EA has announced that Boogie, the first all singing, all dancing karaoke title for the Wii, will be released on August 7. The game will ship with a microphone attachment and will feature new versions of music made famous by The Jackson 5, Kool & The Gang, M.C. Hammer, The Village People, Cyndi Lauper and Britney Spears.
"We have assembled a great selection of music for the game that will appeal to players of all ages, making this dancing and karaoke game the ultimate party package for the entire family," said Alain Tascan, Vice President and General Manager, EA Montreal. "Wii is expanding videogames to untapped markets pulling in a new audience of gamers that typically did not play games in the past; Boogie will give these diverse players something new to enjoy as well as share with their friends and family."
Meanwhile, Shacknews has confirmed that Half-Life 2: The Orange Box, another EA-published title, will ship for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 9. Valve previously promised Half-Life 2 would receive "frequent" episodic updates, but this release date ensures that over 15 months will pass between the release of Episode One and Two.
We'll have more on Half-Life 2: The Orange Box and Boogie very soon.
