One of the many third-party games revealed for Wii U at E3 2011 was Darksiders II, and now developers Vigil Games have given Game Informer an insight into the game's development and how the team will use that new controller.

General manager David Adams and technical director Colin Bonstead revealed in a video interview that the team actually had Darksiders II running on Wii U hardware in time for the console's reveal at E3, but Nintendo chose not to use it, preferring instead to show footage of the game running on other consoles.

Adams and Bonstead don't seem to mind, though: both are full of praise for how easy the console is to get to grips with and Nintendo's technical support too, even though there were instances the Vigil team was discovering technical foibles even Nintendo hadn't encountered.

The full eight minute discussion is well worth a watch, so we've embedded it below:
