Vigil Games Crafts A Fitting Tribute To The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword

On its Facebook page, Vigil Games says it made the artwork as a tribute to one of its favorite video games, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Since its inception in 2005, the developer made two games – Darksiders and Darksiders II – both of which were inspired by The Legend of Zelda series.

Vigil deserves a new home.
No one picked them up, which boggles the mind.

I agree. This is the one main thing that pissed me off about the auction.

Manchild2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

@chuk5, check out the link below. It seems that Platinum Games is interested in the Darksiders franchise so it might just end up purchasing it or the entire Vigil games.

@relientk77, Vigil was actually working on a totally new type of game. It was codenamed "Crawler". Here's what THQ president Jason Rubin had to say about the game: "When the teams got together recently to show each other their titles, Crawler dropped the most jaws."

That talent will land somewhere though..but yea would be nice to see a studio stick together.

Firefwy2830d ago

Investors/publishers want to buy studios and IPs that make money. Unfortunately, Darksiders II lost money for Vigil and THQ, which is why I suspect they weren't purchased at auction.

I think potential buyers are simply waiting for the price to come down. There's just way too much talent there for the whole studio to close shop.

Kennytaur2830d ago

It's also because they were in early development of a new IP, which meant a publisher would have to pay them for developing a couple of years and then for marketing. Seeing how Vigil only has two games in their belt, it would be a huge risk for a company to buy them.

But it is a real shame as I had high hopes for the studios future.

Instigator2830d ago

I'd buy Vigil if I had the money...:/

llMurcielagoll2830d ago

I just hope that Vigil would be bought by a good publisher some day, anything but those fat vulture EA hellbillies.

ironfist922829d ago

I was hoping Ubisoft would snatch em up, Darksiders is a fitting game for their line of franchises

llMurcielagoll2829d ago

@Ironfist92 Indeed! Ubisoft would make a great home for Vigil games.

Will just have to wait and see.

Knight_Crawler2829d ago

What really boggles my mind is why can'nt anyone make a good Zelda clone.

Zelda is my favorite franchise in the world but I am starting to get sick of how Nintendo has been handling it latly.

Sure Zelda was never about graphics, story telling or voice acting but I feel like Zelda needs to make a bold move into the next gen era and wow us with awesome graphics and an actual story with Link finally speaking...this and the awesome gamplay and universe that makes Zelda what is would be my dream come through.

If Nintendo does not want to move forward with Zelda then someone should make a clone with everything I mentioben...I dont care if Nintendo fanboys want to call it it a clone as long as it play like Zelda I will buy it.

Okami HD.. Zelda perfected

ElectricKaibutsu2829d ago

Okami was great. I don't know why you specified the HD verson, but anyway. Okami didn't fix one of the big issues Knight_Crawler pointed out, the wolf didn't talk either. Personally I don't care if Link talks. I wouldn't mind voice acting for the supporting characters though.

humbleopinion2829d ago

Okami, Kameo, Fable, Darksiders

IAmLee2829d ago

I've never actually played zelda. -__-

Although I do have windwaker and ocarina of time for gamecube..

Vigil's a pretty awesome dev. I liked both Darksiders and Darksiders II quite a lot; this is just the icing on the cake.

EddieNX 2830d ago

Darksiders 1 and 2 are amazing games , that apocalyptic difficulty has you at the edge of your seat.

It's extremely sad that The main dev we all wanted safe from THQ dissolving looks the one to going down the shitter :( .

At least relic got the right home at Sega but stil...

Skate-AK2829d ago

I thought Darksiders was easy on apocalyptic diffculty personally. I only died twice. Ended up getting the Platinum trophy last night.

BanBrother2829d ago


Did you use a rubber band for the platinum? (Darksiders fans KNOW what I'm talking about. And yes... I did).

Relientk772830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

I would love to see what else Vigil has up its sleeve, Darksiders 3, and a new IP?

TheBardsSong2830d ago

I guess you didn't hear the news... :(

pr0t0typeknuckles2830d ago
