Red Steel 2 coming March 26 (23 for you lucky Yanks!)

redsteel2Ubisoft, via the latest trailer for the sequel to their Wii launch title, has revealed that Red Steel 2 will be dropping stateside on March 23, whilst us across the pond will have to twiddle our thumbs for another 72 hours.

I’ve no idea about the rest of you but I’m actually quite excited for Red Steel 2.  I know the first game wasn’t exactly incredible but I thought it was a solid launch title and whilst it’s mainly been collecting dust since I picked up Medal of Honour Heroes 2 and later, The Conduit, I still got a decent amount of enjoyment out of the shooter.  The promise of Motion+ swordplay combined with some of the best visuals my eyes have had the pleasure of gazing upon on the Wii (which kind of remind me of XIII) has me seriously considering picking it up on launch.  Check out the trailer after the break.

    So far RS2 hasn’t done much to get me excited… The swordplay still doesn’t look as cool as Wii Sports Resorts’ 1-1 sword battles and the visuals are leaving a bit to be desired… Ubisoft really isn’t pouring much into the production values…

    Hopefully I’m proven wrong. I’ll definitely give the game a shake when it comes out.

    I think the graphics look great. I never played the first one, but I’m interested in seeing how this one turns out.

    Sweet, looks like 2010 is starting off really nice for me. This month it was TvC (picked it up last night), next month will be NMH 2, and in March Red Steel 2!

    i didn’t mind the first one at all, so this one looks like a step up in all the right directions. i’ll definitely be picking this one up, just not sure how soon. i can’t believe i’m saying this, but i have too many games to beat right now and i got my call regarding TvC so i’m stoked to pick that up friday. i just need more money darn it!!!
