EA Montreal is set to get their groove on with Boogie, a music rhythm game only for the Wii. I have long enjoyed music based games like the old Frequency and Amplitude for the PS2 and I have even tried my hand, er feet at DDR but no one can beat the king of DDR, Bill Clinton (see previous article here) Plus I have been thinking lately that with the mechanics of the Wiimote there would come a time when we might see other peripherals that would attach to other parts of our body, like our feet, and utilize the same technology. Things like sword-fighting, fight games and even perhaps athletics or exercise games are not out of the question.

Boogie will have gamers dancing, singing and starring in their own music videos. Players can also choose and customize different characters in the game to best show off their dancing style and karaoke skills. With innovative gameplay that perfectly matches the unique Wii controls, Boogie is the ultimate videogame party package.

“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.”

I like it even though I could not carry a tune if it came with a wrist strap or climbed onto my back and held on for dear life.

Boogie is the latest addition to EA Montreal’s roster of high profile games including SSX Blur and ARMY OF TWO. SSX Blur is the newest version of the critically acclaimed snowboarding franchise that shipped exclusively for the Wii in February. EA Montreal is also working on ARMY OF TWO, the highly anticipated shooter and original intellectual property that will redefine strategic two-man cooperative play. The game was ranked at the top of the list in Electronic Gaming Monthly’s Top 50 Coolest New Games cover story in their August issue. ARMY OF TWO will be released for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system.

There is no firm release date for Boogie as of yet, but we do have several screen shots for it below.
