Hmmmm. Dunno. I love Platinum and I love Darksiders but I'm worried they'd screw it up. They haven't tried the whole Zelda clone thing since Okami, not sure if they'd fall back into that groove or just make it an action game. For that matter, I worry about the art and plotline quite a bit.
I'm sure Platinum knows how to make more than one kind of game, guys. Remember Okami? Platinum rose from the ashes of the phoenix that was Clover Studios, and chances are they can make a Darksiders with goddamn Darksiders gameplay.
(Fast paced would be pretty cool too, though. It would be interesting for all the Horsemen to play differently.)
