Ubisoft’s Completed But Unreleased Wii U Party Game
The studio known for Just Dance completed development on this bizarre party game for the Wii U a while ago, but it still isn't hitting store shelves anytime soon.
According to Eurogamer, Yves Guillemot, the CEO of Ubisoft, revealed that his company has a fully completed Wii U title that has been ready for mass production. Unfortunately, the big wigs at Ubi have decided to keep this project in the garage until the Wii U's audience gets bigger. This game was a papercraft-like party game, called Know Your Friends, and it looks weird -- like Saddam Hussein in 'South Park' kind of weird.
Based on details obtained by Unseen64, Know Your Friends was developed by the Red Steel and Just Dance team at Ubisoft Paris. It's intended to be a multiplayer quiz game where you and your buddies must answer bizarre, socially awkward questions about each other and guess what was said. Questions include "which part of the female anatomy do people look at first" and choosing three objects for a sensual moment as a couple. Some answers can be done with images (like whips, handcuffs and condoms for the previous question). Characters were implemented into the game using the Wii U GamePad's camera and posting a picture of their face onto papercraft characters.
Guillemot claims the game has been ready since early 2014 and Ubisoft is just waiting for more Wii U consoles to be out in the world. With the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One dominating the current-gen console war, you might have to keep waiting, Mr. Guillemot. Ubisoft is better off porting the game to PlayStation and Xbox and using each of their appropriate camera accessories for the in-game faces. Super Smash Bros. sold a lot of Wii U systems. If Know Your Friends isn't out shortly after Zelda Wii U's release, we have a feeling it may never launch.
