Darksiders II up and running on Wii U 5 weeks after receiving dev kits

“We have Darksiders II completely running on the Wii U right now, It took about five weeks. Coming into the show we were ready to go. We could have demonstrated it on the hardware but they [Nintendo] decided not to have full games shown in the booth But if you were to go into Vigil in Austin, Texas right now, Darksiders II is fully running on the new hardware. The Darksiders team was one of the first teams to get dev kits. We’ve had dedicated engineers on it working seven day weeks leading up to the show. I’ve got all the emails. We now have it running with the controller. So we could have shown it. Some of it is still in flux. There are still some improvements to be made to some parts of it.” -Danny Bilson

So five weeks to port over Darksiders II onto a new console. That is pretty impressive and it shows how even if it is a new platform, it is very easy to development games for, even if it is multiplatform, it will make things a lot easier for developers.
