The new title, Boogie Superstar, will allow girls across the world to perform today's popular music and become a virtual star.

EA announced yesterday that the singing and dancing Wii title Boogie is going to receive a sequel: Boogie Superstar. Unlike the original Boogie, Superstar is aimed squarely at girls and will feature more current music as opposed to a mix of current and classic songs.

Boogie Superstar is set to feature over 40 songs from artists such as Rihanna, Fergie, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Leona Lewis, Alicia Keys, Good Charlotte, Britney Spears, and Kanye West. International versions of the game will feature another 30 songs from popular local artists such as Melissa M from France, Monrose from Germany, Finley from Italy, and Fito y Fitipaldis from Spain. Similar to the first Boogie game, players will sing and dance to the included songs and are scored based on performance without any rigid rules.

Players will be able to create their own on-screen superstar with the player creation mode as well as play with up to 3 other friends.

Boogie Superstar will be available for the Wii this October in both Euope and North America.

EA DELIVERS A VIP PASS TO STARDOM WITH BOOGIE SUPERSTAR FOR WII

New Sing and Dance Game Lets Girls Perform Today's Hottest Music to Become a Star

Guildford, UK June 26, 2008 – For any girl who has ever dreamed of being a star, the Casual Entertainment Label of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) brings future stars one step closer today with the announcement of Boogie™ SuperStar. Combining the hottest music hits from around the world with the coolest dance moves and total character customisation, Boogie SuperStar provides girls the ultimate gaming experience: to sing and dance their way to superstardom! Exclusively for the Wii™, Boogie SuperStar will be available in North America and Europe October 2008, and in Asia in the following months.

Boogie SuperStar features more than 40 songs made famous by popular artists such as Rihanna, Fergie, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Leona Lewis, Alicia Keys, Good Charlotte, Britney Spears, Kanye West, and more. Another 30 songs will be available on International versions of the game, allowing players to perform songs from local artists including Melissa M (France), Monrose (Germany), Finley (Italy) and Fito y Fitipaldis (Spain). The star power behind Boogie SuperStar doesn’t stop there. EA will soon reveal the game’s featured artist—a chart-topping, global music sensation who will help promote Boogie SuperStar.

"Boogie SuperStar promotes self-expression, creativity and empowerment for girls worldwide," said Robert Nashak, VP of Casual Studios, EA Casual Entertainment. "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."

In Boogie SuperStar, players don't just play along, they are the star of the game. Girls will have a blast belting their favorite tunes into the microphone, and performing real dance moves that are captured on screen using the Wii's motion-sensing technology. The journey to stardom doesn’t have to be a solo! With two- and four-player modes, girls can play with their friends sing and dance with their friends or against them in fun competitions that show-off their singing and dancing talent!

Players begin the game by customising their character, choosing from millions of possible combinations to create a performer that is as unique as they are. They are then "discovered" and whisked away to an island where they learn what it takes to be a star. While on the island, players build their singing and dancing skills, performing in posh environments fit for a rising star, including a studio, a poolside stage, a breath-taking terrace, and a yacht. Once performance skills are perfected, girls are ready to perform for a panel of judges in the ultimate competition, the Boogie Star Show! Only the best and the brightest will be able to outshine the competition to become a Boogie SuperStar!

Developed at EA Montreal under the EA Casual Entertainment Label, Boogie SuperStar has not yet been rated by PEGI. For more information, visit http://www.boogiesuperstar.ea.com.

It only allows girls to perform today's popular music and become a virtual star? Damn, it! What if I put on a sexy skirt and some mascara?

You can be the internet ManDiva.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO

I'm doing my best to resist morbid curiousity... I actually owned the first Boogie...for about 4 hours.

That statement procludes you from reviewing it.  I think Jon needs to review it, he avoids this sort of thing.

But I have hands-on experience with the original! That's a qualifier, not a disqualifier!

But you BOUGHT it man!  That shows a strong lack of judgement.

Well, if you can do drag, more power to you.

This just reminds me that US shores will probably never see Idolm@ster. Maybe that's for the better.
Hmm... I wonder if an Idolm@ster Wii would sell.

It would help bring in more otaku.

EA Exec 1: Boogie wasn't very good. Should we improve it for the sequel?
EA Exec 2: Nah, just market it to girls. They won't notice that it sucks.

I can and will, thank you. I don't think I need to have an excuse as lame as Boogie though. Maybe I just like to feel pretty on occasion? ;)
