Developer Vigil Games has confirmed that Darksiders II, the upcoming action-title from THQ will be bringing players straight to hell through the Wii U's tablet controller. Lead designer Hayden Dalton has confirmed that the game will be on store shelves next to the Wii U on launch day:
[It's] been very interesting to see what [the small internal team dedicated to the Wii U is] 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.It sounds like Darksiders II will use the touch screen for controls and inventory, although Dalton wasn't keen on sharing exact details:
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 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.Hopefully third parties will have their games up for demo opportunities as we near E3 so we can see exactly what's working and what's not working with the Wii U's tablet controller.
Darksiders II is due out June 26th in North America for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, but no word yet on the launch date of the Wii U version.
