Ubisoft Reveals Red Steel 2 Coming in 2008

A sequel to Ubisoft Paris' Wii launch title Red Steel will be coming some time next year, according to the latest issue of the UK's Official Nintendo Magazine as reported by Gaming Target.

Currently in development, the game has yet to be officially named. The title will supposedly boast "better controls, better AI, better multiplayer and online play," according to the magazine. Critics panned the first game for its awkward use of the Wii's motion sensitive controller, among other flaws.

Many already speculated a sequel was in the works after Official Nintendo Magazine teased its current preview of the game in a prior issue with hints pointing to a continuation of the Red Steel series. Ubisoft has yet to release an official announcement of the title.
