The remastered Darksiders is still coming to Wii U

With the Wii U effectively dead — leading some developers to cancel games for that platform in favor of a Nintendo Switch release — owners of Nintendo’s now-last-gen console shouldn’t expect much in the way of new releases. But Wii U owners still have one remaster, Darksiders Warmastered Edition, coming their way.

Publisher THQ Nordic confirmed today that, yes, despite what you might have heard, the Wii U version of Darksiders Warmastered Edition will be here soon: May 23, to be specific. Darksiders Warmastered Edition will cost $19.99 when it’s released on Wii U next month.

“With spring arriving in the northern hemisphere, players can look forward to all new cooperative social gameplay experiences in Pokémon Go that will give Trainers new and exciting reasons to get back into the sunshine,” the company wrote in a blog post that rounded up many of Pokémon Go’s critical achievements.

Peter Moore recalls the last straw that convinced him to leave Sega

Peter Moore’s time as the head of Sega of America turned sour with the death of the Dreamcast, but it wasn’t until a later meeting with the company’s Japanese brain trust — and a heated argument with Sonic the Hedgehog developer Yuji Naka — that he realized the gaming industry was leaving Sega behind.

In a wide-ranging interview with Glixel, Moore looked back on his career — including nearly two decades in the game industry — as he prepares for a new challenge: the dream job of running his favorite sports team. Liverpool FC announced in late February that Moore will become the club’s CEO this summer; he is currently the chief competition officer at Electronic Arts, heading up the company’s esports efforts.

Persona 5 moves 1.5M copies, days after worldwide release

It seems like years of waiting around for Persona 5 has done some good for the highly acclaimed role-playing game. Atlus announced that the game has shipped 1.5 million copies worldwide, only a few days after its launch in North America and Europe.

It’s important to remember the distinction between shipped and sold, but this is still a milestone for the Persona franchise. Atlus didn’t say how many of these copies went to North America and Europe specifically, but Persona 5 reached 550,000 copies shipped in Japan alone back in October. The game launched there on Sept. 15.
