Ubisoft pulls Mind Quiz from retail

Ben Parfitt
The BBC reports that Ubisoft has instigated a recall of its PSP and DS puzzle title Mind Quiz after a complaint from a mother in Northern Ireland relating to allegedly offensive content.

A lady from Belfast contacted the publisher to complain that when players perform poorly they are called a name that could be considered abusive to people with disabilities – the lady herself had recently lost a child who was severely brain damaged.

A spokesperson for Ubisoft apologised to “anyone who was offended by the game”, stating: "As soon as we were made aware of the issue we stopped distribution of the product and are now working with retailers to pull the game off the market.

"The game was developed in Japan, and we unfortunately did not pick up on the offending word in our quality assurance. We are currently working with the developer to find a way to rectify the issue."
