Vigil Games, the team behind Darksiders II on Wii U, has told GameReactor that Nintendo's new console isn't a huge technical leap over the Xbox 360 and PS3.

In a video interview, game director Marvin Donald told the site:

So far the hardware's been on par with what we have with the current generations. Based on what I understand, the resolution and textures and polycounts and all that stuff, we're not going to being doing anything to up-rez the game, but we'll take advantage of the controller for sure.

It might not completely kill off those rumours about Wii U being twice as powerful as Xbox 360, but at least we know Wii U suffer from the same watered-down HD ports as its 480p predecessor. We hope.
