Darksiders iii

Darksiders III is finally headed to Nintendo Switch next month, THQ Nordic has announced.

After initially launching for PS4 and Xbox One back in November 2018, the game – a sequel to Darksiders II – will launch on Nintendo's platform on 30th September 2021. On top of the digital edition, it's also being treated to a physical release, arriving in select retail stores on the same day.

Players return to an apocalyptic planet Earth in Darksiders III, a hack-n-slash action-adventure where players take on the role of FURY in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins. The Charred Council calls upon FURY to battle from the heights of heaven down through the depths of hell in a quest to restore the balance between good and evil and prove that she is the fiercest of the FOUR HORSEMEN.

FURY is a mage, her form evolving throughout gameplay and with it, her powers and weaponry. The expansive Darksiders III game world is presented as an open-ended, living, free-form planet Earth, dilapidated by war and decay, and overrun by nature. FURY will traverse back and forth between environments, battling other-worldly creatures and unlocking puzzles while advancing the Darksiders story.

Our chums at Push Square awarded the PS4 version of the game a 6/10 score, praising its "great protagonist and undemanding combat systems," but feeling that it was "a step behind other modern action games" available on the platform.

The Switch version will include both the Keepers of the Void and The Crucible DLCs as standard, and will be priced at 39.99€ / USD 39.99 / £ 34.99.

Excited for this one? Let us know in the usual place.
