This sounds amazing. EA’s announced Celebrity Sports Showdown for Wii, “an all-new intellectual property… currently in development at EA Canada and… the first Wii title to launch under the new EA Sports Freestyle brand.” From the release:

From the makers of EA Playground, Celebrity Sports Showdown features 12 outdoor sports games and is the ultimate party game to play with people of all ages. Play as your favorite celebrity such as Fergie and Avril Lavigne, and athletes like Paul Pierce and Mia Hamm to determine who will be the ultimate celebrity athlete. Get off the couch and get into the action with fun and easy-to-play controls designed specifically for the Wii.

No words needed. It’s out at the end of the year.
