Darksiders II a Wii U launch title, includes bonus content

Death comes to Nintendo's upcoming console.

Darksiders II will be a Wii U launch title, THQ has announced.

Released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC earlier this year, Darksiders II will release on Wii U with “around five hours of additional content”.

The console’s GamePad will allow players to access a map, track objectives, use abilities and manage Death’s inventory.

Additionally, the Wii U’s gyro functionality will let players dodge attacks, manipulate objects, and steer Death in the game’s swimming and riding sections.

“We are delighted that Wii U owners will be able to experience the vast world of Darksiders II at launch,” said Darksiders II Producer Ryan Stefanelli.

“The unique Wii U GamePad adds a whole world of possibility that we will be taking advantage of in this title.”

The Wii U will launch in North America on November 18, Europe on November 30 and Japan on December 8.
