With the release of Nintendo Switch last month, things are not going too well for Wii U. While the console received The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as its latest major game addition, other new options seem to be scarce Thankfully, owners would be pleased to know that there are lots of new games arriving soon.
Previously, it was noted that Darksiders Warmastered Edition would be arriving at Wii U after its launch to other platforms. Apparently, the release of Nintendo Switch and the developers not dropping any hints suggest a cancellation of the initial plan. However, it was announced today that the game would still arrive on the Wii U this coming May 23.
For those who are uninitiated, Darksiders Warmastered Edition is a remastered version of the original 2010 release. The remaster arrived on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last year which runs at 1080p and 60fps in all the three platforms. However, it has been noted that Wii U owners will settle at 30fps when the game launches. The Wii U version of the game would cost for $19.99.
Furthermore, the remaster process of the series was interesting as the game's sequel received a remastered version first. Darksiders II remastered was released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One back in 2015 through Definitive Edition. The remaster features many visual improvements to the game similar to other remastered versions, as per Attack of the Fanboy.
On other news, the possibility of having a third Darksiders game has been a topic for several years already. However, the project was suspended due to financial complications. Back in 2012, THQ filed for bankruptcy, which resulted to auctioning its Darksiders IP. It was later revealed that Nordic Games purchased the IP that resulted to a remastering process of the two game titles. Many are hoping that the sales on the remasters would be strong enough to develop interest regarding Darksiders 3.
