The dungeon-crawling spin-off is heading to Switch!

The Darksiders franchise is getting a spin-off. Darksiders Genesis will take the Zelda inspired franchise into the realm of top down, loot driven RPGs. No official details have been given beyond a short teaser trailer, but Darksiders Genesis has been confirmed for a Switch release.

The trailer opens with the fourth horseman Strife, likely as a tease to Darksiders 4. After a brief pre-rendered segment, a few quick shots of gameplay are shown. It appears to be a multiplayer dungeon crawler in the same style as Diablo. Darksiders has previously released on Switch in the form of Darksiders Warmastered Edition, and rumors of a Darksiders 2 port have been growing more prevalent recently. According to IGN who broke the story, Darksiders Genesis will be playable at E3 next week.

What?  Darksiders 16-bit demake coming out exclusive to the Genesis Mini?  That sounds awesome. Count me in.

Now that would get me to buy one.

So we have Darksiders 1 on Switch and 2 and Genesis are coming. Wondering if they will eventually get 3 over as well.

I would be all over this if I didn't already have Diablo 3, but who knows, maybe it will differentiate itself somehow.

I’ve only completed the first one, and if that’s any indication, the only differences are over-designed, try-hard characters and an equally try-hard story.

The gameplay was fine; everything surrounding it was distracting to the point where it was difficult to take seriously. I’ve never really played the Diablo series so I don’t know how that compares. Blizzard makes some pretty cutscenes though.
