Samba de Amigo: Party Central Brings the Dance to Switch This Summer

Samba de Amigo: Party Central heads to Nintendo's console this Summer.

Dreamcast cult-classic Samba de Amigo looks to be getting a revival very soon. Announced as part of the Nintendo Direct stream, Samba de Amigo: Party Central will be released on Nintendo’s platform this summer. Not a whole lot of info was shown, but we did get a couple of seconds of gameplay.

Things don’t seem dramatically different from previous installments. If we had to guess, this will likely play similarly to the Wii iteration of Samba de Amigo. With Joy-Con being decent enough Wii remote replacements, it shouldn’t feel too out of place. Taiko no Tatsujin works fine enough on the console, for instance.

Details on the eShop reveal that Party Central will contain 40 songs from “the world’s most popular genres” and that additional DLC will be released post-launch. This could mean that the soundtracks from the original Samba de Amigo and Wii installments will be made available.

There will also be an online option called “World Party Mode.” You’ll be able to take 12 amigos on the dance floor with you and battle against eight players in a global competition. Your amigos will have a range of customization options available, so you’ll have the chance to add your personal touch to everyone. It seems like fairly standard but welcomed stuff.

Samba de Amigo: Party Central is scheduled for a June 2023 release. There is no word on whether or not this will remain a Switch exclusive in the future.
