Coffee Beans 

Red Steel 2 has been out on the Wii for more than 2 years now. It was developed by Ubisoft’s Paris studio, and published by Ubisoft. The game did have a U.S. commercial for advertising, I believe two actually, and the game released with two versions being available for purchase.

One was the software only version for $49.99, and the second version was $59.99 and included a Wii MotionPlus unit which is required to play the game. Both versions have seen big price drops since they released, like most games do. The software only version can now be found for under $20 where available, and the Wii MotionPlus bundled version, while harder to find directly from retailers, can be found for around $30.

About the author:

Jeremy’s love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80’s when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he’ll answer, “the day I beat Zelda 2.” To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers.

Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
