There’s no chance of Red Steel 2 appearing on any other console that Wii, creative director Jason Vandenberghe has said in this fan Q&A.

“Red Steel 2 is Wii exclusive, and Wii MotionPlus exclusive,” said the developer.

“The core gameplay of intense, 1st-person swordplay simply doesn’t function the way we want it to without the Wii Remote.”

When asked if the intention was to create a franchise as big as Rayman or Assassin’s Creed in red Steel, Vandenberghe added, “I would love nothing more than if everyone with a Wii bought and played our game, and then went out and convinced all their friends who didn’t have Wiis yet to buy one and do the same thing.”

It’s out later this year.
