The latest issue of Nintendo Power magazine has a cover story on Ubisoft's upcoming Wii sequel, Red Steel 2.

Given that the magazine isn't out yet there's not a great deal of info, although the cover boldly claims: "Finally, wielding a sword in a Wii game feels as real as you'd always dreamed!"

The promise of hugely improved swordplay over the original game is likely in no small part a result of Wii MotionPlus support, a feature confirmed in the contents page of the magazine. The sequel also appears to have had a significant design makeover, now coming over distinctly Old West.

The June issue of Nintendo Power goes on sale May 12 in North America.
