K-Pop finds its groove in Samba de Amigo: Party Central

Conscription into the South Korean Army can’t stop BTS from partying with Samba! The on hiatus K-Pop group will be contributing 2 songs to the upcoming K-pop music pack that will be released on September 27th, nearly a month after the party starts for the title on August 29th. Dynamite and Permission to Dance will join FIFTY FIFTY’s Cupid as the songs you’ll be able to shake it to in the latest iteration of the quirky rhythm game.

If K-Pop music isn’t your cup of tea (I certainly wouldn’t say that…but there’s some people that are like that! Please don’t hurt me!), the game will offer other add-ons featuring a variety of other musical genres, such as the Japanese Music Pack featuring artists like Eve, Ken Matsudaira and GUMI. However if you only care about video game music, the Sonic the Hedgehog and SEGA music packs might be up your alley, the later featuring the infamously meme-y Baka Mitai from the Like a Dragon Series. Each pack individually will cost $4.99, but owners of the digital deluxe version of the title will nab both SEGA music packs as part of their purchase.

Samba de Amigo: Party Central will launch exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on August 29th. What a fun way to close out the summer!
