Electronic Arts on Wednesday formally unveiled Steven Spielberg's previously announced Wii puzzler, Boom Blox - for both younglings and the young at heart.

Boom Blox, the first of three original EA games being spearheaded by Spielberg, features 300 brain-busting levels, 30 semi-adorable characters, co-op and versus modes, and a custom level editor which can share designs over WiiConnect24.

"My inspiration for this game came while I was playing the Wii for the first time," said Spielberg. "BOOM BLOX plays on the enjoyment of building and knocking down blocks, something that can appeal innately to kids and adults of all ages."

Boom Blox is scheduled for a May 2008 release on Wii.

Spielberg is also working on an Xbox 360 and PS3 game rumored to be heavily inspired by 2001's cult-hit, Ico for PS2.
