Is Wii Waggle Dead?
The creative director for Red Steel 2 seems to think so. Jason Vanderberghe goes so far to say that the Wii Waggle is dead, it is no more, it has shuffled off this mortal coil and gone off to meet it’s maker, it is an ex-feature.
He attributes this all to the Wii MotionPlus…yup another example of the accessory making the game.
“Wii MotionPlus gives us the ability to measure how hard you’re swinging… As a result of that, we’ve beaten the waggle. At the heart of the franchise, really the promise of Red Steel, is the potential of sword-fighting with the Wiimote, The Wii MotionPlus really brings that promise to life.”
Sorry if I’m skeptical guys, I seem to remember the first Red Steel being pretty assy after you made the same promise. None of us will be able to tell until sometime before April of next year, but I’m not holding out hope that they’ve finally got it all working.
