SSX Blur Exclusive To Wii

Posted by Anthony Dickens

EA have released the high resolution trailer and a snippet of information about its upcoming snowboard sequel, SSX Blur.

Developed once again by EA Montreal, part of the EA Sports BIG label, SSX Blur will be built exclusively for Wii utilising the control system that can only be offered by the Wiimote.

"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."

EA revealed little about the content of the game, but we'd expect it to fit much closer to the Tricky mold than On Tour.

"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."

EA have stated that the game is scheduled for release in March 2007 in North America, not that far away.

Here's the video, but remember you can download the high resolution (100mb) video from EA.

I like the idea of the wiimote as a snowboard. You can time those jumps perfectly by jolting the mote up. Hopefully the game will bring something new to the genre other than the control scheme.
