About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Electronic Arts today announced that Madden NFL 07 is being custom-designed for Nintendo's next-gen console, Wii. Using the console's unique remote to pass, kick, snap, throw, catch and run, players will interact with the game in an entirely new way. Boasting massive gameplay innovations inspired by the motion sensor of the remote, Madden NFL 07 maximizes the power and unique design of the game system.

Madden NFL 07 will be on display at the upcoming E3 in Los Angeles, May 10-12, 2006. Additional titles currently under development will be announced in the coming months.

EA Canada has assembled a team of talented, experienced designers who are dedicated exclusively to developing games for Wii. The development team is incubating new gameplay ideas that are native to the platform.

"Nintendo is breaking new ground with Wii. The brilliance of their innovation is inspiring and we have dedicated ourselves to developing outstanding new play experiences for the platform," said John Schappert, Senior Vice President and Group Studio General Manager, EA. "Deploying resources against a single platform in this manner is a new approach for us -- but it is the right approach."

Schappert added, "Madden NFL 07 is a Wii original. You may have played a football game in the past, but you've never played a game like this before."
