Darksiders 2 will be a Wii U launch title later this year, and developer Vigil Games has given a few more details on how the Wii U GamePad controller will be used. Speaking to game site Push Square, Vigil Games’ Haydn Dalton said that they are very happy the way the Darksiders 2 Wii U version is progressing and that they’re getting the most out of the new features the console has to offer.
“We’re going to use it [Wii U tablet controller] from an inventory point of view. That’s all we’ve talked about. Allowing players to access stuff on the fly rather than jumping in and out of the menu, they can actually see the choices right there on the GamePad.”
Dalton added that inventory management is just “one small part” of their work on the GamePad controller, so it’s likely that we’ll see more features. Vigil recently released some new Darksiders 2 screenshots, showing off the inventory system and the dark art style of the game. Darksiders 2 is a hack-and-slash action adventure title that will be coming out next month on current gen systems, and later this Fall on the Wii U as a launch title.
Despite the support from developers and publishers are showing for the Wii U, Nintendo still technically forbids third parties to release any major details of their Wii U games. This includes even screenshots and videos. The media embargo will likely be lifted once Nintendo announces the Wii U price and launch date in September.
