Vigil Games' upcoming sequel starring Death, Darksiders II, is a pretty brutal, "hardcore" game. Nintendo has traditionally had a problem with those. So it's pretty encouraging to find out that Darksiders II will be a launch title when the Wii U releases in 2012.
I just wonder how Nintendo will feel about a game that gives homage/rips off Zelda as much as it does? Ah, screw it, I'm just excited about Nintendo courting a variety of third-party publishers, for once.
