The Darksiders II release for the Wii U is not only a launch title for when the system hits on November 18, this version also includes five hours of extra content, THQ claims.

THQ says the Wii U version has additional bonus-content not included with other formats. Included on the disc will be the first DLC expansion, Argul’s Tomb, as well as all pre-order bonuses from other editions. The publisher says this adds "around five hours of playable content" in addition to new legendary weapons and armor.

Darksiders II on Wii U uses the touch screen to display map and objectives and gives quick access to abilities and inventory. The Gamepad's gyro functionality allows players to evade enemy attacks, manipulate objects in the world, and steer Death when swimming.
