THQ Nordic issued a press release earlier today confirming that Darksiders Warmastered Edition is indeed coming to the Wii U. It is currently slated for release on May 23 and will be $19.99 USD/EUR, 14.99 GBP. This is the remaster of the original Darksiders title with HD resolution and performance improvements.
Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell. In the slaughter that ensued, the demonic forces defeated the heavenly hosts and laid claim to the Earth.
Some of the key features for Darksiders: Warmastered Edition include:
Apocalyptic Power - Unleash the wrath of War, combining brutal attacks and supernatural abilities to decimate all who stand in your way.
Extreme Arsenal - Wield a devastating arsenal of angelic, demonic and Earthly weapons; and blaze a trail of destruction atop Ruin, War’s fiery phantom steed.
Epic Quest - Battle across the wastelands and demon-infested dungeons of the decimated Earth in your quest for vengeance and redemption.
Character Progression - Uncover powerful ancient relics, upgrade your weapons, unlock new abilities, and customize your gameplay style.
Battle Heaven and Hell - Battle against all who stand in your way - from war-weary angelic forces to Hell’s hideous demon hordes.
