Vienna, AUSTRIA (27th February 2014) – Yes, they do still exist: amazing games for the WiiU! Nordic Games announced today the highly acclaimed Darksiders II has found its way back onto the European Nintendo eShop, after almost one year’s absence.

Alarmed by the end of days, Death, the most feared of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, embarks on a quest to save humanity and to clear his brother War’s name. On his journey, Death discovers that there are evils even more terrible than an earthly apocalypse, and is quickly drawn into a war between powers that could destroy all of creation…
