A new Amazon product listing suggests a Director’s Cut of 2011’s Xbox 360, PS3 and PC game is headed to Nintendo’s console on May 7, while earlier this month the Australian Classification Board rated a "modified” version of the game for a multiplatform release.
According to the online retailer, the Wii U version of the game will include “a multitude of improvements, features and additional content”, while tapping into the GamePad's “true potential” with a new augmentation for protagonist Adam Jensen called the “Neural Hub”. A Square Enix representative wouldn’t comment on the possibility of a Wii U release when contacted today.
We said in our Deus Ex: Human Revolution review: “As far as single-player experiences are concerned, DX:HR is one of the absolute best of this console generation. Unless you insist on having some kind of multiplayer mode, or hate reading, there's no reason you won’t enjoy DX:HR. While it’s slightly more linear than the original, the level of polish and effort that have gone into it more than make up for it. Eidos Montreal has successfully blended the best of both worlds, rebooting a classic franchise without losing the core of what made the original beloved.”
