Well looks like Sega decided to take advantage of "Sega Superstars Tennis" and are bringing some of their other Sega characters back into the game market. From the screenshots it looks like it is time to use the Wiimote and Nunchuck as maracas.

The title is an offense to Brazilians! The title is in Portuguese, about samba. Portuguese dance. And the environment in the game is Mexican.
