Sonic the Hedgehog Songs Will Be in Samba de Amigo: Party Central

Sega announced a crossover will appear in the new Samba de Amigo game. When people get Samba de Amigo: Party Central, they’ll also be able to play two songs from Sonic the Hedgehog games. One is Sonic Adventure 2’s “Escape from the City,” while the other is Sonic Forces’ “Fist Bump.” Sonic will also make a cameo in one stage.

Sega noted that both the songs and and stage will be included in the base game. This means people won’t need to grab them later as post-launch DLC. The stage will be inspired by Sonic Adventure 2, and the screenshot shows Amigo playing maracas alongside Sonic.

This isn’t the first time Sonic appeared in a Samba de Amigo game. As a reminder, in a past one Sonic would appear alongside Amigo on a Green Hill Zone-inspired stage.

For a reminder of how the Sonic the Hedgehog songs sounds, the official Sonic YouTube account uploaded variants of boths songs in the past. First, here’s the Sonic Forces theme “Fist Bump.” It is exactly as it appears in the game.

While Sega’s official account didn’t upload the original “Escape from the City” from Sonic Adventure 2, there is a Funk RMX version performed by Persona 5 singer Lyn Inaizumi. It was part of the Sonic Sessions series.

Samba de Amigo: Party Central will launch on the Nintendo Switch in Summer 2023.
