Darksiders 2 out summer 2012

"It is also anticipated to be a launch title for Wii U," says THQ.

Darksiders 2 launches in summer 2012, THQ has confirmed.

The PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions launch then, THQ said alongside the release of a new trailer, below.

"It is also anticipated to be a launch title for Wii U," the company confirmed. Nintendo has said the Wii U will launch at some point between April and the end of 2012. It plans to show off the Wii successor's final form factor at E3 2012 in June.

Death takes over from War as the lead character in Darksiders 2.

The sequel's story runs parallel with that of the acclaimed 2010 adventure, and sees Death embark on a quest to redeem his brother - the aforementioned War - and save mankind.
