Darksiders II Coming to Nintendo’s Wii U
THQ today announced that the upcoming sequel to its award-winning Action/Adventure title, Darksiders, is scheduled for release on Nintendo’s Wii U in 2012.
The Wii Uversion of Darksiders II will take advantage of Nintendo’s innovative new hardware with implemented functionality for the revolutionary controller.
Darksiders II follows the exploits of DEATH, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in a weaving tale that runs parallel to the events in the original Darksiders game. This epic journey propels DEATH through various light and dark realms as he tries to redeem his brother WAR, the horseman who was blamed for prematurely starting the Apocalypse in Darksiders.
Travis Plane, Vice President of Global Brand Management commented:
“We are very excited about the potential Wii U offers and look forward to bringing Darksiders II to the Nintendo audience.”
Darksiders II is scheduled to be available for Wii U as well as console and PC in 2012. For more information check www.facebook.com/Darksiders.
