Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut Outed For Wii U

Amazon.com have revealed Deus Ex: Human Revolution for Wii U, along with box art, key features and a release date of May 17th. The listing suggests that this new version will contain a "multitude of improvements," "additional content" and Gamepad features built around Jensen's Neural Hub. More details below.

Following several months of rumours, this listing seems to thoroughly blow the lid off Adam Jensen's latest outing. Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut will reportedly use the Gamepad in some exciting new ways, while making several (as yet unannounced) improvements to the gameplay. Here's the feature list:

  • Ultimate Deus Ex: Human Revolution experience : take advantage of a multitude of improvements, features and additional content that bring this already critically-acclaimed adventure towhole 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
  • Absolute fusion of action and role-play: A unique combination of action-packed close-quarter takedowns and intense shooting, offering a vast array of augmentations and upgrades for the many weapons at your disposal
  • Multi-solution structure: Choose how to accomplish each mission using combat, hacking, stealth or social mode to create a customized experience to suit any gaming style
  • Diverse customization: Engage in combat and challenges utilizing deep, specialized character augmentations and weapon upgrades

Square Enix have yet to officially comment on the listing beyond a boilerplate non-denial, but this seems fairly concrete by rumour standards (I doubt that they'd have acquired box art for a non-existent project). Watch this space. [via Joystiq]

Uninspired box art aside, the info we've learned, then:

"Ultimate Deus Ex: Human Revolution experience..."
We've included the DLC. As you'd expect on a game that's two years old, tbh.
"Tap into the Wii U's GamePad true potential..."
We've shifted some stuff to the gamepad screen, because we're obligated to do so.
"Absolute fusion of action and role-play"
It's the same game you bought a couple of years ago.
"Multi-solution structure"
...just like that game you bought a couple of years ago.
"Diverse customization"
Yep, definitely sounds just like that game you bought a couple of years ago.

Cynical port and cash in, then.
Don't know why they bothered, tbh. It was an awesome game (despite a couple of annoyances) but I can't imagine it'll sell all that well on the U nearly two years after it came out on the main platforms - bearing in mind it dropped to about £10 around two months after it's release...

Shame - as the U and it's gamepad are the ideal platform for a Deus Ex game.

His pointy chin is annoying me now.

Augmented chinblade?

Will they have done anything about the terrible lip-synching and facial animations?

@JL - lol
@SJH - I don't remember that. The game's two annoyances for me were the boss battles, and the "multiple endings".

@Late & stevenjameshyde: In a perfect world, DXHR: Director's Cut will polish up the graphics while also massively altering the boss battles. Specifically, letting us completely bypass them with incredibly difficult stealth sections, and also dialogue preambles that let us convince them to stand aside/surrender without violence (requiring very clever responses and subtle manipulation).

Whether this will happen is totally up in the air, however, and would require a lot of work for a potentially small payout considering the Wii U's install base.

At the moment, this whole thing is technically still a rumour since Squeenix haven't officially acknowledged its existence (or whether it will come to Europe for that matter). The box art and feature set is a bit of a smoking gun IMO, but we'll keep you posted.
