Everyone's been buzzing since Ubisoft unveiled We Dare
-- aimed to be a "sexy" Wii and PlayStation 3 game where players act out flirtatious minigames using the Wii's remote or Move controls. But apparently some think the game contains too much stripping and spanking for the UK audience -- it won't be released there.
The game received a 12+ rating from PEGI, and apparently a deal of public outcry as well: "Following the public reaction to the 12+ rating of We Dare
, Ubisoft has made the decision not to sell the game in the United Kingdom," a company spokesperson told The Daily Telegraph
isn't explicit -- mainly it asks players to demonstrate playful flirtation -- but the slightly risque trailer
raised numerous eyebrows. According to the Telegraph report, UK politicians found it "racy" and called for it to be kept off shelves for its sexual content.
Ubisoft has also announced that it doesn't plan to release the game in the U.S. -- the publisher went so far as to block the official version of the much-discussed trailer for U.S. audiences. Thus, We Dare
is now aimed for continental Europe only.
