Now a confirmed launch title
we do know that the Wii U is getting a lot closer to launch. Word comes from Vigil Games via lead designer Hayden Dalton that Darksiders II is a confirmed day one launch title for the platform. Word is that it isn’t a direct port of the version that is coming for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC platforms.
While Dalton does not get too deep into explaining all of the unique features on the Wii U version, he does mention that it will use the Wii U’s touchscreen controller. Dalton says, “It is basically the core game, but then with added abilities to do certain things that you can’t do on the other platforms.”
While we expect to get a preview of most of the launch slate for the Wii U at E3, sources in the development community tell us that there are several other surprise title conversions that are slated to be headed to the Wii U; and some of those are titles that we might not have expected to appear on the platform.
