Ubisoft makes Red Steel official

Red Steel, which will launch as a Revolution exclusive, is set in modern-day Japan, and will have players taking control of katanas as well as modern weaponry using the Revolution's unique controller.

Serge Hascoet, chief creative officer at Ubisoft said that he's confident Red Steel will be a "must-have" launch title. He added, "“We have been working closely with Nintendo to take full advantage of the innovative controller.

"Nintendo marketing boss Reggie Fils-Aime said, "From what we have seen from Red Steel, it is going to be a standout exclusive title on the Revolution.”

Ubisoft Paris is handling development duties, and is made up of vets from the Prince of Persia, Far Cry Instincts, Ghost Recon and Splinter Cell franchises.The title will make it's worldwide debut at E3 in May, although the latest Game Informer covers the game this month.

Its nice to see Nintendo backing this title so much, E3 will be a blow out of this game.
