Ubisoft's Action Fighting Video Game on Nintendo
Wii™

New York, March 17,
2010
- Renowned composer Tom Salta has written and
produced an original musical score for Red Steel™ 2,
Ubisoft's new first-person action title developed exclusively for the Nintendo
Wii™ and designed with full Wii MotionPlus™ integration. In Red Steel
2
, the player becomes a swordsman who finds himself in a remote mixed
metropolis in the middle of the American desert, where Eastern and Western
cultures collide. To reflect this adventurous new setting in Red Steel
2
, Salta composed an action-packed 'Wild West' guitar-driven score blended
with evocative Asian music influences. Developed by Ubisoft Paris, Red Steel
2
is scheduled for release on March 23rd, 2010.

"Tom Salta is an
extremely
versatile composer and delivers a unique and dynamic soundtrack for Red

Steel 2," said Isabelle Ballet, music supervisor for Red Steel 2.

"He has crafted various music styles including mixing blues guitars with

traditional Asian instruments to produce an energetic, hybrid score that

motivates and immerses players in the action. We can't wait to share
this
experience with everyone!"

 

For the Red
Steel 2

score, Salta enlisted the virtuosic guitar performances of veteran
studio
musician Steve Ouimette and recorded various instrumentalists for
Chinese
percussion, Shakuhachi, Fue, Pipa, harmonica and violin. Salta
previously scored
the original Red Steel soundtrack that received numerous
accolades for
its vibrant musical palette, including IGN's Wii Award for Best Original

Music.
