The Wii U version of Darksiders II will release as one of the system’s launch titles, Vigil’s Hayden Dalton has told Digital Spy.

Dalton confirmed the info at a recent event for the action effort in Amsterdam earlier this month.

He also talked about the game uses Wii U’s strengths.

“One of the things that we did, when we were originally going to show it off, was that you could equip stuff directly. So, for instance, I could be running along and I could click on another piece and I could put it on as I’m running through the game,” he said.

“That’s huge, it’s not breaking up the game in a way, I’m not going into a menu and assigning it, I’m literally just tapping as I’m playing.”

Darksiders II launches this June for PS3, 360 and PC. Get five minutes of new footage of it here.

Wii U will launch in major regions by this Christmas.
