THQ's action-packed Wii U title Darksiders II will allow you to play the whole adventure on the GamePad, it has been revealed today.

Speaking to Polygon, a THQ employee said that although the version shown at the recent New York preview event didn't have the feature enabled, it would be making its way into the final release. Also included from day one will be the first batch of DLC called Argul's Tomb. Additional DLC will arrive next year via the Wii U eShop.

Haydn Dalton of developer Virgil Games previously hinted that the GamePad would be used in new ways - perhaps this is what he meant?

Darksiders II has been confirmed as a launch day title in North America.
