First Wii-exclusive rhythm game

Game industry site Gamasutra has a brief write up about EA Montreal’s (of SSX Blur fame) new Wii-exclusive rhythm game “Boogie.” Details are slim but based on the screen shot and article it seems that the games focus will be dancing with the Wii remote and nunchuck, as well as creating a custom character to show off your moves. While the cartoonish disco guy in the screenshot does look fun and well rendered, I keep wondering why developers keep laboriously creating custom character creation systems when one is already built into the Wii. I don’t know about you but I want to see my Miis dance.
