*CONFIRMED* Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut coming to Wii U

by Dexter Jaekel

Square Enix has now confirmed the existence of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut for Wii U. Although there was no confirmed release date, Square Enix did elaborate on some of the new features of the Director's Cut.

With the GamePad's touch screen, players will be able to hack, interact with the map, augmented snipe, throw grenades back, and "other neural hub enhancements." Of course, I am most excited about being able to hack with the GamePad. Hacking actually took some level of skill with a regular controller, but should be a much smoother process with a touch interface. Also, having a full size map always on display will be helpful when navigating the large hub worlds.

Other features include: in-game guides, developer commentary, Tong's Rescue DLC, Missing Link DLC, overhauled boss fights (the boss battles were point of contention for many gamers and the developers inevitably apologized for the way the boss battles played out), AI tweaks, and visual enhancements. It's pretty easy to see that this is the definitive version of the game. I urge anyone with a Wii U who has not played this game to purchase it when it releases. It just might be the best Core game on this fledgling system.

One of my favorite hidden gems of the current generation is rumored to be coming to the Nintendo Wii U.
That's right! Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut is coming to Wii U on May 7th for $49.99, according to Amazon. Although Square Enix has yet to officially announce this title's existence, we can think of it as all but confirmed. Amazon has revealed the cover art and some of the Wii U Only features.

"Ultimate Deus Ex: Human Revolution experience : take advantage of a multitude of improvements, features and additional content that bring this already critically-acclaimed adventure to whole new levels"

"Tap into the Wii U's GamePad true potential: Adam Jensen's newest augmentation, the Neural Hub, offers an immersive and empowering experience, right at the tips of your fingers"

Although I have no idea what this "Neural Hub" will actually do for the game, I'm excited to have a reason to go back and re-experience the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. If you happened to have missed this game, it's worth playing regardless of what system you own. The high level of customization, diverse play styles, and action packed RPG elements are something that must be experienced by all Core Gamers. Personally, I felt that Deus Ex: Human Revolution did a far better job at being a stealth espionage action game than Metal Gear Solid 4 did. That is saying a lot since I am a die hard Metal Gear Solid fanboy.
