After what feels like far too long an absence, it's all go-go-go in the world of Samba de Amigo. Not only is Sega's beloved rhythm-action series getting outings on Switch and Meta Quest soon, it'll be launching onto mobile via Apple Arcade this month.

More specifically, Apple's gaming subscription service is getting a version of the maraca-shaking classic called Samba de Amigo: Party-To-Go, which arrives on 29th August - the same day Samba de Amigo: Party Central launches on Switch.

Party-To-Go will feature 40 songs when it arrives in August, with more to follow after launch. There's no complete track list to peruse yet, but Sega's official announcement says it'll feature three songs exclusive to the Apple Arcade game: Daddy (feat. CL) by Psy, Lady Gaga's The Edge of Glory, and The Walker from Fitz and the Tantrums.

And that's not the only Apple Arcade exclusive feature either; Samba de Amigo: Party-To-Go also features the series' first-ever Story Mode, which, according to today's announcement, will see players joining Amigo on a quest reclaim music.

Alongside Samba de Amigo: Party-To-Go, this month's Apple Arcade offerings include cats-and-cushions puzzler Nekograms+, arriving on 11th August, kingdom constructor Kingdoms: Merge & Build (18th August), and minimalist 2D puzzler Finity (25th August).
