Ubisoft Slices Sales Predictions for Red Steel 2 in Two

500,000 still a big figure, though

We've been keeping a close eye on Ubisoft's upcoming East-meets-West shooter Red Steel 2 - seriously, we have some of the world's best content on it, y'know - which is now due for launch in March of this year. Perhaps taking on board the recent discussion of mature games on Wii, the company has decided to lower its sales estimate from one million to 500,000 units..

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle Web Site Launched

It's official: Henry wears "a right natty vest"

Here at Nintendo Life we’re very excited about the imminent release of No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle and it seems Ubisoft have been reading our Christmas wish lists as they have now launched a dedicated web site (not to be visited by those who are easily offended!) The site is really rather good if a little low on content just yet though..

Rabbids Race Through London

Souped-up trolley hitting UK cities

Game-themed cars are nothing new - everyone from Pikachu to Sonic has had their face plastered on a car over the years - but a game-themed shopping trolley capable of 70mph is definitely something we haven't seen before. Add a huge Rabbid figure to the back - in mid-BWAAAH pose, of course - and drive the trolley through the streets of London and you've got one of..

Red Steel 2 Sharpens Up

New build, new features, new joy

Since our first hands-on play with Red Steel 2 all the way back in June - yes, it really was that long ago - we've had two more chances to get to grips with the game, the most recent at this week's Eurogamer EXPO where a new build was on display. How's the title coming along? Very, very nicely. Our play-through was...

First Impressions: Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes

Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes

Might and magic and myths and... Meteos?!

The DS has loads of good puzzle games - Picross, Tetris, Meteos - and some fantastic strategy titles too - Fire Emblem and Advance Wars chief among them. But it could certainly do with more great puzzle strategy games; titles that blend the addictive action of matching coloured objects with the cerebral challenge of conquering enemies and planning attacks..

First Impressions: C.O.P. The Recruit

C.O.P. The Recruit

Take the beat to the streets

C.O.P. The Recruit was announced back at E3 in June, and quickly marked itself out as one to watch by promising an open world experience unlike anything on DS. Now we've had chance to grab a few minutes with the title, does it live up to the hype or is it lagging behind Chinatown Wars? The first thing you'll notice on loading up C.O.P. is that it looks pretty. Very,..

First Impressions: Rabbids Go Home

Rabbids Go Home

Put this in your trolley!

There's only one possible conclusion to be drawn from Rabbids Go Home - it's mental. Anyone involved in its development should probably be sectioned under the Mental Health Act, such is the scale of the crazy acts featured in this first traditional adventure game for the Rabbids. Of course, if you've been following our exclusive Behind the Scenes Developer's Blog you'll..

ESRB let slip a sequel to Altair's Chronicles

Although 2008's Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles for DS may not have been one of the machine's most memorable titles, that hasn't deterred Ubisoft from putting together a sequel for the little handheld. The ESRB have just posted a rating for Assassin's Creed II: Discovery, and although the listing is predictably low on information it does give a..

Trains explode too, all in new gameplay video

No Wild West meets feudal Japan first-person shooting game would be complete without some deadly ninjas appearing, would it?

Plus your chance to pitch your questions to the developers!

Before I got the MotionPlus add-on in my sweaty hands, we had an in-depth presentation from the game's development team outlining the game's story to us. The original Red Steel revolved around an American entering the seedy underbelly of the Japanese mob world, but the second title tells a totally different tale that'll be familiar to fans..

In the great man's words, "f***ing A!"

Details on the newly emerged action title begin to spill...

Although Wii launch title Red Steel received a mixed response from the critics, its sequel is deep in the works and presents more than a little promise. The motion sensitive Wii Remote seems an uncanny representative for both shooting and sword fighting games, and Red Steel 2 promises to deliver both in full force. The original attempted..
