We really liked Wii U launch title Darksiders II; while it pays homage to the Zelda series, it adds its own unique flavour as a grittier take on the action-RPG dungeon crawler. We recently reported that a remastered Darksiders would be coming to the Wii U, too, as Nordic Games have taken over the reigns.

Nordic Games has now revealed that the game will be entitled Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, and will run at 30 FPS on the Wii U, while running at 60 FPS on the more powerful PS4 and Xbox One.

Here's the synopsis and feature list from Nordic Games:

Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell. In the slaughter that ensued, the demonic forces defeated the heavenly hosts and laid claim to the Earth.

Brought before the sacred Charred Council, War is indicted for his crimes and stripped of his powers. Dishonored and facing his own death, War is given the opportunity to return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible.

Hunted by a vengeful group of Angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance and vindication.
