Red Steel waves its weapons

First-person killathon Red Steel is surely the highest profile, non-Nintendo-developed game that's winging its way to Wii, and we've successfully snagged a handful of screens that show both blade and black steel being wielded.

Red Steel is a tale of bloody retribution that pitches players against the formidable might of Japan's feared crime syndicate, the Yakuza.

As the shots show, Red Steel alternates between gun and sword-based slaughter, both of which are controlled using Wii's motion sensing remote.
