Darksiders: Warmastered marks a last hurrah for the Wii U

Look what just arrived in the post!


Sir Gaulian has been banging on about how good Darksiders is for years, so I finally decided to try it for myself. I initially dismissed the game as a bit emo for my tastes – the ‘LOOK AT ME I’M SAD AND ANGRY’ stylings of try-hard sequel Prince of Persia: Warrior Within sprang to mind – but I’m told it’s more like Zelda than anything else, and that pretty much sold it to me.

The fact that THQ Nordic is releasing this remastered edition on Wii U at all is something of a surprise. It comes seven years after the original game and seven months after the release of Warmastered on Xbox One and PS4, not to mention a good five months or so after the announcement that Nintendo has ceased production of the Wii U. It’s likely to be one of the last boxed releases for Nintendo’s retiring console.

But by all accounts, it’s an excellent game to go out on.
