Samba heading to Wii?

Official Nintendo mag says so.

SEGA has hidden its maracas and remained quiet over rumours that rhythm action game Samba de Amigo is heading to Wii.

Supposed confirmation of the title spilled from the pages of US (official) magazine Nintendo Power, which said we could expect the game next year.

It went on to name Gearbox Software (of Brother's in Arms fame) as the developer, and outlined plans to use the Wiimote and Nunchuk as the famous maraca peripherals.

Samba de Amigo was released for Dreamcast in Europe back in 2000. The idea was to shake your maracas at different heights or strike poses in time with the bottom-shaking music.

If you did well, the scene around your dancing monkey on-screen would fill with onlookers revelling in your beats. Fail, however, and chimp-chops would get popped in the back of a lorry and shipped of to some faraway country to test out Timotei. Maybe.

We'll let you know more when we do.
