EA's Casual Entertainment label has officially announced Boom Blox for Wii, the first title developed in a previously-detailed collaboration between EA and director-producer Steven Spielberg and slated for a May 2008 release. A mobile version of the title is also in production for Spring 2008. Boom Blox is a family-friendly puzzler featuring over three hundred levels, thirty characters designed to be wacky and entertaining, and an in-game editor that lets players remix any level of the game. In addition to the existing Tiki, Medieval, Frontier, and Haunted themed environments, players can unlock additional elements through gameplay with which to build their own environments. Player-created levels can be shared with and played by friends online. Said Spielberg, "I am a gamer myself, and I really wanted to create a video game that I could play with my kids,” said Steven Spielberg. “Boom Blox features an enormous amount of fun challenges and cool scenarios for your kids to solve or for you to master together.”
