While speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Alain Corre, Ubisoft’s executive director, commented on the new device, and how it will help to make Red Steel 2 a much better game than its predecessor.

“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", he said.

“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,” he added. “So Red Steel is a brand, and as with every brand we have, we now have to reach the top quality possible. What was missing was the preciseness of the sabre - and with this new device I think it will change the experience.

When you make a great game, you need more than one year of development. A lot of games are made in less than a year, but they’re not great products and they’re not selling at all. So it takes some time to develop good games".

It's good to hear that Ubisoft are aware of what they did wrong with the original game, hopefully they can make good use of Wii Motion Plus and show us what it can do for the Wii.
