Press release

Electronic Arts announced today that SSX Blur developed exclusively for Nintendo Wii is the newest version of the critically acclaimed snowboarding franchise. The huge air, blurring speed and insane tricks that SSX is known for return and the fun-factor is amplified by the unique capability of the Nintendo Wii controller. The game is in development by EA Montreal under the EA SPORTS BIG brand, and will be in store across North America and Europe in March 2007.

“We wanted to take the soul of the franchise—the air, the speed, the tricks, the fun—and Wii-ify it,” said Alex Hyder, producer on the product. “You’re going to see that reflected in the On-the-Ground & In-the-Air controls, the characters, the user interface, and every other aspect of this game.”

SSX Blur is everything you expect from the franchise, delivered in a totally unexpected way. Revolutionary controls take full advantage of the Wii’s potential by putting you in total command of your skier or rider, on-the-ground & in-the-air, by translating every motion you make into the skills that create mountain legends.

It was a worry for me when the wii was first anounced that big companies wouldnt jump on it like the ps3 or xbox 360 but its looking like the wii is gonna have a rosy future :D
The future is bright, the future is covered in Wii.(yellow)
This is typical of EA, lots of talk and not much content.

Still anyone jumping on the bandwagon is good.
