Game show spin-offs have historically been pretty popular on consoles in the past, and they’re enjoying something of a renaissance right now, with the likes of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy already available on the PS Store. Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? is the next TV show to get a digital remake, and judging by this debut trailer – well, it actually looks pretty good.
Releasing later this year on both the PlayStation 5 and PS4, the release will feature a robust couch co-op mode as you’d expect – although you will be also be able to face off against virtual tweens alone, if that’s your jam. “With over 6,800 multiple-choice questions, truth-or-false challenges, and minigames, you'll have the chance to challenge your proficiency in 24 different subjects, with topics like animal sciences, vocabulary, math, and more,” the blurb explains.
