We already had an idea that Darksiders II would be a Wii U launch title, after all it’s was seen as part of the console line-up when the Wii U was first revealed. Now, however its been confirmed.
Speaking in an interview with DigitalSpy, lead designer Hayden Dalton said that the game would be on the console from day one. Perhaps more importantly, is that he says it’ll have features unique to Nintendo’s new console.
“It’s basically the core game, but then with added abilities to do certain things that you can’t do on the other consoles,” he explained.
“One of the things that we did, when we were originally going to show it off [at E3 2011], 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.
“That’s huge. It’s not breaking up the game in a way, I’m not going into a menu and assigning it, I’m literally just tapping as I’m playing.
“We’re not basically heavily changing the core game to support the control system, but the control system will be an enhancement of the core game.”
Darksiders II is due for release this June on PS3 and Xbox 360. We expect the Wii U version to follow later this year.
