Given the poor commercial reception of Ubisoft’s sword shooter Red Steel 2, it seems a bit unlikely that Ubisoft would reveal plans for a third game, but if you feel like picking up a handful of salt and reading on, then by all means.
The French Official Nintendo Magazine apparently included a blurb recently that not only suggested Red Steel 3 was in development, but that the game would support the use of Nintendo’s pulse reading Vitality Sensor. How exactly such a device would be incorporated into a game about shooting and stabbing dudes is beyond me, which is why I told you to grab that salt earlier.
I’ve contacted Ubisoft to see if they feel like clarifying any of this, so stay tuned.
