Amazon Leaks Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut for Wii U

Square-Enix’s mystery Wii U game may have been let out of the bag a bit sooner than intended… and no, it isn’t a brand-new game. It’s another late port, this time of 2011′s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, developed by Eidos Montreal. The game adds “improvements, features, and additional content,” including Wii U-exclusive GamePad features in the form of the “neural hub,” but so far we don’t really know what those features are.

I’ll be honest, I feel a bit cheated by yet another hyped-up late port. I believe it’s even the latest one yet, beating out Batman Arkham City, which released in November 2011. It’d be great if companies were thinking of bringing entire series lines that Wii owners might have missed out on all at once; releasing standalone games more than a year later – in this case, coming up on two years later – just doesn’t seem to cut it.

The game is pegged for a May 7 release. You can check out the full description and box artwork by clicking below.

    I don’t mind. This game somehow went under my radar (a friend told me about it a few weeks ago) and I’ve been meaning to get it.In fact I was thinking on getting the game for the Xbox this week! Seems like I’m going to hold out for the Wii U release.

      I actually think it’s probably gonna be a really cool, really good Wii U port, and will probably pick it up myself personally (and review it if no one else feels like it).

      I just think it’s not the correct move to get in Wii U owners’ good books. Wait for an article later that explains what I mean.

    A press release read off a few details including reworked boss battles and enemy AI along with developer commentaries and in game guides.

    Changes like these are more important to me than control and graphical enhancements. I would like to see the endings extended. The game has a very “tell don’t show” way about it. There’s a lot of good subtlety because of that, but it wasn’t highly engrossing for a resolution.
