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.
Ubisoft Senior Project Coordinator Stephanie Langlois“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.”
A multiplayer option has been discussed in the past, although now that looks like a bit of wishful thinking.
