Game Trivia:

  • When playing with the Maracas Controller, a Standard Controller (with VMU) is required to save. The Maracas Controller has no VMU port.
  • Is the only game released in the U.S. to officially utilize the maracas controller. Though other games can technically be played with the special peripheral, it's also true that monkeys might fly out of my butt.
  • Features several popular songs such as "Tubthumper" and "Take on Me."
  • Several different maraca controller sets were available for use with this game. The official one is generally considered the best, but is perhaps the most difficult to find, as it was only produced in limited quantities. "Off-brand" sets are also available, though they are often less accurate.
