Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut Hacking into the Wii U
I know I don’t pay enough attention to you Wii U loyal out there. It’s not you, it’s me…and also partly because of Nintendo’s gimmicky cobbling of a console to which you’ve sworn allegiance. Video gaming is a war of preferences, though, and one gamer’s paperweight can be another gamer’s portal to limitless enjoyment. So I’ll bury my digital hatchet, choose diplomacy, and deliver news to you Wii U faithful (we’ll settle this later).
Shortly after a listing outed the title, today Square Enix confirmed plans to release a special Director’s Cut of 2011’s cyberpunk hit Deus Ex: Human Revolution especially for the Wii U. The Nintendo port earns Director’s Cut status by meshing two pieces of previously separate DLC — Tong’s Rescue and The Missing Link — into the ebb and flow of Human Revolution’s narrative.
Director’s Cut hugely capitalizes on the Wii U’s gamepad by converting mechanics like hacking, grenade throwbacks, sniping, and much more to the controller’s touchscreen. The game has been further augmented from its original release with improvements to spotty boss fights, AI, weapon balancing, and more.
Though the leaked date pointed to Director’s Cut hitting stores May 7th, Square Enix only offers up “soon.” Straight Right, the dev that brought Mass Effect 3 to the Wii U, is rumored to be reformatting Human Revolution. If sci-fi is your bag, you’re more than a little obliged to partake in this standout action-RPG.
