Yesterday, the newest issue of Nintendo Power broke the news of a Red Steel sequel. Today Ubisoft confirmed the return of Red Steel.
“Red Steel was a unique opportunity for Ubisoft to work in tandem with Nintendo to create a title exclusively for the launch of the Wii console,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing US at Ubisoft. “Red Steel 2 is another milestone for the company as it is the first Ubisoft title with full Wii MotionPlus integration.”
Ubisoft has slated the game for a release in the 2009 holiday season.
