Ubisoft has announced the release date for Red Steel 2. The MotionPlus action game will be released in the UK on 26 March, the same day as Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver.
With Monster Hunter Tri coming in April, two of the big hardcore hopes for 2010 will be released in consecutive months.
With its MotionPlus controls, Red Steel 2 should be a big improvement on its predecessor. As Creative Director Jason Vandenberghe told ONM last year, "The game is so much fun with the Wii MotionPlus peripheral. I hope it gives gamers something really cool to do with their Wii. It's a really cool game for core gamers."
You can read more about Red Steel 2 in issue 53 of Official Nintendo Magazine which goes on sale on Friday 12 February.
