After being revealed at the jam-packed Nintendo Direct showcase back in February, Samba de Amigo: Party Central has spent the ensuing months without a firm release date outside of 'Summer 2023'. However, SEGA has today shaken things up as it announced that the game would be boogying over to Switch on 29th August.
This entry in the musical maraca series features tracks from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise as well as a brand new playlist of contemporary pop songs headlined by Ariana Grande (you can check out the full track list here).
In preparation for the game's release this summer, SEGA has also announced that pre-orders for digital editions of the title are now available via the Switch eShop. Yes, we said editions with an intentional plural there as aside from the standard version of the game which can now be pre-ordered for £34.99, there will also be a Digital Deluxe Edition available for £44.99.
This special edition adds in the 'Sonic Music DLC' pack (including the likes of 'Open Your Heart' from Sonic Adventure and 'I'm Here' from Sonic Frontiers), the 'SEGA Music DLC' pack which contains a number of other songs from the studio's history and a series of special costumes from the Sonic, Space Channel 5, Super Monkey Ball and Puyo Puyo series.
Both editions are now available to order from the Switch eShop prior to the game's official release in late August.
Will you be picking up Samba de Amigo: Party Central? Let us know in the comments.
Never got around to play the original, hoping for a demo
Another Dreamcast legend graces new consoles and finds home on Nintendo.
Now... Where is Vyse?
Collabs with other Sega franchises will help this game, I say. Not that Samba can’t stand on his own, but most of the track list for the base game is just stuff that’s popular today
I guess. I don’t know 95% of those songs
Oh YESSSS...will 100% be picking this up, as i LOVED the previous 2 games, so much fun!
I would prefer physical though, also hoping we get the original soundtrack songs..La Bamba, Take on me, hot hot hot etc...that was the BEST game soundtrack ever!
@TheBigBlue - Perfect time for Nintendo to chip in and get some good music from Switch games, honestly.
Hmm.. August..? I dunno.
... might still have Zelda:TotK permanently loaded.
Suddenly I raised my awareness when I saw SEGA music pack because I don't want to see musics from their rated M SEGA games. 🤨
Enough is enough.
Don't ruin kids games with references from rated M stuffs.
@Paraka out here asking the real questions.
The cover of that game has such a dark tone. Never played a game of this series, but it seems interesting.
I really like your new profile picture.
I went looking for latin music on the tracklist and was disappointed.
I don't think that tracklist is complete. It would be a crime not to include Samba De Janeiro or Bamboleo.
Is the amount of hype that this game seems to be getting at all reflective of the demand for it?
@Anti-Matter lmao where do you come up with this stuff? What M rated sega music is being put into an E for everyone game?
SEGA already did from MaiMai Arcade, SEGA Racing All Stars.
And it raised my concern.
Yeah no, not cancelling my discounted physical preorder to buy a more expensive "digital deluxe edition".
If SEGA will have the decency to release the extra content as separate DLC for those buying only the base game either physical or digital like Square Enix did for Theatrhythm Final Bar Line then I'll gladly take it, if not their loss.
