Samba de Amigo


13:2903/10/2008Posted by Zoheir BeigNo Comments

There is perhaps no greater authority on all things Dreamcast than this writer’s girlfriend (this bit may not be true); when questioned about her thoughts towards the semi-legendary Samba de Amigo she said “it was the Wii before the Wii existed…Sometimes even when I don’t have the Dreamcast connected I shake the maracas to hear the ‘chk-chk’ sound”. However strange that may sound (particularly the last part), there is an element of truth to both sentiments. Firstly the Wii and Samba de Amigo – one of the classic rhythm games, and certainly one of the first to suggest that the central theme needn’t be restricted to more ‘traditional’ instruments – are, in theory, a perfect match. Secondly, a large part of the affection that SEGA’s Latin-themed simian-fest still generates revolves around the maracas themselves.
