Despite the news that Square Enix plans to bring Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut to other platforms after initially announcing Wii U exclusivity, game designer Emile Pedneault says the Wii U version is still the ultimate version to play.
“In the original game you have all those windows and in-game menus that was clustering the screen. [The GamePad has] allowed us to put in the second screen so your inventory, your skill tree, all those in-game menus are now in a tool kit accessible by touch and quickly navigational by touch.”
Other features for the Wii U version of the game include the ability to throw grenades back at your opponents by swiping on the touch screen, and improved Smart Vision thanks to the gyroscope in the Wii U GamePad. Square Enix promised previously that the Director’s Cut version of the game would see tweaked and refined boss battles after many complaints from the original version of the game stated the bosses didn’t mesh well with the rest of the game.
