Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition Rumored For Switch

It’s been nearly four years since Darksiders II: Deathinitive edition was released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and now it looks like the Nintendo Switch could be added to that list of platforms this game is available on.

The Deathinitive edition of this 2012 action-RPG game was a remastered version of the 2012 release. It tells the tale of Death, on a mission to absolve his brother War of the crimes of wiping out humanity.

The company, Kock Media, which THQ Nordic recently acquired back in February, has seemingly launched an official distribution page for the Nintendo Switch version of the game a little early.

The listing clearly states the Nintendo Switch as the release platform, in both the description and product title while listing THQ Nodic GmbH as the publisher of the release.

While this product listing does not confirm a North American release, nor really a European release it does seem to confirm a previous listing by EB Games that stated the game would be coming to the Switch in the future.

The details page at the Koch Media website has the title listed at €29,99 for a Europe launch on August 6th, 2019 with a USK rating of 16 and older. This tends to confirm that if this game is actually released, it will see a physical release.

The details page on EBGames.com puts the North American release on August 30th at a price point of $29.99. It also lists an ESRB rating of M for Mature. These could be a placeholder price, rating and date for a possible announcement during Nintendos E3 Direct presentation in June.

The first Darksiders just saw a worldwide physical release on the Switch recently, which would bode well for a possible release of the second game in the series.

This wouldn’t be the first time that THQ Nordic has had an issue with leaking a Darksiders game, the aforementioned first game was leaked when someone at THQ Nordic accidentally uploaded the trailer for the first title to the media asset website before it was promptly removed.
