Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition Nintendo Switch Port Gets Release Date

Darksiders 2 came out way back in 2012, and it’s impressive that the game still has life in it. The definitive, sorry, Deathinitive Edition of the game is now making its way on Nintendo Switch on September 26th. It comes with a whole bunch of downloadable content: Maker Armor Set, The Abyssal Forge, The Demon Lord Belial, Death Rides, Angel of Death, Deadly Despair, Shadow of Death, Mortis Pack, Rusanov’s Axe, Van Der Schmash Hammer, Fletcher’s Crow Hammer, Mace Maximus, and Argul’s Tomb.

The new trailer, which announces the port’s launch date, kinda shows you the overall feel of the game. It’s cartoonish, it’s over the top, and it goes for cool more than anything else. In the game, you play as Death, on a mission to clear the name of his brother, War, and also save the Earth. You know, normal horseman of the Apocalypse stuff. The only thing that gives me pause is that the video has some very noticeable stuttering. One can only hope that this is just an issue with the video, and not the game itself.

Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition originally launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One way back on October 27th, 2015. Back then, it cost $30, and still does. So, I would assume that the Switch port is going to cost the same. And, given that Darksiders 3 is… well, what it is, consider picking up this one to get a feeling of why people liked the franchise in the first place. I really hope it runs better than the video.
