We're all taking the news of Red Steel 2's delay pretty hard here at Kotaku Towers. Some of us were really looking forward to seeing the Wii MotionPlus put to use outside of sports games and mini-game collections.

To make the wait go a little bit quicker—at least two minutes and thirty seconds worth of that wait—here's a handy primer on the game's hero, specifically his East meets West design. There's a little Asian, a little American, a little Native American in the mix here, a tasty blend that should make Red Steel 2 stand apart from the first.

Guess we'll see how it all worked out in the Spring.
