In what you might consider a bold move, Red Steel 2 will be a game that forces the player to use the Wii MotionPlus addon. This will ensure much more realistic sword fighting, but could also cut a slice (!) into the game's potential market. Jason Vandenberghe, a creative director at Ubisoft has voiced concerns:
"It is a huge risk. We've no idea what the penetration rate for Wii MotionPlus will be. We assume high. We would like it to be high. I wish I could say to you that it'll be compatible with just a regular Wiimote, but the experience simply isn't there without MotionPlus".
Big sales are expected for the MotionPlus, as Nintendo are bundling it in with Wii Sports Resort. Here's hoping these expectations come to fruition, for Ubisoft's sake.
