Redwood City (CA) - Electronic Arts announced today that its collection of mini-games for the Wii will debut in the US near the end of October.

Playground is one of EA's first Wii exclusives, containing a series of mini-games in a party game setting.  It's similar to Nintendo's first-party title Wii Play, which has been a top seller in the US for multiple months in a row.

Over a dozen mini-games are included in Playground, such as Dodgeball, Paper Racers, Dart Shootout, Slot Car Racing, and Tetherball.

Playground will be available October 23 with a retail price of around $50.
