THQ Nordic will release Darksiders Genesis on Nintendo Switch, news that has leaked ahead of schedule thanks to an Amazon product listing.

This action-adventure game will introduce the horseman Strife for the first time, that, set before the events of Darksiders Warmastered Edition, will challenge both War and Strife to defeat Lucifer.

He plots to grant power to master demons throughout Hell, and it falls to the two horsemen to hunt them down.

“From the dawn of creation, The Council has maintained the Balance across existence,” the product description reads. “Carrying out their orders are The Horsemen, Nephilim (powerful beings spawned from the unnatural union of angels and demons) who have pledged themselves to the Council and been granted immense power.

“However, this power came at a tragic cost: the Horsemen were ordered to use their newfound strength to wipe out the rest of their kind. What followed was a bloody battle on Eden where the Horsemen, obeying the will of the Council, annihilated the Nephilim.

“Still reeling from the events on Eden, War and Strife have been given a new assignment – Lucifer, the enigmatic and deceptive demon king, has been plotting to upset the Balance by granting power to master demons throughout Hell. War and Strife must hunt down these masters, gather information, and ultimately fight their way through a tangled, demonic conspiracy that threatens to forever upset the Balance and unravel all of creation.”

Darksiders Genesis will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
