    EA and Steven Spielberg Announce Boom Blox 2

    The follow-up to last year's hit, fully titled "Boom Blox Bash Party," is set to ship this Spring.
    by Lucas M. Thomas

    January 28, 2009 - There's another explosive experience on the way for Wii in 2009, as publisher Electronic Arts and famed film director Steven Spielberg have announced that 2008's hit Boom Blox will soon be seeing a sequel -- Boom Blox Bash Party. A Reuters report on the announcement has said we can expect it soon, too, with a release window given as Spring of this year.

    Boom Blox Bash Party will follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, which based its gameplay on exploiting explosives and a realistic physics engine to solve puzzles and topple huge towers of Jenga-like building blocks. The sequel is planned to expand on the original with over 400 fresh levels to tackle, and an increased focus on multiplayer play.

    "Boom Blox Bash Party is a wild social gaming experience," Spielberg said. "We know families and friends really enjoyed playing the original Boom Blox together, so we designed more explosive multiplayer experiences with Boom Blox Bash Party."

    Players of the first Boom Blox who've been addicted to the game's level creator will also be pleased to know that Bash Party will expand that mode as well, taking it further into the online realm of Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connection. The first Boom Blox allowed you to trade your levels with friends, but users will now additionally be able to download new levels straight from the designers at Electronic Arts, as well as challenges created by other Bash Party players from around the globe. Have a fantastically fun stage you've just engineered? Upload it via Wi-Fi and let the whole world enjoy it.

    Stay tuned to IGN Wii for more information on Boom Blox Bash Party, and, in the meanwhile, consider brushing up on your Wii Remote bomb-tossing skills.

    Yeah i just seen this on IGN! I am really happy to hear this! And EA will be making new levels to download. Totally Awesome!!!

    Doubt MotionPlus support seeing that Wii Sports Resort is the first game to use it and is a Q2 release~ But it would have been nice i agree.

    Im betting BoomBlox Bash Party will be out before that...

    Just found out, this is the game that will not be using friendcodes. I had a hunch that it was going to be another EA game (since they did it with MoH:H2).
