Samba de Amigo: Party Central reveals new DLC details

Here are the DLC packs that are coming to Samba de Amigo: Party Central.

Ahead of the game’s release this week, SEGA shared new details about the upcoming DLC packs for Samba de Amigo: Party Central.

Party Central is an upcoming motion-based rhythm game by SEGA that’s coming to the Nintendo Switch. Though this might seem like an entirely new IP from SEGA, this is actually a sequel to the original Samba de Amigo game which was released back in 1999 for the Dreamcast.

Specifically, there are two initial batches, the first of which will be released on the game’s launch day. But in total, there will be eight music packs planned.
