The Hollywood Reporter brings the welcome news that last year's best Wii game (unless you count Okami), EA's action-puzzler Boom Blox, will get a sequel as soon as spring this year.

Boom Blox Bash Party will offer Wii owners "increased multiplayer action and more than 400 new levels that take players from underwater into outer space", according to the report. It will also offer online multiplayer, and additional levels available as downloadable content - for a fee, naturally.

Electronic Arts has told Eurogamer that Boom Blox, the Steven Spielberg-developed game for Wii, will be released in Europe on May 9th.

Boom Blox is a cute and colourful effort which involves throwing blocks around, building structures and blasting them apart. You can also "remix" any level in the game and share your design online.

"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."
