Darksiders II developer on Wii U

Vigil Games, the developer behind THQ’s upcoming Darksiders II, are enthusiastic about Wii U. Speaking to Game Informer, general manager David Adams said that Nintendo has so far been very supportive, providing the studio early access kits for bringing the upcoming action RPG to Wii U.

According to Adams, the system’s easier to develop for than PlayStation 3.

“You can tell the way the software is organized, the way the APRs are writen, that very shortly, it will become a pretty easy platform to develop for,” said Adams.

“Personally, I don’t really get into the what’s easier and that, but definitely from a pure programmer point of view, it’s definitely a lot easier than say, the PS3 was. It’s probably on par with like, the 360, as far as just ease of APIs, simplicity of how you interact with the hardware, and that sort of thing.”
