Rehearse your moves before the party starts.

Samba de Amigo: Party Central for Nintendo Switch will be kicking off the festivities on August 29th. If you’re already in the mood to party, however, a demo is now available to hold you over…provided it’s a party in the U.S.A.

Nintendo Switch players in North America can access the demo on the Nintendo eShop. The demo will allow single-players to access the pop songs “Shake Senora (featuring T-Pain and Sean Paul)” by Pitbull and “TiK ToK” by Kesha. European players will be able to access the demo later this month.

Of course, if you like what you see (and hear), pre-orders are now open for both the standard ($39.99) and deluxe ($49.99) editions. Those who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition on the Nintendo eShop will receive the following in-game items on top of the standard edition of the game:

  • The Sonic the Hedgehog Music Pack that includes fan-favorite tracks such as “Open Your Heart” from Sonic Adventure™, “Reach For The Stars (Re-Colors)” from Sonic Colors™: Ultimate, and “I’m Here” from Sonic Frontiers™.
  • The SEGA Music Pack (available on September 27, 2023) that features popular tracks from SEGA’s historic roster of franchises: “Baka Mitai (Taxi Driver Edition),” “Go Go Cheer Girl!” from Space Channel 5™: Part 2, and “Rhythm Thief Theme” from Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure™.
  • Special costumes and accessories from Sonic the Hedgehog™, Space Channel 5, Super Monkey Ball™, and Puyo Puyo™.

As for the game itself, Samba de Amigo: Party Central allows players to use Joy-Con as maracas while dancing to 40 hit songs from the world’s most popular genres, with even more song arriving as post-launch DLC. More specifically:

  • Groove with your friends and family with different party modes.
  • Complete the StreamiGo! challenges to help Amigo rise to fame.
  • Strut that style by customizing your character with unique costumes and accessories.
  • Take the party to a global level by hitting the floor with 12 Amigos and up to 8 of your friends online in World Party Mode.
  • Show the world what you’ve got by competing on the online leaderboards.
