Darksiders II will be a Wii U launch title

THQ has just informed me that Darksiders II will be a launch title for the Wii U as well as include extra content. The Wii U version of the game will include the first DLC expansion Argul’s Tomb, along with all the pre-order bonuses the other editions had. The game will also take advantage of the Wii U GamePad by using the touch screen to display goals, the map, and give faster access to the inventory and special abilities. Also with the new gyro abilities of the GamePad players will be able to evade enemy attacks and manipulate their character during riding and swimming sequences.

Ryan Stefanelli, Producer of Darksiders II commented: “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.”
