The Samba De Amigo v.2000 Upgrade has been shown at the JAMMA Show, Including new modes and songs, and surprisingly, THIS NEW MONKEY GIRL! (which I'd bet alot of money for, that shes in because of the Love Love Mode, You Go Amigo!)

Here?s what?s new with ver. 2000: a bunch of new songs have been added into the mix (along with the original game?s selection of Samba melodies), and there are two new modes available from the select menu. The first new gameplay mode is ?Normal Mode? (the default system for the sequel), which introduces the practice of waving both maracas between two of the six positions. You?ll also need to make wide, circular sweeping motions with both maracas. Whenever you?re required to do this, the ?pose? icon pops up, and voices start chanting. This does an exceptional job of making the player look even sillier, and it gets my seal of approval.

The other addition is the Dreamcast version?s notorious ?Love-Love Mode,? which calculates the romantic compatibility between two players. This is specifically designed for young couples who frequent game centers (which are hot Tokyo dating spots ? really!), and is appallingly cute. To increase the game?s red-hot sexual tension, a new character has been dropped in ? a lovely girl monkey who plays the tambourine. Rrrowr.

And that?s about it. Ver. 2000 isn?t particularly earth-shattering, but the new songs and the maraca-waving challenges are fun enough to warrant getting addicted all over again ? and I had a blast playing it at the show. Let?s hope that this paves the road for future, fruitier endeavors from Sonic Team.
