Darksiders II Wii U features under a “strict gag order”

Nintendo won’t let Vigil boast about the fun it’s having with the Wii U version of Darksiders II until after E3.

“Nintendo’s put a full gag on everything until E3,” creative manager Jeremy Greiner told Vooks.

“If I didn’t have a strict gag order on me, I’d love to talk about all the great features that we have. but what I can tell you is that it’s a next generation platform, and you should keep your eyes open.”

Greiner did manage to spill a small hint, where “small” may be read as “miniscule”.

“We’ll obviously be using the unique controller that it has to its utmost potential,” he said.

“But speaking to specific features or tech effects – well, that’s in Nintendo’s playground right now. And I know that they have plans for E3.”

Darksiders II is due on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in August, but the Wii U version remains undated. We sent Sam to take a look at it recently; check out loads of new gameplay footage through here.
