Reminder: ‘Darksiders II’ Plays A Little Differently on the Wii U (Plus Screens)

Oh, yeah, Vigil’s port of Darksiders II onto the Wii U has some added bells and whistles beyond what’s included with the other current gen console and PC versions of the action-adventure game. While some of the second screen stuff doesn’t sound like it would justify a double dip for anyone who’s already picked up Darksiders II, it might just make it the version to get if you’re looking to take on Death’s journey for the first time.

First up, Darksiders II on the Wii U will include all of the DLC released to date for the game including the “Argul’s Tomb” challenges, the “Death Rides” side quest, and a trio of armor and weapon upgrades, one exclusive to Nintendo’s console.

Besides that, you’ll also be able to manage your inventory and abilities on the Wii U GamePad and Darksiders II will be one of the first titles come launch day to take advantage of the ability to play the game right on the controller.

Darksiders II is out on November 18th alongside the Wii U.
