Are you ready to test your wits against the knowledge of an average 5th grader? The classic quiz show returns to gaming platforms, for the first time since Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader: Make the Grade released on consoles in 2008.
The final season of the game show aired in 2015, although Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader also aired as a podcast between 2020 and 2021. Now the game show will return as a video game, allowing players to rise to the challenge–or fall back on their classmates for help if they need it.
The game will be playable solo or with friends in co-op couch multiplayer, and will feature multiple-choice questions, true or false challenges, and mini-games featuring over 6,800 questions based on a standard 5th grade syllabus.
“With so many kids learning at home and so many of these gaming systems in homes around the world, now couldn’t be a better time to revitalize Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? in the video game space.” , said Adrienne Lauer of THQ Nordic.
Players will be able to test their knowledge on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC, with the new game due out later this year. The game is developed by Massive Miniteam studio and published by HandyGames, a subsidiary of THQ Nordic in collaboration with rights owner MGM.
