The Mountain Is Your Playground With SSX Blur
The soul of SSX remixed, re-energized and fully realized
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – December 6, 2006 – Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) 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 ship to retailers 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.
SSX Blur will be available for the Nintendo Wii in March 2007. The game has a 3+ PEGI rating. It is not yet rated by the ESRB. Press can download a video trailer of the game at http://info.ea.com.
