Ubi confirms Red Steel

For Revolution launch.

Ubisoft has confirmed that its first title for the Nintendo Revolution will be Red Steel, an action game which will work with the console's unique 'freestyle' remote controller.

As revealed earlier this week, Red Steel is set in present day Japan, and will see players taking on Yakuza mobsters using both guns and katanas. The game is in development at Ubisoft Paris, and is being worked on by team members whose previous credits include Prince of Persia, Far Cry Instincts and Ghost Recon.

Ubisoft's chief creative officer, Serge Hascoet, said that he believes Red Steel - which will launch alongside the new console - will be a "must-have" title.

"We have been working closely with Nintendo to take full advantage of the innovative controller to create a thrilling experience that can only exist on the Revolution," Hascoet added.

Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime said: "Nintendo is excited to have Ubisoft bring Red Steel to the Revolution launch lineup. From what we have seen from Red Steel, it is going to be a standout exclusive title."

Red Steel is set to go on show at E3 next month.
