One of this year's biggest fantasy video games hits the next-generation!
We've sort-of known this since E3, but it has now been confirmed: THQ's new fantasy epic Darksiders II will retail as a launch title for the new Nintendo WiiU console. The confirmation from the publisher marks a pivotal moment in the new hardware's marketing strategy in that no other launch titles had been previously confirmed to ship on day one alongside the WiiU. If you haven't heard of Darksiders, the series is basically a visually impressive hack-and-slasher where the Horsemen of Death are assigned brutal enemies from beyond to kill in the most violent and gruesome ways possible. The first entry showed a lot of potential for the franchise, so here's hoping that the sequel will fare just as well, if not better! Darksiders II lands on PS3 and 360 on June 29th, then on the WiiU this Winter at the console's launch.
