Description

In Red Steel 2 Wild West gunplay and Samurai skill with the blade collide head on. Set in a desert-bound, high-tech metropolis a swordsman with no name is nearly all that is left of the once powerful Kusagari-clan. A clan known as “the Jackals”, lead by one known as “Payne”, are responsible and now it is the Swordsman's duty and you're to avenge the fallen Kusagari.

Red Steel 2 is a single player first-person shooter developed exclusively for Wii and designed to utilize the Wii Remote's optional MotionPlus technology. Players will pick up the Wii Remote and swing it freely as the sword on-screen follows their precise movement – and even measures the strength of their swing. With this added ability of the Wii MotionPlus to sense the strength of a swing, you will literally be able to make an impact on your adversaries through power and precision and even engage multiple pistol-packing enemies at once, deflecting bullets with precise sword strokes. Along with less stylish actions, players rack up points through executing combos, finishing moves and other actions as members of the rival Jackal clan are eliminated. Additional abilities and weapons are earned or are available for purchase as victories pile up.

Features

  • Upgrade you arsenal of katanas swords, guns and abilities as you rack up victories against the Jackal clan.
  • Embody a lone fighter, a man of few words with a shaded past full of mystery. Face various, and increasingly stronger, enemies and defeat challenging bosses in epic and intense fights.
  • Visit various locations through a remote mixed metropolis in the middle of the American desert, where Eastern culture and Western culture have been smashed together into a hodgepodge jumble.
  • The Wii MotionPlus provides 1:1 recognition where the sword and gun movements are precisely replicated within the game. Slash the villains the way you want. The harder you swing the Wii Remote, the harder the sword swings in the game.
  • Become master swordsman and gunslinger fighting up to six enemies simultaneously; using your sword or your gun at any time; mastering aster combos galore; and, even deflecting bullets with the blade.

Editorial Review

Red Steel 2 is a single player first-person shooter that allows the player to blend Samurai bushido ethics with the blade, with the over-the-top gun combat. A Wii exclusive, action is set in a fictional, yet immersive and edgy Western setting and utilizes optional Wii MotionPlus technology to add precision to players actions both with the sword and the gun. This precision of motion allows everything from turning the sword into both a cutting and blunt weapon, to blocking bullets with single strokes as players exact revenge on a rival clan.
