Ubisoft's Axed Wii U Game Revealed

Publisher was waiting for more Wii U consoles to be sold before releasing Know Your Friends.


More information on Ubisoft's unreleased, completed Wii U game has been revealed by the Unseen64 podcast (via Polygon). Titled Know Your Friends, the party game was never released, put on hold in 2014 while the publisher waited for the Wii U to become "more mass-market," according to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.

The game is described by Nintendo World Report as a multiplayer "quirky party/quiz game" which uses the Wii U GamePad in "interesting ways, mostly playing on social interactions." An example question cited by Unseen64 asked each player to list their competitors on the touch screen in order of those who were more likely to invite friends over for dinner.

Eurogamer cites the ESRB and reports that other questions include asking what players "would accept doing in the name of love during a steamy night in?", choosing "three objects for a sensual moment as a couple," and asking "which part of the female anatomy do people look at first?"

Speaking in an interview during E3 last year, Guillemot described the game as having "been done for six months. It's on the shelf, waiting for more families to have the console."

Ubisoft first filed trademarks for Know Your Friends in January last year. GameSpot reached out to the publisher for comment, who said, "We don’t have anything to announce at this time."
