Darksiders II for Wii U packs extra content

Launches alongside the Wii U on Nov. 18.

We already knew Darksiders II would be a Wii U launch title when the system launches on Nov. 18. Today, we also know the Wii U version of Vigil Games' adventure title will pack about five hours of extra content, according to a Game Informer report.

THQ says Darksiders II on Wii U will not only include the yet-to-be-released Argul's Tomb downloadable content, but also include pre-order bonuses for other versions of the game. That'll make up the five extra hours of gameplay THQ is touting, but that's not all! Wii U players will also be treated to new legendary weapons and armor in their version.

Aside from this extra content, Darkiders II on Wii U will take advantage of the Wii U GamePad and let players use the pad's touchscreen to display the game's map and list of objectives, as well as use motion controls to manage Death's evasion and swimming abilities.

So if you like your Darksiders II with a little more content and waggle, the Wii U version sounds like it might be right up your ally.
