Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition is coming to Switch, as we previously reported. Now, we have an exact date, it is the 26th of September. This was announced by publisher THQ Nordic and developer Gunfire Games. Both the physical and digital copies will be released then.
The Deathinitive Edition first came to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 2015. This was followed by PC in November 2015. The original game launched for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on August 2012, followed by Wii U on November 2012.
Here is an overview of the game, via THQ Nordic:

Darksiders 2 was a breakout success. However, Darksiders 3 didn’t match up. It performed poorly and didn’t manage to sell enough copies. But despite that, a prequel to the trilogy has been planned. The gameplay looks promising.
Let’s see if the game upon release is good enough to make us go back to the heaven and hell world of Darksiders.
