It seems the U.S. are getting preferred treatment with THQ confirming Darksiders 2 as a Wii U launch title, whilst Europe will be getting Darksiders 2 on the Wii U within the launch window. No word on a release for it on the Wii U in Japan as of yet.
The Wii U version of Darksiders 2 will come with the first DLC, Argul’s Tomb, on disc, plus all the pre-order bonuses from other editions. This means an extra 5 hours (approximately) of gameplay and new legendary armor and weapons at your disposal right out of the box.
Of course Darksiders 2 will also be utilising the Wii U Gamepad in order to bring up your map, inventory, objectives and give you quick access to Death’s special abilities all via the touch screen. The gyro functionality of the Gamepad will also allow for enemy evasion, object manipulation and character steering during swimming and riding sequences.
