Deus Ex: Human Revolution looks set for Wii U

Deus Ex: Human Revolution appears set for release on Wii U.

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.”

    It is a fantastic game but I've played it a long time ago. They would have to introduce a lot more of content to be worthy of playing it again.

    Why would the Australian classification board modify the content? We got an R rating this year.

    I never picked this game up on Xbox or Ps3. I was considering it, and since i have all 3 now i have to decide which one to get. >.> If they do the whole NFS thing and go pc-quality textures and such, I'll definitely go WiiU on this one. Either way. Pretty cool. Only thing this does is open this game up to a slightly larger audience.

    This isn't the sequel, but you can see it from here.

    If you want to make enemies, try to release this game with exclusive content on Wii U.
