The Samba de Amigo Box Set

 As one of the best games that defined the Dreamcast, Samba De Amigo is one of the premier rhythm games of all time. Unfortunately not that many people have actually played it.

While I have greatly enjoyed this unique game, I have not been privileged enough to possess the full Samba De Amigo box set that includes the official maracas and such. GagaMan, from The Dreamcast Junkyard, on the other hand, has posted pictures of his recently purchased set.

Gagaman also talks about the many fine details that the set offers in addition to using the maraca set with a handful of other Dreamcast games.

While a game like Mr. Driller played pretty well with the unique controller, I was disappointed to hear that the other great Dreamcast rhythm game, Space Channel 5, didn’t fare so well. Gagaman writes, “Maybe I was expecting too much for this game to work well with the maracas as well, after the grand success of playing the game with a DDR mat, but I had a go anyway. You could shoot fine, but the directions don’t work at all.”

Anyway, this set costs a good chunk of change, but maybe someday we will see a new Samba game on the Nintendo Wii as it should be a perfect fit with the motion-sensing controller.
