Darksiders II Confirmed As Wii U Launch Title, Adds Enhanced Controls
Vigil Games has confirmed that Darksiders II will be a Wii U launch title. The lead designer, Hayden Dalton, stated that the game will accompany Nintendo’s newest console on launch day as a “day one” release.
The action-adventure title is being developed for all three major consoles but a specific team has been set aside to ensure that the Wii U version utilizes a unique control scheme. On the subject Dalton told Digital Spy:
That’s been very interesting to see what those guys are doing, and they’re making efforts to make sure we do use it in more than a slapdash way. It’s basically the core game, but then with added abilities to do certain things that you can’t do on the other consoles.
One of the things that we did, when we were originally going to show it off, was that you could equip stuff directly. So, for instance, I could be running along and I could click on another piece and I could put it on as I’m running through the game. That’s huge, it’s not breaking up the game in a way, I’m not going into a menu and assigning it, I’m literally just tapping as I’m playing.We’re not basically heavily changing the core game to support the control system, but the control system will be an enhancement of the core game.
Do you think Darksiders II will be able to show off the Wii U’s unique control scheme enough? Sound off in the comments section below.
