Are you feeling depressed? Alone? Well, cheer up: given the way social games tack ‘With Friends’ onto every title, you can fool yourself into believing that the entire Internet loves you! Or you can just go ahead and keep playing these games without giving or expecting emotional commitment. Coming up: UNO & Friends by Gameloft.
In a press release distributed earlier today, Gameloft revealed that it has teamed up with Mattel to produce and distribute UNO & Friends, the next iteration of the popular UNO card game. The new installment, titled UNO & Friends, is playable across multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, Facebook, Nintendo 3DS, and PS Vita. You can play and chat with up to three of your buddies regardless of the platform that you wield.
The original UNO is still a popular download on the App Store.
Gonzague de Vallois, Senior Vice President of Publishing at Gameloft, is looking forward to spreading more and friendship through UNO. ‘UNO is a world-renowned brand, and Gameloft is thrilled to be working with such a respected company as is Mattel on this ambitious project,’ he stated. ‘As our goal is to revolutionize the way people play UNO this new game and its new social features will be at the heart of UNO & Friends.’
Look for Uno & Friends on Facebook, iOS, and Android later this year. The Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita versions of the game will follow in spring 2013.
