One of the best action role-playing games games of the previous generation has arrived on Nintendo Switch. Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition is available in physical stores and the Nintendo eShop for $29.99.
Darksiders 2 stars Death, one of the four horseman of the apocalypse. It’s a prequel (or side-quel) to the events of the first game, which starred War. Death traverses the underworld to prove his brother’s innocence, battling monsters and delving into dungeons with its more action-focused Zelda-like gameplay. The Darksiders series is also known for its comic book art style from artist Joe Madureira.
Darksiders 2 originally released in 2012 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with a remastered version, called The Deathinitive Edition, releasing in 2015 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Deathinitive Edition includes all the released DLC armor packs, updated balancing and loot, improved visual quality, and reworked level, character, and environmental graphics.
A third game, Darskiders 3, released last November by Gunfire Games, made up of several key developers of the original series. It starred Fury, the sole female horseman of the apocalypse and featured similar action-RPG gameplay. It was met with mixed reviews.
Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition is rated M for Mature for Blood and Gore, Suggestive Themes, and Violence.
