    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.

    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...

    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.

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

    Nice rhyming btw:lol: 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.:D

    All I care about is that teh first party titles are online and that SSBB is online.
    I really wanna be able to play my friends 'cause I'm tired of taking on 3 level nines in SSBM and winning without using the a button.
    We should have tournaments on the Wii connect 24 when the Wii is released.
    It would be great!

    yah i0n could make a Online section and some of the sub sections can be: Tournements (topics only by i0n) Free Torurnment (Anyone can host it) or Skirmish (find an oppenent on here) Help (online help/connectivitiy, what not) i think it would be awesome, hopefully this site wont die right every launch cause everyone is to busy with their Wii's oh and we should also get a Game Review section and maybe Haku can get his own little sub section for haku gaming finaly ^.^
