Deus Ex: Human Revolution managed to find and captivate an audience full of gamers and critics alike when it released back in 2011, and Square Enix is hoping to shift the success of the almost two year-old title to the Wii U with Deus Ex: Human Revolution — Director’s Cut. After Amazon posted box art for the previously unannounced title, it became increasingly obvious that Square planned on bringing the hit cyborg series to Nintendo’s latest console.
Anyone who’s played the game probably isn’t interested in repurchasing something they put to rest many months ago, but Square promises that this version will be the definitive one — offering fans the premiere Deus Ex experience exclusively on the Wii U.
Some of the more predictable additions to the game comes from the unique GamePad controller. The Director’s Cut will allow users to make the most of the Wii U’s controller by enabling touch-screen hacking, interactive map editing, augmented sniping, volleying back handheld explosives, and several other features that have yet to be revealed. On top of all of this, there will also be a new MiiVerse community created for Deus Ex: Human Revolution — Director’s Cut.
Two previously downloadable missions are also being integrated into the overall story-arch of the game: Tong’s Rescue (a mission that was made available in Human Revolution‘s Augmented Edition) and the coveted Missing Link DLC. Of course, there are a few significant upgrades that’ll intrigue dedicated fans. According to Square Enix, the Wii U iteration will offer some worthwhile upgrades in the form of some much needed revamped boss battles, gameplay and combat balancing, enhanced artificial intelligence, and “striking visual improvements which make this edition the best looking and most immersive Deus Ex experience available.”
You didn’t read that incorrectly, Deus Ex: Human Revolution — Director’s Cut will be the best looking version of the game when finally hits the Wii U; beating out any other console. For a system that’s often criticized for only being as powerful as current-gen hardware, it’s reassuring to hear that there will be at least one game that looks graphically superior on a Nintendo console.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution — Director’s Cut is currently without a release date, but this particular version will remain exclusive to the Wii U.
