Gameplay wise it looks somewhat identical to Wii Sport Resort's fencing "story" mode. It does not looks as good but considering i really liked that mode in Wii Sport Resort I'm all for this:

Yes.
 
 
Edit: Of course it looks completely stupid and lame. But considering the greatness that is Wii Sports Resort swordplay, I will get this one on day 1.

Interview with developer Gevo Entertainment
 

  •  Generic "Ghost Queen wants to destroy the world and you must stop her" story
  • The game's producer describes it as a "Punch-Out!!-esque sword fighter on rails"
  • It was developed for MotionPlus from the start. MotionPlus is required.
  • There is some weapon leveling up
  • No multiplayer
  • The game is completely finished and they are just waiting for Nintendo to confirm their targeted release date, which is "soon".

Whoa.  For a second, from the description, I was wondering who would pay $50 for this game, but then the WiiWare logo popped up at the start of the trailer and suddenly I'm feeling much better about this game.

I'll get this on day 1, but I can't really blame anyone who won't.
