Natasha Bedingfield Lends Star Power As Spokesperson for EA’s Boogie SuperStar for Wii

August 27, 2008

The Casual Entertainment Label of Electronic Arts, Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) unleashes the star power behind its upcoming Boogie(TM) SuperStar game for Wii(TM) today with the announcement of international music sensation Natasha Bedingfield as the game’s featured spokesperson. Additionally, EA unveils the full Boogie SuperStar soundtrack including nearly 40 hit singles made famous by today’s hottest artists.

Bedingfield, who has topped the Billboard charts with number one singles and albums in both the U.S. and the U.K., has joined forces with EA to promote the game, which allows girls to perform their favorite Bedingfield songs including her current single “Angel,”"Love Like This,” and the title track from her new hit album Pocketful of Sunshine.

“Boogie SuperStar brings to life all the fun and excitement of performing,” said Bedingfield. “Being on stage is such a thrill and it’s great to be a part of an EA video game that lets girls experience how much fun it is to express themselves and explore their own creativity by performing.”

In Boogie SuperStar, players don’t just play along, they are the star of the game. Girls will have a blast belting their favorite tunes into the microphone, and performing real dance moves that are captured on screen using the Wii’s motion-sensing technology. The journey to stardom doesn’t have to be a solo! Girls can also sing and dance with their friends or against them in fun competitions that show-off their singing and dancing talent.

“Boogie SuperStar represents a new level in the convergence of games and music,” said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive for Music and Marketing. “EA has combined the very best game interactive capabilities of the Wii technology and the Boogie brand to form an unprecedented soundtrack with the hottest new tracks made famous by the biggest artists in the world today. We’ve been actively involved in Natasha’s career since its inception, and we’re proud to have a star like her actively involved.”

Featuring nearly 40 of today’s hottest tracks plus additional tracks for an International version, Boogie SuperStar will have girls bursting with excitement as they discover they can both sing and dance to their favorite songs in one game. The North American version of the game will also feature four hidden tracks — each can be unlocked with a code provided by four major retailers.

Boogie SuperStar global song list featured in both North America and International versions of game includes:
