Red Steel online play...eventually?

Red Steel online play

As you may recall, Nintendo has said there will be no Internet play in third-party Wii titles until 2007. Ubisoft's much-hyped Red Steel is among the affected. So what kind of multiplayer will the game have, if any? The answer is four-player split-screen, which should create some interesting collisions as four people swing their Wiimotes in front of the same TV. What's more intriguing is that Ubi's Stephanie Langlois adds, "Online will maybe one day be announced by Nintendo but it won't be for the launch [of Red Steel]. In terms of gameplay I can't reveal anything really but what I can say is that internally we are making tons of tests." Could some sort of patch or re-issue be planned for 2007?
