Sexy Poker is a strip poker video game by Gameloft originally released for mobile phone platforms in 2004. A WiiWare version was released in North America on August 3, 2009 and in Europe on September 25, 2009. It is the first ESRB M-rated game to be released for WiiWare.

Overview

The objective of the game is for players to win hands in order to remove articles of clothing from their female opponents, which are either portrayed by still photographs or manga-style artwork. Along with 5-card draw or Texas hold 'em poker, players can also compete in video poker and blackjack. The game also features a photo gallery mode.

The original game was followed by several sequels including Sexy Poker 2006, Sexy Poker Manga, Sexy Poker Top Models and Sexy Poker Pixel. Compared to the mobile phone versions, the WiiWare version does not feature any nudity.[2]

Controversy

The WiiWare version of Sexy Poker has been refused classification by the Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification, with issues raised with the game's use of nudity as an incentive or reward for players, which is prohibited by the Office's current classification guidelines.[3] It is the only WiiWare game so far to be banned from release, but it is possible for Australian gamers to obtain the game by the player changing it's country of origin in Wii Settings to New Zealand where the game is not banned and Nintendo Points bought in Australia are also valid in New Zealand.

Reception

Nintendo Life called the WiiWare version "a letdown for fans of both poker and sexiness", citing the bare bones presentation, odd application of rules and lack of multiplayer and replayability.[4] IGN believed that the game will only appeal to adolescents and those who download it as a joke.[5]
