It's try, try again for EA and Steven Spielberg tonight, with the publisher announcing BOOM BLOX Bash Party for the Wii, due sometime this Spring.


Coming so soon after the first game, Bash Party's focus is on polishing the experience and offering new features, such as new blocks, new tools, new actions, new multiplayer modes and new characters.

Most inspiring of the additions, however, is the introduction of user-generated DLC, with players promised the ability to download and rate new levels from both EA and other users.

Steven Spielberg is excited:

Boom Blox Bash Party is a wild social gaming experience. 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.

He's excited, we're (kinda) excited too.

I would be terribly more excited if Capcom announced 'Zak & Wiki 2: Zack Strikes Back!'. Still, and even if it is another party game, I admit that I love the original 'Boom Blox' and its a game that has had a very high multiplayer time spend around my Wii, so I will surely pick this one up, too. DLC? As long as it's not payed DLC, im also up for that... if I can find the storage space to support it, of course.
