German Interview Reveals Red Steel Details

by (2006-08-28)

German Web site Nintendo-LAN spoke with the developers of Red Steel, Ubisoft's upcoming first-person action game, during the Games Convention 2006 in Leipzig, Germany. Taking questions from a reader, the Red Steel developers shed further light on many of the game's aspects, including its graphics, load times, and redesigned control system.

According to the interview, the developers, "confirmed that the control scheme will be completely redesigned so that the controller moves are converted into the game precisely. Besides, the controller sensitivity will be completely adjustable in the final version. And the graphics were improved very well since E3, now the atmosphere is darker and thrilling. But that's not all, there will be even more improvements on the graphics side."

On loading times, it was revealed that, "In Red Steel there will be no loading times at all because of smart streaming techniques. How it's handled in other Wii games we can't say at the moment. But it's a fact that Mario Strikers Charged will have loading times similar to the GameCube version of the game."
