Last year when THQ imploded and its assets were auctioned off to the highest bidder, its newly released Darksiders 2 was removed from the Wii U eShop. The first round of auctions found the Darksiders 2 IP without a bidder and many thought the series was dead before a second round of auctions were announced. During this round, Nordic Games purchased the Darksiders 2 IP and has since restored the game to the eShop for virtual purchases.
If you were interested in picking up this game before but hadn’t done so, you’ll be able to find it in the eShop now. Curiously, the announcement of the game being returned to the eShop was prefaced with, “Yes they do still exist: amazing games for the Wii U.”
If you haven’t played Darksiders 2 yet, it feels like a cross between God of War combat and Legend of Zelda dungeon-solving. Despite the announcement of the return of Darksiders 2 to the Nintendo eShop, we don’t know if Nordic Games will be working on a Darksiders 3 game.
