Still, Red Still 2 looks very promising, with an extravagant debut trailer that can give even the most skeptical critic hope. Red Steel 2 will also make full use of the new Wii MotionPlus controller, which will give players much increased control over the game. Ubisoft also announced at a press conference on April 29 that Red Steel 2 will be developed ground up with MotionPlus in mind.

In full, although you won’t be lined up outside stores for days on end waiting for this title, it might just be the sleeping giant that will shock the Wii community, so it’s definately worth watching out for.
