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

Monday, 22nd February 2010 20:52 GMT By Johnny Cullen


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.

Thanks, dirigiblebill.

    Ubi says: “Natal is no good for FPS’”.
    This does not bold well.

    Yeah but Patcher says Natal will outsell Arc 10 to 1… but of course he has been known to be wrong… from time to time.

    Well if it is indeed bundled with every 360 then it most likely will. I mean, the 360 sells 200,00 in a month, that’ll suddenly be 200,00 Natal sales, yay! Its selling well!

    The PS3 Is Gonna Take All The Wii’s 3rd Party Games & HD Them Since They All Sell So Pourly On The Wii, Even Casual Wii Players Will Buy PS3 & ARC For The HD Experience.

    Heh. It’s rather amusing how everyone says Red Steel is ‘shit and only sold because it was a launch game’ one second and is then super excited about the very same game possibly coming to PS3 as if that would somehow make it ‘not shit’. It’s either shit or it isn’t, chaps – make your minds up!

    I liked the original Red Steel and this looks great. Bring on a PS3 version.
