Pelle Lundborg, co - founder of the studio has reportedly confirmed a remaster of Darksiders is being developed for Wii U, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Added original source, translated from spanish.
What bout PS4??Also theh need to fix the damn slow down on DS2!!
It's confirmed for all major platforms, just that only Nintendo-focused sites reported the release so far for US audience. Most sites that include the other consoles on their article's title are in german or italian, as Nordic seems to have confirmed the european release only. Couldn't find another option to upload.
Its being focused more on Nintendo sites because this game was never on a Nintendo platform before...just the sequel.
Nordic has released a few games on Wii U. CEO likes Nintendo a lot.
WiiU getting some love. Good I guess. Hope this is their way for creating a hype for eventual DarkSiders 3. FURY(3rd horsemen) as the female protagonist for the third game would make sense seeing how female leads are on the rise in gaming.
Im hoping they jump straight into a 4 player coop dark siders like vigil had planned
I hope the Wii U version comes with ALL of the DLC. Darksiders 2 didn't get the sales it deserved on Wii U due to some of it being missing. I'm hoping deep in one corner of my mind that that missing DLC for 2 will coincide with the release of the first game.
You could often see offers that put Darksiders II at whopping prices like 10 dollars. It should have sold a good amount of copies, to say the least.
It would be great if that were the case, but sadly the discounts, to my knowledge, didn't do enough to convince Wii U owners to adopt it en mass. And I can't blame them. Much as I love the game (and I bought it new on Wii U, keep in mind), without all the content, it's still the most inferior version in terms of replay value.
Well initially it didn't but I say it probably one of the best-selling third party game on Wii U considering it been discounted multiple time on eShop even going as low as $10.
it been discounted multiple time makes it more like a failure.
first game doesnt have any dlc
Wait, it doesn't? I could have sworn it did...
Never played the second but loved the original!
Oh man you gotta pick the second one up sometime if you get the chance. Amazing sequel.
Yes I will
Darksiders is a great series and all but remasters, remakes, and reboots need to stop. Just make something new please.
I think it's ok to remaster lesser known games. If it's mega budget AAA game that sold a bazillion copies last gen then yes I agree.
I have disagree.. BioShock: The Collection is my most anticipated game and I owned all 3 at their respective launches and played the hell out of them.. probably 40% of my purchases are remasters because I only own a PS4.. now we need Mass Effect Trilogy and I'll be satisfied..
@SolidGear Oh yes! ME2-3 can look real bad at times even on PC. An updated version with better texture and some new graphical effects would be nice. People'll buy the hell out of it, cuz even though the ending(s) was kinda shit the journey and characters were all top-notch.
Plenty of new games coming. They don't need to stop. You just need to keep avoiding them if you don't like them.
I do avoid them but I would rather companies work on something new that is all I am saying. This generation has become flooded with remakes, remasters, and reboots and it is becoming worse and worse. I willing to bet that this remaster will be overpriced like all the rest and I want to know will it receive all the hate that skyrim and the ultimate alliance games have received.
darksiders is one of my fav franchises but this remaster is not needed....but im ok with anything that gives us a chance to play a new entry in the series.
Just sitting here waiting for Darksiders 3 and a new Red Faction, cmon Nordic get your shit together.
I hope Red Faction returning is like Red Faction 2. Had a blast with that game on PS2.
I only played Guerilla which was a lot of fun because of the destruction. No game at the time matched it, hell few games today come close to it.
I actually hated Guerilla.. now Armageddon kicked ass! That game was so much fun! If they make another I hope it's either like that or the second game.
hopefully it's $30 or less for ps4. I bought the sequel on the ps store during their sales, don't want to play it until I replay the first. Still have it on my ps3 hard drive, but would rather wait for the improved remaster.
I will def buy this, wanted to play the two originally but i heard there were a lot of bugs. Wish it was on PC though
I liked this game more than the sequel. I feel the setting in the first game was darker since it was the ruins of cities and the after math of the apocalypse.
I heard the second game had way too much filler but I'll eventually get the remaster
A remaster no one asked for.
I did. So right there you're wrong.
I had a blast with this so I'll eventually get it
My favorite game of last gen? Remastered? Yes please.
WiiU version sounds good
I recently picked up both Darksiders 1 + 2 for my PS3, so I'm going to have to pass. I'd definitely buy a 3rd installment, but if it's production is contingent on the sales of this remaster (especially considering the second game was barely remastered, from what I've heard), that kind of sucks.
Enough with the remasters... 😒
Where's Darksiders III?
how about Darksiders 3 with co-op, since the story sucks
I don't see why they couldn't just release Darksiders 1+2 remastered together at the same time. At least the Wii U version of this game makes some sense to release now since the sequel was at its launch.
I just hope sales are good for this one and were good for the second remaster because I would love to see a part three.
Darksiders 2 was so good until that castle with the portal type puzzles. I lost interest at that point and never went back.
That part was easy. Game isn't very hard.
I'm definitely not saying if it was hard or easy, I didn't finish it...it just didn't fit with the rest of the game play so I just lost interest at that point. I hate when certain parts of games feel forced.
Shame because there was a great boss fight at the end
...hmmm, any price announced for the remaster yet? I suppose I could give it a another go since I am older and a bit more patient with change these days, lol.
Fantastic games, would not get remasters but would buy darksiders 3 on day 1.
That price needs to be "Remastered" to $29 or $39.
