Eidos Montreal proved it had the chops to revive one of the most beloved series in gaming in 2011 with Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The game went on to win numerous awards and sell 2.18 million units in its first month. Now the title is coming to Wii U with new features and fixes for common complaints.
Square Enix recently announced that it will be launching Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut on the Wii U in 2014. The game, ported by the same team that worked on the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3, features a number of new features exclusive to the Wii U version. The game will also fix a number of problems fans had with the original, including the boss fights.
It seems kind of strange to port an almost two-year-old game to the Wii U, but the console is starved for content. Besides, some gamers that stuck only to the Wii last generation may never have had the chance to play one of 2011’s best games. For them, it will undoubtedly be a great experience, but I doubt Deus Ex veterans will want to buy the game again.
