Developer Vigil Games confirmed in an interview that Darksiders II is launching on the Wii U day one.

Speaking to Digital Spy, lead designer Hayden Dalton said the Wii U version is being developed alongside the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. There's a small team dedicated to creating unique input mechanics for Nintendo's tablet-style controller.

"One of the things that we did, when we were originally going to show it off, was that you could equip stuff directly," he said. "So, for instance, I could be running along and I could click on another piece and I could put it on as I'm running through the game.

"That's huge, it's not breaking up the game in a way, I'm not going into a menu and assigning it, I'm literally just tapping as I'm playing."

Dalton added, "We're not basically heavily changing the core game to support the control system, but the control system will be an enhancement of the core game."
