Red Steel 2 dev - "We've beaten the waggle"


Wii's waggle is dead. It is no more. Red Steel 2 and Wii MotionPlus has killed it, Jason Vanderberghe, the game's creative director, has claimed.

"Wii MotionPlus gives us the ability to measure how hard you're swinging... As a result of that, we've beaten the waggle," said the developer, talking in this video.

"You can't play Red Steel 2 like this," he added, doing a bit of air waggling.

Red Steel 2 only works with Wii MotionPlus, a move Vanderberghe said was necessary in realising the IP's core vision.

"At the heart of the franchise, really the promise of Red Steel, is the potential of sword-fighting with the Wiimote," he said.

"The Wii MotionPlus really brings that promise to life."

The game was recently pushed into Q1 2010.

Thanks for the heads-up, Nintendodpad.
