Vigil Games, the development team behind the long-awaited Darksiders 2, has revealed to Digital Spy that the game is still firmly on track to launch alongside the Wii U when it launches sometime after June this year. Darksiders 2 lead designer Hayden Dalton also spoke about the benefits the Wii U controller will have when switching items. Here’s what Dalton had to say about the game:
Lead designer Hayden Dalton has said that the action-adventure sequel will be available “day one” on Nintendo’s new console when it launches.
“That’s been very interesting to see what those guys are 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.”
“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 be running along and I could click on another piece and I could put it on as I’m running through the game,” he revealed.
“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.”
