Wii dance game We Dance will launch in the UK on 2nd September, developer Nordic Games has announced.
Featuring 40 poptastic tunes, the game allows four players to strut their stuff in front of the TV, Wii Remotes and glowsticks firmly in hand.
We Dance is the follow-up to Wii sing title We Sing and the Take That frontman-centric We Sing: Robbie Williams.
The problem with trying to outlaw something is you just end up increasing demand. Ask D. H. Lawrence, the author of Spycatcher or anyone who's ever tried to ban Judy Blume's Forever from a girls' comprehensive.
You also end up giving the thing an air of saucy mysteriousness it almost certainly doesn't deserve. Spycatcher is basically about working in the civil service. Forever is about a boy who calls his penis Ralph. Lady Chatterley's Lover is all billowing flanks and primordial tenderness, which is nothing compared to what you can watch women doing with lengths of rubber tubing on the internet these days.
Which brings us to We Dare, the Wii party game Ubisoft thinks is too sexy for the UK. They blamed the decision on our reaction to that advert - you know, the one where chiselled male models spank hot women in tweed skirts and they all laugh like they aren't crying inside because they know the next rung on the ladder is porn.
When Lifestyle Meets Real Life.
UPDATE: Ubisoft has made the We Dare video YouTube advertisement embedded on the UbiShop website private, preventing users from watching it.
Ubisoft has bowed to mainstream pressure and decided not to release controversial Wii and PlayStation 3 game We Dare in the UK.
It had been slated for release this Friday.
"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," Ubisoft said in a statement issued this evening to The Daily Telegraph.
Saucy PS3 and Wii party game We Dare will not be available in America, publisher Ubisoft has confirmed.
