great party game. You should see the GR editors play this after a few beers...er...cervejas.

Probably the wackiest rhythm game that has ever come to light (yes, even more wacky than Parappa), Samba de Amigo promises to give players a chance to experience games in new, exciting, and totally outrageous ways.

Ai Caramba! Samba de Amigo is due out in August for the Dreamcast.
