Vigil Games, the developer of THQ’s Darksiders franchise, has confirmed that Darksiders 2 will be a launch title for Nintendo’s still-unreleased console the Wii U.
This news has been shared by Lead Gameplay Designer Hayden Dalton and not only that, but the Wii U version will have a few features that will be unique to the console and its tablet controller. Dalton shared that they’re making efforts to make sure that they implement Wii U controls in “more than a slapdash way.”
While he couldn’t go into specifics regarding the control features, he did manage to share one example that may or may not make it into the final Wii U release.
“One of the things that we did, when we were originally going to show it off, was that you could equip stuff directly. So, for instance, I could be running along and I could click on another piece and I could put it on as I’m running through the game”
Darksiders 2 will be out this coming June 26 for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and now, the Wii U.
Before you ask, yes – I know Nintendo hasn’t revealed the Wii U’s release date, but if Darksiders 2 will be out on day one for the upcoming console, does this mean the Wii U will be out before June?
Your guess is as good as mine at this point.
