    Red Steel - no online support

    After the news last week that the Wii's 3rd party titles will not have online support, many fans have been crossing their fingers hoping Red Steel was an exception to the rule.

    Red Steel is without doubt one of the flagship launch titles for Wii and many thought for that reason alone Nintendo may have worked closely with the developers to allow for online play.

    “Online will maybe one day be announced by Nintendo but it won’t be for the launch [of Red Steel]. In terms of gameplay I can’t reveal anything really but what I can say is that internally we are making tons of tests.”
    Ubisoft Senior Project Coordinator Stephanie Langlois

    A multiplayer option has been discussed in the past, although now that looks like a bit of wishful thinking.

    By the sounds of the quote, it looks like we could have online multiplayer sometime after launch. It's not like we're never going to get online multiplayer for third party titles. I mean, "tonnes of tests" kinda sound like they're exploring the option. Hopefully, they'll find a way soon after launch - which is good, cos then we can at least get to grips with the controls before going online...


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    Eh. Nintendo just isn't an online company, which is unfortuante because i'm sure there are millions of Nintendo fans that would love to play against each other over SSMB or Metroid. Oh well for now I guess.


    Got mah Wii: 2/24/08

    I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life.

    And that is why I succeed.

    He didn't mean to, he hit send post twice, it's no problem

    Nice rhyming btw And I agree, everyone is going insane about all these games having no online support, when the fact is that most 3rd-party games will have it, it's just not going to happen the second it's released.

    Yes it is too bad that it wasn't available for the cube, good thing that will change for Corruption and SSBB.

    I'm not really worried, because someday it will have.
