Red Steel 2 this holiday, to “revolutionize” the genre

Ubisoft has just sent over an official Red Steel 2 announcement, saying the sequel to the Wii launch title will be arriving this holiday season sporting an artistic style and boldly promising to revolutionize the action-fighting genre by fully utilizing the Wii MotionPlus; “Your movements are faithfully replicated on-screen, putting the emphasis on swinging, shooting and fun! With the ability of the Wii MotionPlus to sense the strength of a swing, you will literally be able to make an impact on your adversaries through power and precision.”

Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing US at Ubisoft says Red Steel 2 is the first title with full MotionPlus integration and Ubisoft is pimping the game as “built from the ground up to take advantage of the Wii MotionPlus.”

The game takes place in a desert high-tech metropolis, reflected in this first image that was sent out with the announcement.
