If the rumored North American release date for Bayonetta proves true, we could be looking at a definite action battle in the early part of January.
Why? Because THQ has just announced that their long-awaited and highly anticipated action/adventure title, Darksiders , is slated to arrive in the US for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 5. It'll be available in Europe a few days later. Developed by Vigil Games, this is a game that has been on our radar for quite some time and although it was expected to hit store shelves this fall, THQ clearly wanted to give the designers some extra time. It features the art style of revered comic book artist Joe Madureira, and you will step into the large boots of War, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. The setting is the earth – or a fantastical earth, rather – a century after the prophecies of the biblical tragedy come true. It'll be your job to restore balance between Heaven and Hell as demons and all sorts of nasties traverse the battle-torn earth, lost and intent on wreaking havoc.

It looks like a healthy dose of over-the-top brutality in all respects, and as we just said, if Bayonetta also launches on the 5th, action aficionados may have a tough decision to make. Would you rather control the sleek, sexy witch or the muscular, bad-ass dude that kinda reminds us of Gears of War ? Well, it'll probably all come down to reviews, now won't it?
