Ubisoft’s Know Your Friends rated for Wii U


Ubisoft are looking to bring Know Your Friends to Wii U, the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has revealed.

This is largely similar to a Facebook game that the publisher released back in 2009, a party trivia game in which players saw their knowledge about their friends put to the test.

It’s rather risqué in terms of content, seeming at odds with Nintendo’s family-friendly appeal. Yet this isn’t the first time that it has been rated for Wii U, the ESRB having previously posted their rating for the title last July.

Their most recent rating, issued by the board in the past month, reads:

“This is 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. Out of hundreds of possible questions, some contain suggestive/sexual references (e.g., ‘[Player] is wondering what he would accept doing in the name of love during a steamy night in?’ ‘{Player] is choosing 3 objects for a sensual moment as a couple,’ and ‘Which part of the female anatomy do people look at first?’— accompanying images depict cleavage and a close-up of a woman’s buttocks (wearing jeans).

“Some questions are accompanied by still photos of objects such as condoms, whips, and handcuffs; other images depict men and women in revealing outfits (e.g., swimsuits, underwear or lingerie). One question, about a nude beach, briefly depicts a man’s bare buttocks. During the course of the game, questions may also reference alcohol and tobacco (e.g., ‘[Player] is thinking about the things she has done after too much drinking with friends’—the accompanying image depicts a man bent over a toilet; another question asks what object relieves stress—the accompanying image depicts a pack of cigarettes.). One of the screens depicts a still image of a man bound to a chair (e.g., ‘[Q]Using torture in difficult times is…’).”

If soon set to release, I’m sure that Ubisoft will reveal more about the title in the coming weeks.
