EA Blogger's Day - Part 1

This year, I found people speaking Simlish at the Electronic Arts’ Blogger’s Day event in Redwood City, California.

One of several highlights was the Simlish recording session segment. This entertaining Simlish language, which debuted in the 1996 game SimCopter, continues in various Sim game series including MySims Agents (releasing September 29, 2009 on Nintendo DS and Wii) and The Sims3 World Adventures expansion pack (releasing in November 2009).

Simlish remains a very creative and entertaining idea that saves EA immense translation costs every year. Nelly Furtado even does some Simlish songs for the World Adventures expansion. Excellent!

Look for more EA videos and special previews coming soon!
