One the games we've been waiting for on the Wii since it was announced eons ago is Samba de Amigo, the revival of the Dreamcast classic. Amazon has posted the first live shots of the maracas attachments for the Wiimote and nunchuck, which are spicy red, just like the ones on the Dreamcast, pre-selling them for $15 with a Sept. 23 release. If you're getting the game, you should definitely pick up an extra pair for some multiplayer action. [Amazon via Wii Fanboy]
The only thing that bother me is...HOW IN HELL YOU USE MARACAS IN SAMBA?
There are no maracas in samba. Maracas are used on other latin-american ritmics...but I never heard on samba...acctualy, never seen on any brazilian songs.
Oh well...go figure.
