Red Steel 2 with MotionPlus due in 2009
Posted by Anthony Dickens
Ubisoft recently let things slip that they will follow up the somewhat let-down-of-the-year Red Steel early next year.
"Red Steel 2 has been in development for many months now, and this new device will help us be even more precise in what we do with the product. The Red Steel brand is strong - I think we released it on year one, and that people understood that it was a first try on new technology, technology that wasn't completely finished,"
"And our game tried to grab the best out of it, and was a bit rushed to be sure to offer something in year one to Wii consumers. But Red Steel is still selling well - at a lower price of course, but still it's in the top 30 or 40 in every country on Wii...What was missing from Red Steel though was the preciseness of the sabre and with this new device I think it will change the experience."
Nice to hear that Ubisoft recognise the flaws in the original game, hopefully they will get them sorted for this second title and will make good use of the new MotionPlus thingy.
With the attachment, Nintendo suggests that developers will be able to re-create true 1:1 swordplay action.
