Darksiders 2 dev: Wii U is easy to develop for

Darksiders 2 was one of the very first games announced for the Wii U, and its developer, Vigil Games, was one of the first developers to openly praise the new console from Nintendo.

Now they share some more praise for the Wii U, saying that it’s “surprisingly easy” to develop for. Vigil Games’ Haydn Dalton said in a recent interview:

“Technically, it’s one of the easier platforms to develop for. We had our core game up and running on it in a very short amount of time.”

He added that the team had no major problems developing the Darksiders 2 Wii U version, and that it was “surprisingly easy” to port the game to the new console.

Vigil Games has always been supportive of the Wii U, with the exception of one former employee who went on to bash the console, calling it “idiotic”.

Darksiders 2 will be a Wii U launch title on November 18. You can check out some of the first Wii U details of the game and a few screenshots here.
