Vigil, the development team behind Darksiders 2 have stated that the Wii U is easy to develop for. The team say that the ease of development on Wii U is similar to that of the Xbox 360 which is renowned as being a simple console to develop for. Great news for those developers looking to bring their projects to Wii U.
“From a pure programmer point of view, it’s definitely a lot easier than, say, the PS3 was. It’s probably on par with 360 as far as ease of API, simplicity of how you interact with the hardware.”
“[On Wii U] we were literally finding things and telling Nintendo about them. ‘Hey how does this work?’ ‘Well, I don’t know.’ So we were finding the solutions ourselves sometimes. It was kind of like a new frontier.”
FUCK YEA WII U!I CANT WAIT!

Isn’t Darksiders a clone of God of War.
Both God of War and Legend of Zelda
so its not really a clone then
Not a ‘clone’ just borrows the gameplay of GoW and the puzzle-lie atmosphere of Loz
This is good news, should mean more 3rd party games.
Easy doesn’t always mean better….. Just saying.
That wouldn’t be Nintendo’s fault though…it depends on the developer to make good use of the “easy to make for” console.
Easy to develop means developers will be more willing to create IP’s for it
Generally though, the easier it is to use, the easier it’ll be for developers to get their ideas into games the way they want to, without as many hiccups or loss in time. So in other words, it just lets developers develop how they want to without much drawbacks. So it really is then down to them how their game turns out.
Love it! Can’t wait for the Wii-U. It’ll be mind blowing and I’m glad it’s easy to develop games on.
Looking good Wii U.
This is the third time I’ve seen a post about the Darksiders 2 creators saying that the Wii U is easy to develop for, and I’ve seen the “EA is loving Wii U’s online” post like 10. Well meh. I hope there’s news from Nintendo soon.

This is extremely old news, from around E3, but fantastic news either way.
If I recall correctly, it took less than 10 of them about 5 weeks to completely port, on a system that’s not even finished yet, let alone has proper documentation. It also took them a couple of lines of code to display the entire game not on the TV but on the controller.
Am I the only one who thinks they copied what Firemint did with the iPad/apple TV combo?
