IGN hands-on: Samba de Amigo

It's been eight years since Samba de Amigo arrived on the Dreamcast, and IGN are happy to report this monkey has aged well. IGN got to shake a couple Wii Remotes to the rhythm game at Nintendo's Media Summit and found it looking good and playing well.

The original Samba was kind of a "Maraca Hero" that had players shaking maraca peripherals in time with various pieces of Latin music. The whole affair is set against an extremely colorful backdrop of exuberant dancers and the monkey mascot. There are no peripherals for the Wii version, though. Players can use either two Remotes or a Remote and Nunchuk. It might take some getting used to for seasoned Samba players, but IGN found the control scheme worked well.

The story is too old to be commented.
