We have heard rumblings about Red Steel 2 for months, even Nintendo Power had a teaser about the game awhile back.  But we still know nothing. So when Nintendo unveiled the Wii Motion Plus, people were wondering what 3rd party games will take advantage it.  Ubisoft’s Alain Corre explains:

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. 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. But Red Steel is still selling well — at a lower price of course, but still it’s in the top 30 or 40 in every country on Wii.

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.
