We're honored to be partnering with a company that has been synonymous with childhood creativity for more than a century to bring a classic piece of American culture to an entirely new medium."

Two years after acquiring the rights to the Dave Mirra franchise, Dave Mirra BMX Challenge has been announced for the Wii. In the series' first console title since 2002, BMX Challenge will feature Wii-specific motion controls and game modes.
