Darksiders 2 Wii U Edition To Get Bonus Content

By   /   Sep 13, 2012


Darksiders 2 for the Wii U is getting a pretty good deal. For free, upon purchasing the game, you’ll also get Argul’s Tomb, the first DLC for the game.

You can also get this DLC on the other platforms, but it’ll cost you money. Along with Argul’s Tomb, you’ll also get all the pre-order bonuses from other editions of the game. THQ claims that this will add an additional five hours of gameplay.

Personally, I think this decision is great on THQ’s part. They’re being generous with their content, while also not pissing off fans who bought the game on other platforms. Unlike Team Ninja, who’s releasing what amounts to basically “fixes” for Ninja Gaiden 3. Yet, these “fixes” are exclusive to the Wii U.

While they’re certainly making an effort to adapt Darksiders 2 to the Wii U, it doesn’t seem like they’re getting that much out of the controller. The screen will offer quick access inventory, while also displaying maps and objectives.

The Wii U’s gyro functionality will also come into play, when dodging enemy attacks, interacting with objects, and riding sequences.
