THQ have confirmed that Darksiders II will be released as a Wii U Launch Title and will also contain addition content.
The Wii U version will come featuring content that is not featured on other formats. On the disc will come featuring the first DLC expansion, Argul’s Tomb, as well as all pre-order bonuses from other editions, adding around five hours of playable content and new legendary weapons and armor.
The game will take advantage of the Wii U GamePad, using the touch screen in order to display maps and objectives. It will also give players quick access to abilities and Death’s inventory. The Wii U’s gyro functionality will also be used in order to allow players to evade enemy attacks, manipulate objects in the world and steer their character during swimming and riding sequences.
Ryan Stefanelli, Producer of Darksiders II stated:
“We are delighted that Wii U owners will be able to experience the vast world of Darksiders II at launch. The unique Wii U GamePad adds a whole world of possibility that we will be taking advantage of in this title.”
