Red Steel 2 details

GAIJIN! Earlier today, Ubisoft put out a press release describing a little about Red Steel 2.

Red Steel remains one of the most successful Wii titles and the only brand created specifically for the launch of the platform. Red Steel 2 is being developed by Ubisoft Paris and will be available for the 2009 holiday season.

Red Steel 2 returns with an artistic style and flair created just for Wii. Set in a desert-bound, hi-tech metropolis, Red Steel 2 is a revolution in the action-fighting genre, taking full advantage of the capabilities of Wii's MotionPlus accessory. Your movements are faithfully replicated on-screen, putting the emphasis on swinging, shooting and fun! With the capabilities of the MotionPlus to sense the strength of a swing, you will literally be able to make an impact on your adversaries through power and precision.

Red Steel 2 will be the must-have game of Holiday 2009 for those who wish to stretch themselves and fully experience a game that was built from the ground up to take advantage of the Wii MotionPlus.

Reports indicate that Red Steel 2 will actually be a cel-shaded game. More details will be available in Nintendo Power magazine (June issue).

Cell shaded? Not exactly what I was hoping for. But I'll wait and see. Maybe I'll like the style.

Sounds.. alright. Just hoping it's not as big a blunder as the first game.

I've seen the pics of the new graphic style and they look pretty good, I think Cell shaded graphics get too big of a bad rep. Then again you're talking to the guy who cares little about graphics. Still knowing that the motion controls will be improved I'm definitely giving Red Steel 2 a chance.

Zendalf: Agreed, that is very weird. I only got Red Steel because it had sword fighting and an east meets west theme. The gameplay itself wasn't too good and although I don't know how successful it was in sales I'm sure there are many better Wii titles.
