This game was actually spotted last year, so the question now reverts to "will this game be released?". Possibly not, it seems.
A few scares and bumps in the road aside, Ubisoft has been a strong third-party ally for Nintendo. It's a prolific company with a varied catalogue of titles under its belt, and a recent ESRB rating seems to bring some good news for Wii U owners.
The Entertainment Software Rating Board - to indulge it with its full name - has just given details on a Ubisoft title yet to be officially announced by the company itself. According to its website it's called Know Your Friends, and is described as follows:
A multiplayer trivia game in which players form teams to answer questions about their friends' personalities. Questions are presented in multiple-choice format, as players attempt to guess teammates' answers.
Definitely a multiplayer party game then, and interestingly enough it has been allocated a T for Teen rating, which should spice up proceedings a little. The summary goes on to warn of references to sexual themes, alcohol and tobacco, and even some partial nudity. Sample questions go so far as to ask “Which part of the female anatomy do people look at first?”, so while it would make for some awkward family nights in, it would fill a space in the market for a party game with real teeth.
At the time of writing the only platform listed is Wii U, but as with all good news that may be subject to change. Regardless, it's possibly a fun one to keep an eye on and may offer an adult alternative to some of Wii Party U's fun trivia games.
