The Wii U edition of Darksiders Warmastered Edition finally has a release date of May 23rd. This contradicts speculation that this version was cancelled, and thus the original Darksiders comes to the Wii U with newly updated visuals and improved performance, for the bargain price of $19.99 USD.

Despite the late release date for a Wii U retail game, publisher THQNordic says that there are no current plans for a Switch port of Darksiders, but that may change in the future.

Darksiders Warmastered Edition is an updated port of the 2010 original, developed by Vigil Games and published by THQ. The enhanced port was released last November on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam. Incidentally, the sequel Darksiders 2 was released on Wii U as a launch game in 2012. The port of the original Darksiders was delayed as THQNordic was having trouble optimizing the game for the Wii U hardware.
