According to this GI report, Ubisoft’s confirmed that Wii MotionPlus will be used in sword-fighting sequel Red Steel 2.

“Red Steel 2 has been in development for many months now, and this new device will help us be even more precise in what we do with the product,” said company director Alain Corre.

The new Wii motion add-on was shown for the first time at E3 this year, and Corre believes the Red Steel brand will benefit from the tech boost.

“The Red Steel brand is strong – I think we released it on year one, and that people understood that it was a first try on new technology, technology that wasn’t completely finished. And our game tried to grab the best out of it, and was a bit rushed to be sure to offer something in year one to Wii consumers,” he added.

“So Red Steel is a brand, and as with every brand we have, we now have to reach the top quality possible. What was missing was the preciseness of the sabre – and with this new device I think it will change the experience.”
