In case you haven’t been paying attention for a while, the Nintendo Wii U is just a few months away from amazing us with the first new console generation. As more games get confirmed, THQ announced that Darksiders II will be a launch title for the novel platform.
To make this version extra special, the publisher announced that the release of the Wii U edition will contain the first DLC expansion called Argul’s Tomb, as well as jamming all the preorder bonuses on there. This allegedly adds 5 extra hours of unique gameplay, as well as a bunch of legendary equipment.
Additionally, the game will work closely with the GamePad to offer new ways to play the game. For instance, the touchscreen will display the map and objectives and give quick access to Death’s inventory. Hopefully this will remedy the sometimes finicky switches between skills as well. The system’s gyroscope will allow players to dodge attacks and will steer them while swimming or riding. Producer Ryan Stefanelli mentioned: “The unique Wii U GamePad adds a whole world of possibility that we will be taking advantage of in this title.” We hope that’s true. It could be interesting to see what Death can do with the climbing platform element in the game, using the GamePad. The small freerunning aspect opens it up for some skillful leaps, though that is already excellently presented in the original release.
