Arc “could work fantastically with Red Steel 2, Natal wouldn’t be a “natural fit”

Red Steel 2 “could work fantastically” well with PlayStation Arc, according to creative director Jason Vandenberghe.

Natal? Not so much.

Speaking with VideoGamesDaily, Vandenberghe said the 360 motion camera wouldn’t be a “natural fit” with the game.

“I think it could work fantastically with the Sony wand,” he said. “With this kind of game you need a thumbstick, that’s the only real constraint. For walking around at least, I haven’t seen a solution.

“Microsoft may come forward and show me something I haven’t seen before, which makes me understand how you can play a first-person action game like this that requires this intense finesse and accuracy in your motion, and not have a controller in your hand of some kind.

“But I think we need to have a thumbstick. I think this is probably a more natural fit for the Sony side of things right now, but I don’t think Microsoft is showing all of its cards right now either,” he further added.

Earlier, Vandenberghe said that if Red Steel 2 doesn’t live up to its potential success, the series will be finished.

The game’s out on March 23 in the US and March 26 in the UK for Wii. Both Arc and Natal are due for release by the end of the year.
