Platinum Games Shows Interest In The Darksiders Franchise

Atsushi Inaba, the head of Platinum games, tweeted that he may be interested in snatching up the rights to Darksiders.

The report comes from Kotaku, which translated the Japanese tweet from Inaba. It reads, "In THQ studio and IP selling off auction, Darksiders is unsold? [We] wanna buy it...on the cheap..."

This shouldn't be taken as a legitimate bid on the franchise, but the idea of a Platinum Games/Vigil mash-up on Darksiders certainly sounds interesting. Also, anything to keep Darksiders going long enough for this to happen has to be a good thing.
