For a while, we've been hearing
that EA planned to support the Balance Board in the sequel
to their rhythm game Boogie.
According to Cubed3, NGamer
magazine is reporting that this functionality has been confirmed for Boogie Superstar
, possibly to add difficulty for toddlers
. What is interesting is that, if NGamer's description of the game as a "board-based dance-a-thon" is accurate, Balance Board support may be more
than just an optional extra.
It's no surprise that EA
is supporting the new controller: their recently-announced Skate It
simulates a skateboard with the Board, and there's some kind of exercise game
on the way that will use it extensively. But if EA really is building a sequel to an existing (if somewhat unloved) franchise that requires
$90 hardware the previous game didn't, they must really like
Wii Fit money
the Balance Board.
