Sega let fly with a press release today officially announcing that Samba De Amigo
was coming to the Wii and it was chock full of information. Yes, it was information that we already knew
, but information just the same. It's still a maraca game and it's still, curiously, being developed by Gearbox, the company that brought us Brothers In Arms
, which never struck us as particularly "samba-infused."
Rick Naylor, director of marketing at SEGA, thinks that Samba De Amigo
on Nintendo's mega-popular system was a natural fit, saying, "The Wii's controllers enable players to enjoy Samba De Amigo
's unique gameplay without having to purchase an expensive peripheral." ... We're assuming he means other
than the Wii.
