Samba de Amigo

Samba de Amigo (サンバDEアミーゴ) is a series of music games released by Sega developed by Sonic Team.


Samba de Amigo (サンバDEアミーゴ, Sanba de Amīgo) was originally a arcade game for the Sega NAOMI released in December 1999 that used maracas as controllers. A year later the game was ported to the Dreamcast with the maracas made as peripherals. The series also had a 2008 game for the Wii developed by Gearbox Software.

Sonic the Hedgehog from the Sonic series and Ulala from Space Channel 5 make guest appearances in the Wii version.


Rhythm balls flying in six directions are displayed on the screen, and players operate two special maracas controllers in time with the movement of the rhythm balls and the rhythm of the song (the Dreamcast version can also be played with a standard controller). The Wii version is controlled by shaking the Wii Remote.


The music used in the game is titled Samba, and many of the songs are selected from popular Latin music. The Dreamcast version also had songs from other Sega games on the disc. Despite being already on the disc users had to go online to "download" them, this was done to get users online.
