On Tuesday, Darksiders Warmastered Edition Switch will be launching physically and digitally for Switch. Get a look at how the game holds up on the system with the following footage:

When Wii U had its unveiling at E3 2011, you may recall that a number of third-party developers and publishers announced a number of games for the platform. One of these was Darksiders II. Although that announcement went off without a hitch, what we didn’t know is that there were originally plans to have it be playable on Wii U during the same expo.

David Adams, who now works at Gunfire Games, recalled in a recent episode of the Game Informer Show about how a small team scrambled to get a demo build running in time for E3. Unfortunately, Nintendo decided against showcasing the game in a playable form at the last minute.
