Ubisoft’s Axed Wii U Game Exposed
There are more details on Ubisoft’s finished Wii U title which has been striking up major talk throughout the gaming industry.
The finished Wii U games has been exposed by the Unseen64 podcast. Titled “Know Your Friends”, the party game has never been launched and is put on hold since last 2014 whilst the publisher will still waits for the Wii U to be more mass-market in accordance to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.
According to Nintendo World Report, the game is said to be a multiplayer “quirky party/quiz game” that make use of the Wii U game pad in an interesting way where mostly playing on social interactions. Unseen64 had a sample question that asked every player to jot down their competitors on the touchscreen so that those who were more likely to invite friends over for dinner.
ESRB was cited and reported some questions including those that ask players the following, “Would accept doing the name of love during a steamy night in?”, asking “Which part of the female anatomy do people look at first and lastly choosing “Three objects for a sensual moment as a couple.”
Guillemot, revealed in an interview last year, describing the game as having been finished for 6 months. Adding that it is on the shelf waiting for more families to acquire the console.
There is a first filed trademarks by Ubisoft for Know our Friends last January. “We do not have anything to speak out at this time.”, commented by Gamespot.
That’s a shame that the Wii U is still not gaining the momentum in the industry to gain the full backing from such big publishers in the game. I feel that in order for the Wii U to take a stronger positioning among the competitors they need to continue to boost their marketing to persuade more people to pick up the console. I still believe that the Wii U is amazing and probably has the best catalog of games in comparison to the likes of the PS4 and Xbox One but their marketing has let them down dramatically.
