Sexy Poker Headed to WiiWare

Posted by Corbie Dillard

It seems the WiiWare service just got a little sexier

According to the German USK ratings service, Gameloft's Sexy Poker title is headed to Nintendo's WiiWare service.

As you might imagine, the game is basically a video game version of strip poker. The female players place bets using their own clothing instead of money.

Since Nintendo is quite well-known as being the "family-friendly" console, we don't see much chance of this title ever making it to North America. Of course Nintendo has been trying to change their "kiddy" image as of late, so maybe this is one extreme they're going to in an effort to change it permanently. We seriously doubt it.

It will be interesting to see which regions, if any, actually receive this title. I agree that it's unlikely though.



Adam said:

Ok, seriously, this doesn't belong on WiiWare. Any adult would -- or should -- be extremely embarrassed to own something this pathetic (I mean, seriously, if you can access WiiWare, you can access the internet... there are better places to go for pretty pictures of pretty ladies............. trust me ). The only real audience for this is the youth, who Nintendo certainly don't want to see targeted with anything Sexy.



Will said:

I agree with you Adam, its just a little out of place here. Dont get me wrong, I looooooove the ladies, but they DO NOT BELONG IN THE NEWSROOM!!! ah, I MEAN MY DSi!!



theblackdragon said:

lol, wow

that screenshot, though, looks more like it belongs on DSiware than Wiiware... i mean come on, there's no anti-aliasing at all. :/



Bass_X0 said:

Looks to me like the only news here is the listing and that the screenshot is from the cell phone version.

The Wii version will probably feature badly designed overly cheesy and not at all sexy polygonal women.



Corbs said:

That is not a WiiWare screenshot. I believe that's from the mobile phone game, if I'm not mistaken.



Token_Girl said:

10 year old boys everywhere rejoice? I don't see how this isn't a kiddie game, seeing as anyone over....we'll say thirteen to be conservative is downloading whatever looks interesting on limewire or bittorrent or whatever the kids these days are getting their porn from for free. Bring on the NA release.



Corbs said:

I don't think there are even any WiiWare screenshots in existence yet. And as was stated, this is not likely to see a release in North America.



Andor said:

I can't stop laughing at the girl's face and that ridiculous baloon lol



Omega said:

Yeah, this is a typical Nintendo-approved game. It helps the whole family to come together. Everybody can create his/her own Mii and use it as player in the game. And what's more fun than playing a card game?



MarkyVigoroth said:

NOOOO! Keep it away!
**I become the target of "Tingle's Ruppeland"-like battles from women-hungry Ken-boys here**



Kaeobais said:

Dear lord. The amish hell. Nudity AND electronics.

Anyways, this just doesn't make sense. I want more adult oriented games on wii, but this is just too far. And stupid. As someone else already stated, if you can access this game, you can access the internetz.



Adam said:

She seems sad.
...I wonder if there's something I could do to cheer her up?
Oh gosh, just ban me now.



Digiki said:

OMG insta-buy, I hope it has aplosions! cuz then it would be the best game ever!




MrPanic said:

They thought this through though, probably many 14 year old boys want to see girls but can't cause their parents will know when using the pc for that. Desperate as they are, they will buy this, no one will notice cause the Wii is save, so they think.

Of course, this will never release, lol.



The_Fox said:

I say Nintendo should go full on with mature games and release Princess Peach does the Mushroom Kingdom. Now THAT would get rid of the kiddy stigma.



y2josh said:

It isn't full nudity, I bought this game one lonely drunk night and was so pissed off when I realized they didnt strip all the way down. They just take their clothes off til they get down to a skimpy bathing suit or sexy lingerie that really isnt too revealing. It is kind of sad that I bought and know this



IAmNotWill said:

wow. i think i have a reason to buy a euro wii, lol. (if you actually beleive me, your nuts.)



Hardy83 said:

Nintendo is trying to change their kiddie image? LOLOLOL
They're doing a s$%^&&* job of it...You know, since they didn't bring Disaster: Day of Crisis or Fatal Frame over here... Nor do they encourage or help companies with games like Fragile to import their games.. Ya. Really changing that image.



Jolted85 said:

sounds like something that would come from Japan, as they like that sort of stuff



KDR_11k said:

Rather than speculate how explicit it is shouldn't we look at the rating it got? That part seems to be missing in this article.



Big_A2 said:

I had a look at the site and it looks like it got a "Freigegeben ab 16 Jahren gemäß § 14 JuSchG" (Restricted for those below the age of 16).



MickEiA said:

hello hello lol it would be better if the texas hold em update came along this will be one of the worst selling wiiware



KDR_11k said:

A2: Hm, I recall Singles getting rated 16 and that had full nudity including visible gentials IIRC.



jhuhn said:

I do see it in Europe as a 16+ rating by PEGI if they do rate it. A North America release is unlikely, but it is reated by ESRB, it will definitely be rated M for mature.



y2josh said:


Like I said in my post above, there is no actual private areas exposed. None of the women ever take off their bikini or underwear. I'd say a T in America if it were to come here. I personally don't want it to come here though because it is just plain horrible, very very short to. The only reason i bought it was to see naked cartoon women and didnt even get that...



Golgo said:

This takes me back...Sam Fox Strip Poker on the C64.
Ah, those were the days.
Astonishingly, the lady in the screenshot looks even more pixellated than Ms. Fox of yore!



Wiiloveit said:

Hmm... if only there was a chance of them taking everything off... or being real people, for that matter. Since this offers neither, I choose to stick two fingers up at both Nintendo and Gameloft.



RadioShadow said:

"Rather than speculate how explicit it is shouldn't we look at the rating it got? That part seems to be missing in this article."

No one cares about that part. Heck I don't even know how to play poker. XD

At the end of the day, it's a phone port and that is what the Wii Ware DOESN'T NEED.



Sean_Aaron said:

Playing a card game on the Wii leaves me cold; I think the PC Engine port of Wonder Momo is a bit more risque than this...



MasterHenry said:


100% agree.
And the 2nd reason against this game is the family. Imagine, the family safety of the wii is inactive and suddenly you see your little, 5 years old brother playing this game....
Imagine your 5 years old brother wants to play XBOX. He doesnt even know, how to use it.

That's the big mistake. The Wii is mady for family, the game not... crash!



Turbo_Genesis_64 said:

It's funny how "family friendly" America probably won't allow this, but it seems like most of our popular television shows are either people kicking in each other faces or crappy reality shows about "get rich fast" Octo-moms .

American TV reached its peak with The Twilight Zone, in my opinion.
