Red Steel MotionPlus Support Confirmed

Red Steel MotionPlus Support Confirmed on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The first piece of art from Ubisoft's Red steel has emerged, revealing a wild-west chap with a sword and revolver.

A Nintendo Power teaser cover for the game expresses much hope for those wanting a smoother experience in the launch title, "Finally, wielding a sword in a Wii game feels as real as you'd always dreamed", donning this chap with a funky futuristic coat and two weapons. An old Western/sci-fi mix for the next game? The slogan seems to practically confirm support for MotionPlus, which itself is due to be bundled with Wii Sports Resort this July.

Thanks to GameSpot

Update: The game will be also be shown off in the UK Official Nintendo Magazine a few days earlier on May 8th 2009.

In the magazine we'll be revealing all about the stunning MotionPlus slash 'em up and you'll be able to check out the first screenshots and read an interview with creative director Jason Vandenberghe.

Thanks to ONM's Tom for the tip.

Update 2: Ubisoft have sent over a link to the Official Red Steel 2 website, a placeholder page for now.

So this isn't going to be (insert generic white guy) trying to save (insert generic love interest) with all the dullness that was the last Red Steel?

I sold my soul to Sony for a PS3...

will we get naked chicks with fake boobs who are wielding samurai swords too?

+10 points if it happens.

Last red steel was a lousy effort. Hope this one will be worth it. What happened to the fps potential the wii seemed to have...?

Putting things into perspective. Ubisoft had a hard task ahead of them. Trying to fit sword play when it was basicly impossible hence no sword games since. Rushing out a title to meet launch being one of the first to really get behind the wii remote controls.

No excuses now though. there are atleast three excellent templates for shooting controls and I cant see motionplus being hard to implement.

To be honest Im more interested in this already compared to conduit. I fear the conduit will be generic in everything but the controls. A celshaded western/samurai game screams appeal.

If it does have M+ I probably will pick up this game as it appeals to me more than wii sports etc. Only after ive read a review though im not in the business of wasting my money

Wow, I like the art direction. Hard to believe that I am saying that about Ubi's game for Wii.

As a WiiMotion+ only game, surely every copy should be bundled with WM+? Would be stupid of them to sell seperate versions only for people to find out they won\'t work without the add-on.

Announcer: How many Motion+ Games should be bundled with Motion+?

Whiny Kid: I have more than 5!

Most, if not all, games that use M+ probably don't require the accessory.

True that probably most Wii MotionPlus games will have the option to play without, but it just won't be as good.

Problem is that people are ignorant, and it'll ruin the chances of games doing as well as they could have if Nintendo had bloody done this in the first place.

The key thing for developers is install and audience. Nintendo's biggest mistake was lacking a classic controller with every Wii, and now having MotionPlus available nearly 3 years later.

Third person shooter would be a better option for this, specially considering that you use an sword. In third person perspective you can do more things with the sword than in first person view which would be confusing

What is the deal with the Sunset Riders' boss graphic? Sequel?

Hopefully it'll be good. The spaghetti western trench coat and giant pistol and katana look is nice!

Plot wise, I don't understand how this is a sequel. I only rented the first one, but I sure don't remember anything with that kind of style in it. The two styles are completely different it looks like. Not that that's a bad thing. I'm liking this tons more!

I saw something that said the game requires WM+. Could be wrong but we'll have to see.

i want gameplay footage and a firm release date!

Seems interesting... Really, the first one wasn't bad... It just needed more refined controls. The sword fighting was bad, but the rest of the game was decent. Looking forward to this.

But more importantly, who's the girl with the untied kimono and the sword? Smilie

GOt my copy of ONM today and the game looks fantastic in the screenshots. Hopefully it looks just as good in motion. Smilie
