No more rumors: Samba De Amigo for the Wii announced

You know all of those rumors about Samba De Amigo coming to the Wii? Remember when it appeared on a bunch of retailers releases lists and, while some of you thought it was a great idea, you blew it off? Hi!

Sega has announced today that Samba De Amigo is coming back to town, this time exclusively for the Wii. Players will use the remote and nunchuck like maracas, in a game that will likely be extremely similar to the original, only with an updated song list, and other special features. Sega promises that more information (including a full song listing) will be revealed over the next few months.

Samba De Amigo for the Wii is being developed by Gearbox Software, and is set to release in the Spring of 2008. Time to put those Dreamcast maracas on eBay.
