Red Steel 2 Wouldn’t Work Anywhere But Wii
In a Q&A session on the Ubisoft forums, Red Steel 2‘s Jason Vandenberghe (Creative Director) answered a pointed question to whether or not the company would look towards a multiplatform release.
Red Steel 2 is Wii exclusive, and Wii MotionPlus exclusive. The core gameplay of intense, 1st-person swordplay simply doesn’t function the way we want it to without the Wii Remote.
I find this highly entertaining that someone would answer bluntly that they would cut themselves out of a potential revenue source by remaining console specific. Especially when my previous post has a Wii developer looking to go multiplatform to increase his brand’s recognition. The game industry is MADDENING!!!
