Some random observations about this Samba de Amigo video, as shot at Sega's Gamersday event earlier this month:
  1. Gearbox, we're loving the maraca sound effects that emanate with each shake of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. Given the Wiimote's in-built speaker, this is a feature we'd have totally expected (and even the Dreamcast maracas managed this, albeit with a more low-tech solution), but it's still great to see it in action.
  2. New level ahoy! A fairground really does seem like the perfect place for a spot of maraca-shaking.
  3. It's been a while since this blogger recklessly coughed up $250 of his student loan for the Dreamcast version of the game, but one thing I don't recall is Amigo being entirely detached from the levels. On the Dreamcast, the maraca-wielding monkey would dance his way through each stage, his colorful entourage in tow. Here, he simply floats free of the levels. This seems like a fussy/picky point to raise, but we're very fussy/picky people. Especially when it comes to Sega stuff.
  4. It pleases us immensely to see the return of both Samba de Janeiro and bouncing scenery.
