In other news we get our dance on as what may be a prototype controller for Samba De Amigo has been seen. Here is the news byte from IGN DC:

Samba De Amigo's Japanese release is close at hand, and Sega of Japan has begun the hype machine. Our Japanese correspondent ran into this on the 4th floor of a Japanese Sega arcade:

At first glance, that looks like it may very well be the maracas-style controllers set for use with the Dreamcast version of Samba De Amigo. Actually, this is an unfinished version of the hardware which makes use of the arcade maracas. Still, we expect the Dreamcast version to look nearly identical.

We'll be back with more on the game as its release nears.
