Electronic Arts has announced Boogie SuperStar, a Wii-exclusive follow-up to its Boogie rhythm party game released for the Wii, Nintendo DS, and PlayStation 2. The title will debut in North America and Europe on October 2008, shipping in Asia in the following months.
Published under EA's Casual Entertainment label and developed by EA Montreal (Army of Two, SSX Blur), Boogie SuperStar hopes to attract female gamers with millions of customization combinations for their characters. Players will compete by singing with the bundled microphone and dancing with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk in front of a panel of judges.
In addition to a solo mode, Boogie SuperStar provides two-player and four-player modes for playing with their friends or competing against them in singing and dancing competitions.
The Boogie sequel will feature over 40 songs from popular artists such as Katy Perry, Leona Lewis, Kanye West, and more. An additional 30 songs will be available on international versions of the game, including local artists such as Melissa M (France), Monrose (Germany), Finley (Italy), and Fito y Fitipaldis (Spain). EA also plans to soon reveal a "chart-topping, global music sensation" as its featured artists and game promoter.
Said EA Casual Entertainment VP Robert Nashak: "Boogie SuperStar promotes self-expression, creativity and empowerment for girls worldwide. We have created a game where girls don't just observe someone else's rise to fame, they experience it themselves, singing and dancing their way through a world most girls only dream about."
