EA Gets Boogie Woogie Fever For Wii

March 22, 2007

Electronic Arts has announced a new IP, Boogie, in development at EA Montreal exclusively for the Wii. Set for release later this year, Boogie is described as “a unique music/rhythm-based game that takes advantage of the innovative Wii controls to get gamers off their couch, playing and dancing to a new beat.” Are they calling us lazy?

Apparently based on the release issued announcing the game, Boogie will involve “gamers dancing, singing and starring in their own music videos.” Players can also choose and customize different characters in the game, which will emphasize both dancing and karaoke skills (or lack thereof).

“We’re creating something new and different for gamers of all ages to enjoy; the complete party package where gamers can dance as well as sing,” said Alain Tascan, Vice President and General Manager, EA Montreal. “Nintendo’s Wii is an amazing console that really gives us a platform to be creative and to re-think traditional game development.”
