Following today’s slew of Wii U announcements, the console’s launch window is slowly starting to fill. Alongside first party software and a decent spread of exclusives are a number of re-releases getting the Wii U treatment, including THQ’s Darksiders II.
The Vigil Games’ joint, which released last month on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, is due to launch on the new Nintendo platform sometime after its arrival in late November. Darksiders II will make use of the consoles quirky gamepad, allowing players to adopt gyro-enabled motion controls during specific gameplay segments. The touchscreen can also be used for item management .
What’s most intriguing about the Wii U version is the “5+ hours of additional gameplay” included. Those who pick up this particular iteration of the hack n’ slash dungeon crawler will have instant access to the game’s first expansion, Argul’s Tomb, as well as every pre-order bonus from the PC/console versions.
