Vigil lead designer Haydn Dalton says that Wii U is actually surprisingly easy to develop for. Dalton claims that technically Wii U is one of the easiest platforms out of the three to work with. He went on to say that porting Darksiders 2 to the console was a quick and painless process. Darksiders 2 is a Wii U launch title, and is therefore due to be released in North America on November 18th.
“Technically, it’s one of the easier platforms to develop for. We had our core game up and running on it in a very short amount of time. There were no major problems for us developing the Wii U version, other than making sure we had a dedicated team to do it justice. For a new platform, it was surprisingly easy to port it to the Wii U.”
