In other recent game soundtrack news, Sega has announced the full lineup of songs featured in Samba De Amigo, freshly penciled in for a September 23rd ship date on Wii. Samba‘s soundtrack consists of 40+ songs in two flavors — returning favorites from the original Dreamcast game and new tracks exclusive to the Wii. Expect to shack your maracas (aka Wii Remote and Nunchuk) to appropriate tunes such as Livin’ La Vida Loca, Macarena, La Bamba, Mambo No. 5, Hot Hot Hot and Smooth, among many others. But that’s not all. Sega has also revealed that Samba De Amigo will be the first retail Wii game to offer downloadable content in the form of three-track song packs, the first of which will contain Mambo Mambo, I Want Candy and Are you Going to Be My Girl and be available for an undisclosed price on launch day.

On the jump you’ll find the song list in full and a new trailer. Also note that all tracks marked with an * are performed by a cover band, not the real artist. All songs released as DLC will be the original master tracks.
