SEGA has recently announced that the highly anticipated release of Samba de Amigo: Party Central, the latest installment in the beloved Samba de Amigo franchise originally developed by Sonic Team, will be postponed to August 29th, 2023. The delay is attributed to the inclusion of a Digital Deluxe version, which will feature an array of exciting Sonic-themed costumes and music, alongside other iconic SEGA IPs.
The Digital Deluxe Edition includes:
- Sonic the Hedgehog music DLC pack: Featuring tracks such as “Open Your Heart,” “Reach for the Stars (Re-Colors),” and “I’m Here.”
- Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails costumes: Dress up your characters in the iconic outfits of Sonic and his loyal sidekick, Tails.
- Costumes and accessories from Space Channel 5, Super Monkey Ball, and PuyoPuyo.
- Additional music from SEGA fan-favorites, including Space Channel 5, RGG Studio, and Rhythm Thief (to be available after the game’s launch).
