Vigil Discuss Wii U Controller Ideas

by

Colin Banstead from Vigil, discusses some ideas he’s had on how to implement the Wii U controller’s unique features into Darksiders 2…


“One thing I saw at the [E3] press conference that I thought would be cool is using the controller as a kind of AR thing. Because we’ve got a mechanism in the game where you throw stuff. In the first Darksiders game, you’d have to pick something up and throw it at a target. It’s always a little difficult to use a joystick to aim precisely and you could have it so as you picked up the [Wii U] controller it would sense when it was held up in front of you and it would turn into a display showing you what was on the screen, and you’d move the target with the controller.” – Colin Banstead, Vigil
