Platform release to feature unique enhanced controls

Darksiders II has been confirmed as a launch title for the Wii U. Courtesy of Digital Spy, Hayden Dalton of Vigil Games (lead designer for the sequel) has stated that the title will be available on “day one” for the console.

Additionally it was also revealed that a small team is working on ensuring that the unique controller is put to good use. Dalton stated that “they’re making efforts… [to] use it in more than a slapdash way”. For example, the team have made changing equipment on the fly much easier thanks to the touch screen, in a similar fashion to what many predicted a Wii U Zelda would utilise. Dalton praised the convenience of this. “It’s not breaking up the game [with a menu]… I’m literally just tapping as I’m playing”.


However, Dalton did stress that they’re not changing the core gameplay to fit the controller, but rather using the controller to enhance what is already there.

Darksiders II will be available for Wii U at launch. Let’s hope Nintendo fill us in on just when that is.
