Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut no longer Wii U exclusive

Square Enix has confirmed that Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut is no longer a Wii U exclusive title.

deus-ex-wiiu-controller

Today Square Enix has confirmed in a press release that the previously exclusive Wii U version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut will be coming to other platforms. The game was announced earlier this year and even featured prominently in yesterday’s Nintendo Direct as a shining example of third party support for Nintendo’s platform. This is unfortunate for Nintendo, but certainly bodes well for Square Enix as the game was a huge seller upon initial release. According to General Manager of Eidos-Montreal, Stéphane D’Astous, this move is designed to please fans of the game on all platforms.

“After our Director’s Cut announcement we received an overwhelming response from the community asking us to bring this ultimate edition of human revolution to other platforms. You asked for this!”

The touchscreen features that Square Enix showed off in its trailer you can find below will now be made to function with Xbox SmartGlass and the PlayStation Vita.

    But… others platforms already have Deus-Ex

    • Lunatic

      Yeah, but the bosses suck in the original version, since they were outsourced and don’t fit the rest of the game. I already have the game on the 360, but I’m getting the Wii U version for the extras. I probably wouldn’t rebuy this if it was just released on the Xbox.

      • Nintedward

        The Wiiu gamepad features are what would make it worth it. I don’t see how this an attractive game for PS360 owners who already played it. Will they have the graphical enhancements of the Wiiu ?

        I bet they make the Wiiu version the same as those versions on purpose even though we now know the Wiiu is a VERY capable little console compared to the old crusty’s…

        • Lunatic

          I’m honestly getting it on the Wii U for off-TV play and better bosses. I don’t really care about things like inventory management. I don’t touch my gamepad screen with my thumbs typically, so it’s not much more intuitive making things on the touch screen when I have to fumble for the stylus anyway.

    • Johny

      yeah.. but it sucks… it was the same with Ninja gaiden 3. they got a crappy version, we get an awesome version, then they get the awesome version too..
      its like they have their consumers for fools… releasing a game, and half a year later a much better version

  • Schultz38

    Meh. Square and Ninty have a good relationship so I’m sure we’ll be seeing other exclusives in the future.

    My question is this: Why the Vita? o_0

    • Fred

      Don’t fool yourself it’s gotten to the point where games are so expensive to make that the only exclusives that will happen will be if Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft is the publisher or if one of them pays BIG MONEY for the exclusivity and since Nintendo isn’t going to do that we will get some of the multi-plats and Nintendo published games. I realize many of you will say that’s not enough, but for me that’s more than I have time to play so I’m good there.

      • Schultz38

        Nintendo is getting Sega and Capcom exclusives. And that’s just off the top of my head.

        IMO, these 3rd parties are feeding off of each other. One of them (Ubisoft/EA) has pronounced doom on Nintendo and everyone else is getting scared.

        But, if history has taught us anything, it’s that Nintendo will get 3rd party support later in the Wii U’s life time. They’re going to scrape by on 1st party titles, then, in a year or two, we’ll see huge amounts of publishers putting their exclusives on the Wii U.

  • Vinicius

    Since others platforms already have Deus Ex, I doubt they gonna buy it again just for some adjustments.

  • Nintedward

    Good for Sony and Microsoft fans who want to play it I guess. but i can’t see it doing that well on those platforms for some minor adjustments when they can get it for like £10….

    I’ve never played it , so I might buy it on Wiiu :)

    • D.M.T

      Don’t let them fool you dude. Sony and MS fans don’t really want to play this game. The only reason why they complained is because it was Wii U exclusive and they don’t want Wii U to have 3rd party exclusives. They are selfish and full of hate.

      • Nintedward

        I know… Xbox only gamers are the worst ones. All they care about is CoD , Fifa , Madden , Minecraft , Halo and Nintendo and Sony fans getting screwed…

  • Jon

    and yet we ask for games and don’t get them….

    • Kinky Keath

      we are getting the game so that comment doesnt really make any sense

      • Jon

        I am talking about other games.

      • Jamie Clabon

        kingdom hearts 3

  • Petri

    I dont really care, I just want a release date.

    As long as they dont water down Wii U version and they all release at same price tag I will buy it.

    But I really doubt PS3, 360 or pc gamers would buy this for 50-60€/$.

  • Mad Scientist Link

    A lot of Wii U gamers are asking for Kingdom Hearts 3, how about you hear us out and bring to this console as well. We’re asking for this

    • XypherCode

      Thank you sir.

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      they’re gonna use KH to make up for this I hope

      • Lethal_Doze

        Just buy a real console already, WiiU is a toy for Mario

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          okay

          • Nintedward

            LMAO!!!!!!!!

            De ViiU is a toi for Maryo….. or X shits on the supposedly more powerfull competition graphically.

            The unknown 30% of Wiiu’s GPU is obviously more shaders , bringing it to around 500Gflops or 50% of the Xbones , lmao..
            The Wiiu has 32MB of Edram and Xbone has 32MB of Esram also…

          • val berger

            I think it’s kinda ridiculous to throw around with numbers as it just won’t ever impress anyone. The WiiU may be a capable system, of course, but neither the xbone nor the ps4fans will be somehow impressed by that. If there’d be more software available, then there wouldn’t be a reason to argue as this is the part, noone has to discuss about. because this is gonna be the huge strengh of the system. And although X looks truly wonderful, you’re totally overacting. It doesn’t shits anywhere, it just shows that the WiiU is able to come up with really nice graphics. But then again, every PS360-game with potent visual designers went down that path, so it’s not like X is reinventing the wheel of awesomeness on a technical level. But if it’s just looking damn good, I guess everybody here is gonna be cool with that.
            Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of the WiiU system, but I’d like people to keep it real here.

            In the end, I don’t even see what’s so bad about having a toy for Mario. Sure, there’s more beyond Mario, but actually, Mario is a damn good franchise, so let it be ;D
            I say I’d rather dig the toy for Mario than the toy for Halo.

        • MetroidZero

          Did they forget to give you a toy in your McDonald’s happy meal?

        • uPadWatcher

          Reality check– Wii U is a REAL console. And it’s the only system that has REAL social networking… and you can play online games at NO ADDITIONAL COSTS! Go back and play Wonderbook and Invisimals!

          • RockGod

            You forgot Wii U’s latest claim to fame… Wii U is the ONLY console that does not support DRM!

          • val berger

            that’s plain bullshit. WiiU is full of DRM, just not as freaky as the XBox One which reached a whole new level of DRM-madness. But if you try to copy WiiU games from your external harddisc onto a friends WiiU system, that’s gonna be permitted by DRM. Copy a disc, of course also permitted. So WiiU just uses a more used & common form of DRM but still, it’s DRM.

          • ItzameyaToad

            The Wii U is an understandable DRM though. Why would Nintendo allow you to copy a game only to put it on your friends Wii U? Thats like me paying for something copying it giving it to my friend so he doesn’t have to pay then me also having the ability to play it. It is differant when it is Digital and they don’t want people pirating the games. Now do I belive I should be able to recover my account at a friends and be able to play it there? Yes and hopefully that becomes a feature that they push to implement, but not having the ability to copy a game is understandable DRM not restricting physical disc trade ins, lending etc.

          • val berger

            yes. so what? he said it doesn’t support DRM at all? I just saud it does and you’re telling me, it does, which I obviously already know :)
            people just tend to believe that wouldn’t be DRM at all but that’s just not true.

          • ItzameyaToad

            Oh ok sorry didn’t read his comment lol.

          • val berger

            hehe. Actually you’re right with the DRM to be understandable on the WiiU (as it was on previous generations) but if you look over to the music industry, even this level of DRM used to be a really big deal. There was a time, when they tried to lock Music CDs the same way it’s totally normal with videogames and people (or at least me ;D ) outraged. Of course it’s something different with videogames but in the end it’s still DRM and I could even understand if some people don’t even accept it that way (speaking of the indie-game-scene) but that’s another story. In the end, it’s just interesting to see, that we somehow got used to certain levels of DRM and I think it’s really cool that MS produced such a shitstorm with their attempt to really digital-rights-manage everything.By doing that, they made everyone aware, what big companies are already up to nowadays, after they know what you’re having for breakfast or where you’re eating from your GPS data. But with Kinect and XBone, even users who usually don’t really give a shit startet to think ‘ok…has it really come to this?’ and we gotta be grateful that MS is just so stupid to try those things with such a brutality, so even their fanbase is asking them if they were on drugs or something ;D

          • RockGod

            I was referring to the fact that Sony bolstered their system by implying you would have Wii U like freedom w/ your games. THAT WAS COMPLETE BS as now Sony says only 1st party games will work in that way. 3rd parties are free to use whatever restrictive measures they chose to implement on XBONE games, which means 95% of PS4 games = 100% of XBONE games. SO the implied slap to MS face at E3 was actually a sneaky-ass slap to the face of it’s own fans.

        • david jarman

          So, I guess you don’t play with your console cause playing would sugest that’s its a toy. I guess you just watch yours.

    • Sidney Majurie

      Yep. Ninty fans should take to twitter and rage. Lets see if they care about what we want. Let’s see…

      • XypherCode

        Wii U is perfect for Kingdom Hearts III, as it did for Kingdom Hearts 3D for the Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo fans are ALSO Kingdom Hearts fans. And some people don’t have the luxury and money to afford more than one console.

        • 1239474899

          Then buy the right console, the ps4. So stfu with ur bitching about luxury of more than one console. U get what u pay for and you knlw what ur paying for

          • NkoSekirei

            how about u stfu bitch u disrespectful little noob

          • Danisha

            I can say the same thing for those who want the W101 and bayonetta 2. Stop your whining about luxury of more than one console. and buy the right console for it, the wii U. U get for what U pay for, and U know what your paying for.

          • Fred

            Actually for people on a budget that can’t afford more than one console Wii U is the best. Here were the numbers for me Wii U vs. PS4

            Want the 2nd screen on the PS4 you have to buy a Vita, plus you can use your old controllers on the Wii U which saves guys like me money (my family of 5 plays video games almost every day)

            PS4 $400

            Vita $250

            3 extra controllers $50 each

            That’s $800

            Wii U Deluxe $350 (comes with a game we enjoyed)

            2TB External Hard Drive$95

            That’s $450

            Yes, the PS4 is more powerful I can’t argue that, but both have exclusives and we love our Wii U and we have no regrets!!!

          • Mark Portch

            very well put mate,but you forgot about the $60 a year PSN fee if you take into account the life span of a console now say 7 plus years thats another $350 on top of your plus many people forget that SONY is losing one hell of a lot of money on each PS4 made so if SONY could not take the hit you would have a far less speck console

          • val berger

            Yes and no. If you’re a real hardcore PS-Player, then you get some money, you’re putting into PS Plus back as they’re releasing many games reduced or for free there. Just saying.

          • Fred

            I understand the PSN cost, but since I never bought PSN for my PS3 I doubt I will ever buy it if I get a PS4

          • Jerry

            I do, just sold my WIIU to preorder a PS4. I’ll probably rent a WIIU for the next zelda title. But yeah, buying the WIIU was the worst mistake of my life as a gamer.For 50$ more, I’ll get a real next gen console with actual exclusive game on it, and hopefully sony won’t let me down like nintendo did

          • val berger

            you forgot the extra controllers for the wiiu. but I agree although the main argument here isn’t the pricetag as the Vita is a whole system. The main argument is, that the WiiU is an out-of-the-box solution enabling developers to come up with those cool concepts from scratch. It’s like the Wii VS PS3 Move. As Move isn’t part of the Box, devs can’t create real games for it but only implementing Move-specific features. That’s why Move games are nothing but sweet gimmicks themselves while there where many huge games available for the Wii. And that’s why Kinect being a part of the XBox One could actually be a big deal as all developers can now start implementing Kinect features from scratch. (but don’t get me startet on a kinect discussion here, it’s really just about the out-of-the-box-issue ;) )

            Sorry buddy, Sony says: SORRY, 3rd party PS4 games to contain DRM after all… Truth is YOU got suckered into buying the wrong console.

            Why don’t you shut the fuck if you don’t have balls to really say it! Stupid fucking acronym abuser.
            I’m so sick of this fucking bullshit brought on by people like you that’s ruining the fun in just loving video games. You fucking ruin video games with your anti-this and anti-that, Oh my console is better then yours bullshit act! People like you are the main reason why no one should by a ps4, because your community is littered with assholes like you! Why don’t you just fuck off and try to find a life.

      You could just buy a PS4.

      • Mad Scientist Link

        I am buying PS4 to go along my Wii U and pc. I wouldn’t have cared had it been only to ps since they had both console games but giving to xbox which has never had any kh games at all and ignore Nintendo, which has 4 titles of it, is just weird.

      • Zorlac79

        Sure! Great idea! You sir must be scholarly, to come up with the idea to spend $440 on a new console just to play a game instead of it coming out for another system as the post suggested.

        I wish I was able to come up with such great ideas…. Maybe someday my intellect will rise to such a level.

        • Kyle Zawacki

          Well do you want to play superior graphically enhanced games on a system that doesn’t lack almost all 3rd party support or not?

          Hmm??

          Also it’s $400.

          • Cerus98

            You’re forgetting PS+ requirement for online play. Soon they’ll be charging a fee every time you launch a game.

          • RockGod

            Also all 3rd party titles are going to be heavily restricted by DRM! Just like EVERY game on XBONE! enjoy that… Wii U is the only TRUE open console. Sony allowing 3rd parties to do as they want essentially make the PS4 = XBONE, hell your new PS4 will even come w/ a camera and mic device that will be specifically used as a Kinect substitute… given the choice they will implement the closest thing they can to what they will be doing for XBONE.

          • ItzameyaToad

            Hmmm I am pretty sure the Wii U has alot of third party support and if you havn’t learned graphics don’t make a system.

      • Cerus98

        Or maybe, just maybe if you want the DE directors cut you could buy a Wii U. Works both ways deuchebag.

    • slade6alpha

      Don’t you think Sony had something to do with this? I mean think about it, don’t you think it’s possible Sony paid SE to not have them publish the game on Wii U. It makes sense from their perspective. I bet Sony thinks that One will not hurt their sales of KH3, but Wii U could have. It’s Sony’s direct competition and would’ve posed a threat; KH games have come to Nintendo portables, plus it’s cheaper.

      It’s the same situation where Nintendo paid Capcom to not allow RE Revelations to come to Vita.

      • Baum 「ツリー」

        That wouldn’t really make sense…If they’d pay SE for something like that, I doubt, that they would allow XBONE to have it since it COULD be, that this is the reason for some people to buy it rather than the PS4

        And did they actually pay Capcom for Revelation?

      • Ace J

        KH3 was confirmed to be on Xbox One. Wouldn’t you think Sony would pay SE to keep from Microsoft instead?

        • slade6alpha

          But like I said, do you think they really care if it goes to Xbox One? It’s not going to sell well, people will buy those JRPGs on PS4, not One.

          The 2nd biggest KH fanbase is on Nintendo’s platforms. Sony took that away. Again it’s obviously not confirmed, just a theory.

          Maybe SE has lost faith in Wii U, like other 3rd parties, even Ubisoft. OR maybe Nintendo didn’t pay SE like M$ obviously did. The latter seems stupid to me from Nintendo’s POV.

    • Mario

      I’m crazy asking for this!

    • Guest

      Good news! Kingdom hearts 3 will be released on WiiU! I looked the information at Wikipedia!

      • val berger

        lol good one ;D

    • Mc Robins

      I’ll join anything to get it on Wii U.

    • val berger

      Not enough fans. I totally understand when a multiplatform publisher can’t afford putting money into a console without a userbase. Nintendo will gain more users over the next 2 years and until then, multiplatform developers won’t be acting any different than this. as a matter of fact, wiiu gamers will have to be glad if they even receive a wiiu version of a multiplatform title. it hurts to see such a bad support from third parties after all announcements that have been made in the past, but Nintendo just should have put more power into encouraging developers to support the wiiu and to build up a library of games that gets people to buy the system. Ubisoft did really believe in the WiiU but if sales are as bad as they are now, this hasn’t anything to do with the early stage of a console but with bad management. At the moment, the industry doesn’t really believe that the WiiU’s audience is growing as fast as it should have to put money into development. And as many are blaming third parties for bad support, everything could be so different if Nintendo would just be able for once to create some stunning lineup. Maybe by holiday season (and after a little pricecut) people are raiding the shops for WiiUs encouraging third parties to return but actually I don’t really think that’s gonna happen. I personally think, it would’ve been better for Nintendo to release the WiiU at least 6 months later than they did. In that case, developments wouldn’t have appealed that slow, all promised software would’ve made it into the launch window and so on. But then again, you always know better afterwards.

      • ItzameyaToad

        People put way too high of an expectation on Wii U sales rate, people expected it to sell like the Wii which is a ludachris goal that I don’t even think the PS4 will be able to reach. There are plenty of 3rd party developers supporting the Wii U and it will only get better as the userbase grows.To say it is all Nintendo’s fault is a bit ridiculous. I believe Nintendo has done a much better job trying to get 3rd party dev’s/publishers on board with the Wii U but I think the 3rd party devs don’t want to take a chance on the Wii U, but what they don’t realize is without them supporting the console how do they expect userbase to grow? Seriously the devs say it has a small userbase but if they would release there games on it they could potentially grow the userbase and get more sales on there games.But they go the route of finger pointing and excuse making on why they aren’t giving the Wii U as much support.

        • val berger

          There’s a little bit of truth everywhere I guess. This issue, the reason of the WiiU’s bad sales, is something no one seems to be able to really figure out. It seems to be more like a huge room of interpretation here, so I guess it’s all about opinions. Although I’d say that devs & publishers in the industry who have a better overview over the development of sales numbers may have a better idea of how things are and how they should be. Anyway, I do see that the sales are absolutely bad. And I’m not comparing them with Wii at all, but even the Gamecube did far better as it had a waaay better lineup than the WiiU back then (and even there people really complained as there wasn’t any AAA title available)
          And I totally disagree. You can’t just throw out a console, expect third parties to develop for it and if this isn’t happening complain about third parties to not support it properly. Nintendo’s systems were always absolutely dependent on their first party software and as Nintendo isn’t usually getting the standard of crossplatform stuff like GTA, NFS and so on, people at least rely on 1st party software when buying that system. To say the WiiU would get enough third party-support is really subjective because I don’t really see that. If you really wanna have a PS3/4 standing next to the WiiU, then of course you can give a shit about 3rd parties. But I would really prefer the WiiU to be my only system which used to be the plan when they were releasing it together with some real AAA third party games. But as most of those games were also available on other platforms and there wasn’t enough beyond that, the mainstream lost interest and the sales didn’t start to develop. And that’s exactly what went wrong. I think, Nintendo should’ve done it just like they did it with the Wii. Delay Skyward Sword for one year (ouch, but ok, would’ve been for the better ;D ) and then release it on Wii and WiiU simultanously. Would have made all Wii players aware of the WiiU in first place, would have served a Zelda game as launch title, that may not look as great as a native game but who really cares. Wind Waker doesn’t look like a WiiU game as well and it really seems to attract more people than I would’ve thought.
          The thing is, that WiiU is even about to loose UbiSoft, which would be like the last big bastion for their portfolio of 3rd parties. But in the end, I know, I shouldn’t see it that negative. I just wouldn’t deny that Nintendo really did very much wrong here. Or maybe I should say, they weren’t really ready to launch the system when they did.

    This is known as the Rayman effect.

  • bizzy gie

    Tablets and Vita can’t do what GamePad can do.

    • Kyle Zawacki

      Yeah they can.

      • bizzy gie

        The Vita doesn’t have triggers and clickable analogue sticks. It also has a much smaller screen.

        Tablets don’t have any buttons at all and glass is like a keyboard and a mouse.

        It just isn’t made for gaming.

        • jay

          It’s not even about the features it’s about integration. Wii U gamepad works natively meaning you won’t see all the bugs and missing links that the vita/ps4 will see.

          And NO WAY in hell am I buying a ps4/vita combo for $600+

          • Lunatic

            It’s not really a “combo” so much as it’s 2 separate systems with their own games. If you buy both a PS4 and a Vita you can play games on both, whereas you HAVE to have a Gamepad to use the Wii U, and neither can function separately.

            Saying to buy a PS4 and a Vita is more akin to buying a Wii U and a 3DS than it is to buying a Wii U on its own. Wii U Deluxe + 3DS XL is about $550, so not too far off.

        • Lunatic

          I assume the way they’ll do it for the other systems is perhaps having the inventory show on the second screen, where you can easily swap it out, and the rest of the game will play on the regular controller. Awkward, but possible, and potentially optional. Saying that it doesn’t have enough/the right buttons isn’t good enough.

          The Wii U controllers (Gamepad/Pro) don’t have analog triggers, but people are still begging for games like Mario Sunshine to come back to it, even though the variable triggers are important for games like that. Their excuse? Use the touchscreen. Well if you expect Nintendo to put everything the hardware limits onto the screen, then why can’t Microsoft and Sony pull that off on their screens?

          • bizzy gie

            Switching between Vita and the controller or Tablet and the controller in the middle of a game?

            That’s convenient

          • Lunatic

            Put it in your lap and take one hand off your controller to use it when you need to swap inventory items or play hacking mini-games. You can’t reach the entire gamepad with one finger without removing a hand, so it is literally the same action as you would do on the Gamepad, but moving between devices instead of moving to the middle of the controller. It wouldn’t even be that different for me, because I frequently keep my stylus in my lap when I play games that switch between buttons and touch (since I don’t like using my fingers on the gamepad), so I would have to reach for my lap anyway. I never said it was convenient, and obviously it’s not an ideal solution, but you clearly can’t play the entire game on JUST a Smartglass tablet/phone, so I’m not sure how else you would expect for this to be implemented.

            I’m just stating what I assume will be the case, not what I’m going to use or what I WANT to happen. I’m still going Wii U on this game. I already have it on the 360.

        • Andrew Chambers

          Not to mention the gamepad is much more precise sense it’s resistive vs capacitive.

  • Laud

    LOL? They think they’re going to make money with that? Who the hell uses SmartGlass and who the hell owns a vita?

    • Kyle Zawacki

      Yeah well who the hell owns a Wii U?

      • Jecko

        NOBODY!!!Nintendo’s worst ever console!!!

        • Laud

          Yeah, you know.

  • Jecko

    LMFAO!!!They used the same LAME excuse Ubisoft gave for delaying Rayman and bringing it to other platforms!!!LOL
    With all 3rd party turning their backs Nintendo is finished!!!
    The truth is that the Wii U was rushed just to try and get ahead start on the next gen which has failed so badly!!
    $350 at launch for 6 year old graphics are you kidding me Nintendo?The PS4 is ONLY$399 for a true next gen system!!
    The price of the Wii U should have been $250 at launch and should have just before this years E3!!
    Bye Bye Nintendo time to stick to handhelds and ditch this Wii U as after this E3 you are the laughing stock of the gaming world!!

    • Fred

      You forget if you want the 2nd screen on the PS4 you have to buy a Vita, plus you can use your old controllers on the Wii U which saves guys like me money (my family of 5 plays video games almost every day)
      PS4 $400
      Vita $250
      3 extra controllers $50 each
      That’s $800
      Wii U Deluxe $350 (comes with a game we enjoyed)
      2TB External Hard Drive$95
      That’s $450
      Yes, the PS4 is more powerful I can’t argue that, but we love our Wii U and we have no regrets!!!

          Hey dude, I saw your comment on Twitter that was featured on IGN. Just wanted to tell you it was well-worded and cleanly stated. Well done :D

      • bizzy gie

        PS4 controllers will retail for $60 so it’s actually $830.

        • Fred

          Thanks that means I saved $380!!! plus got a free game!!! Oh and I can still play my wii games (I just started playing Xenoblade on my Wii U Awesome game). I’ll take all that over the graphics improvement the PS4 would have given me.

          • bizzy gie

            Ha! Ha! With the PS4 bundle you listed costing $830, you’ll save $380 getting a Wii U.

    • RockGod

      Enjoy your DRM box of choice. I’ll be supporting console gaming not trying to kill it.

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Read that Ubisoft thinks that Wii U is failed and an abandoned platform. Guess thats true with Square Enix too. As all other 3rd party publishers thinks. Nintendo needs to think in new directions now. They should do something clever with Virtual Console and boosting up with Indies. The other train has left the station.

    • Jecko

      EXACTLY Truth is that they have held on to the same rehashes for way to long and need new inovation IP’S.
      The big Mario game for the Wii U is just a rehash of mario on the 3ds but with just 4 players?LMAO
      So lets see the only decent games coming out are Mario Kart in 2014 and Zelda in 2014?
      LOL

      • jay

        you do know that Super Mario 3D Land is the biggest system seller on the 3DS right? It’ll outsell titan fall, halo and every other “H@rdc0r3″ game out there.

        People like you make Pachter seem like a genius.

        • audi lover

          I dont care if it is a big seller I dont want rehased 3ds games for the next 5 years nintendo pull your fingers out and make new ip for wii u its that simple

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Thats very true. But the Wii U isnt the 3DS. I think Nintendo played too safe, as they did when launching Wii U with NSMBU. We should have seen something blasting, like a new Zelda U or Metroid U or the like.

      • Antar Rodríguez

        what about new xenoblade and smash, they
        look amaizing

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Absolutly

    • Fred

      Are you that panic stricken after all the awesome game footage we got yesterday. The games we know we’re getting are enough to keep me happy

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Come on, this is serious. Of course I think the titles looked amazing. Im going to buy 70-80% of them myself. This concerns something else. I believe Nintendo can do something clever here, but that is not together with 3rd parties. They have to focus on something else, and maybe better, namely the indies. Its the indies that can bring new ideas to the playground. And I think this will be good and healthy for Nintendo too. Everyone who have followed Nintendo from the beginning will see that this is truth. Nintendo could be a strong indie&retro (a digital Nintendo museum if you like) console with their own IPs as 1st party. I believe Nintendo is the only one that can do it. And they should do it. Gaming is a cultural value too.

        • RockGod

          I agree. The indie developers are really giving Wii U a lot of love, and Ninty needs to keep going with that. Then you said it… The Virtual Console, if they could pump out a lot more games in a lot less time then THAT would be huge. I hope they can achieve that even though I would be soooo broke as result. Their 1st and 2nd party titles are always quality productions, They’ve had to rely heavily on them before ie N64 and GCN eras.

          All that said they can’t just give up on 3rd party support, They will have to keep trying to get that where and when they can. Even being mainly 1st party consoles the N64 and GCN saw some excellent 3rd party titles as well. Ninty will need to continue all available avenues for games. Let’s just be thankful that Nintendo won’t let anyone cram DRM down our throats like the other two.

  • tronic307

    Well, surprise, surprise.
    If it isn’t Rayman in another guise.

  • Fred

    Of coarse it’s not exclusive it’s gotten to the point where the only way Wii U gets an exclusive is if Nintendo is the publisher. Just remember that if it’s published by Nintendo it’s exclusive, if it’s not then it’s not exclusive.

    • Ice Climbers

      Except for the three Sonic games in the deal with Sega. One of them has Mario in it though, so that would’ve been exclusive anyway. Sonic Lost World and the third unannounced game will stay exclusive. Nintendo really needs to extend that partnership with Sega, and the partnership with Capcom for Monster Hunter.

      • Fred

        good point, maybe I was wrong

  • John Andalora

    People complain about this game and say how sub-par it was with its lame boss fights, but at the same time want it to be a Wii U exclusive…

    You guys do realize that “Director’s Cut” typically just means more levels that they cut out from the original, and doesn’t typically have any kind of improvement over the original game, right?

    • audi lover

      Actually they have improved the boss fights the major problem with the first release

  • Graham Gillman

    Fine, I dont give a shit, but bring Kingdom Hearts 3 to Wii U.

    • Mario

      Bring it! Bring it! Bring it!

  • bizzy gie

    A lot of anti-Nintendo people in the comments.

  • Levi Johansen

    Give us a few months of exclusivity… just a few :D

  • Sidney Majurie

    Calling your remixed game appears to be the new marketing ploy. None of the people crying for this game would care if it was just re released on their HD twins. Call it a Wii U exclusive, cue the fanboy outrage, and then a game that would have gotten little press gets tons of attention which boosts sales from raging fanboys. Just like Rayman Legends and Ninja Gaiden.

    This is a shameless ploy.

  • D.M.T

    People at Square Enix are so retarded, they actually think that this improved version will sell well on PS3 and 360. It won’t because this is an old game and those who already own the game will not buy it again.

    People who complained about this game being Wii U exclusive are just selfish idiots who don’t want the Wii U to have any 3rd party exclusives.

    Now I probably won’t buy this game anymore. I hate when publishers change their mind. Wii U needs exclusives to sell and you’re not helping Square Enix, all you want is money and I don’t respect people who only care about money.

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aMVlNPjpbI The Devourer of Dimensions

      Why wouldn’t you buy it? Deus Ex HR is a fantastic (imo) game and I’m glad more serious tone games are coming to WiiU. Don’t let the fact it’s not an ‘exclusive’ change your mind. The WiiU gamepad seems to eliminate the need to pause the game and go through your inventory. You can just do it whilst you play.

      • thedeciderU

        yes, as much as the system needs the intendo franchise exclusives, it NEEDS darker games to offer something to those interested. hopefully it’s just around the corner.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aMVlNPjpbI The Devourer of Dimensions

          I don’t have a WiiU, but is certainly appealing to me with the way some of the ports are used on WiiU. Deus Ex HR Director’s Cut seems to be better than the original anyway, so I’ll probably buy it (again). Nintendo can’t survive solely on things like Mario, Pokemon and Sonic anymore in today’s gaming market. That’s why ports and new serious tone games coming to Wii U are a good thing. Hopefully games like Destiny, Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IV and future things will come to Nintendo.

          • thedeciderU

            watch dogs and assassin’s creed IV are confirmed for wiiu this fall. now we just need to get other 3rd party companies besides ubisoft, who, i must applaud.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aMVlNPjpbI The Devourer of Dimensions

            Good, what about GTA V? or Saint’s Row IV? or Batman: Arkham Origins? I’d imagine so since WB Games did the WiiU port of Arkham City.

          • thedeciderU

            oh yeah, batman AO is confirmed as well. GTA V i can’t see happening since rockstar has never been on a nintendo console, pretty sure that saints row will not come to wiiU (releases august)

      • Kaihaku

        I don’t know. I was really excited for this game but I’m fuming…not because it’s no longer an exclusive, that doesn’t really matter to me, but because it’s been delayed since May so that it can be released multi-system. There’s no reason that Square Enix couldn’t have released it for the Wii U in May and then released it for other systems a few months later.

    • thedeciderU

      yeah, not sure why 360 or ps3 owners would give a shit since their copy is around 20 bucks now… thinking this game might be forgotten amidst nintendo and other system exclusives. not really sure why anyone is bashing nintendo owners.

    • TCar

      Agreed. Once these developers make these announcements, my money doesn’t get spent on those games. I was actually considering getting this game but no more. I understand from their perspective to make money but when you can’t hold to your own word, how can we trust your dedication to one version over the other. If they do this for one game then all games should lose their exclusiveness and be released on each system currently available.

    • 1ird

      You realize the people that make these decisions usually don’t make the games? They are in it to make money, so why not make the most?

      • D.M.T

        Really? No shit. Of course I know that but they won’t make money by releasing the game for PS3 and 360 because people who wanted to play this game already bought it and you can find the old version for $20 or less so they won’t pay $50 or whatever for this Director’s Cut version.

  • Clel

    Hey guys, I know this is unrelated, but some of you may have missed Nintendo E3 stuff due to whatever reason. This is a summary of all that happened:

    http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/06/feature_the_big_e3_nintendo_direct_round_up

  • Ismael Ototo

    Well, it’s our turn now. Everybody, enter your twitter accounts! Let’s overwhelm Square Enix with requests for bring Final Fantasy and Kindgom Hearts to Wii U!

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    So let me recap, if Sony and MS fanboys ask for games (which where exlusive) they get it Rayman Legends, Deus Ex Director’s cut etc.

    But if Ninty fans ask for games they are told: Will not come to WiiU Castlevania LoS2, GTAV etc.

    Don’t get me wrong I’m happy we get some square enix love and lots of ubisoft love but isn’t this a little strange?

    • Nintendofreak

      welcome to reality

      • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

        Indeed reality check, looks like N is still the blacksheep.

        • Nintendofreak

          the thing is this ( a guesstimate no real evidence n blablabla) like 60-80% of sony n micorsofts game sales come from 3rd party while nintendo sales are like 50-70 1st party so yeah its to be expected

          • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

            Have to agree with you again indeed, but maybe MS and Sony need to have it from 3rd party support because they have little to no first party games, worth mentioning or atleast worthwhile. Instead they make the hardware and let others do the games, seemingly it works well for them yet ms remains to be seen how that will end.

            To be expected indeed, but still such a shame, I miss the Snes days often…

          • Nintendofreak

            every generation i miss the last generation even more also

        • RockGod

          It’s because Nintendo is the only console that is free of DRM! Sony said they only meant their own (1st party) games won’t have it, ALL 3rd parties are free to use their DRM in any way they want (just like on XBONE). 3rd parties abandoning Wii U for the other platforms just so they can implement these things…
          XBONE is 100% restrictive w/ DRM, but the dirty secret we’re learning about today is that PS4 is 95% restrictive as well.

  • Petri

    I just hate the damn delay, and no release date on sight.

  • Link Slayer

    It would be Awesome if Nintendo just made there biggest games for Sony!

    • MetroidZero

      It would be awesome if those who wanted Nintendo exclusives just bought the Nintendo console.

      Fixed.

    • RockGod

      No…. just no…

  • Agent721

    Im still getting it on the Wii U. The Wii U tablet includes everything you need on it, rather than having to put down your joystick & pick up a phone or tablet on the other two. And who on the other 2 consoles was waiting for this???

  • Micks610

    The Rayman Effect

  • Graeme Lynch

    This only proves further my concerns that Wii U is going to suffer the same fate as the Wii. By this I don’t mean selling the most consoles. By this I mean losing developers and support resulting in very sparse games being released.
    The NDirect itself was very disappointing. No major titles being released this year again? Great. I feel betrayed and somehow cheated by Nintendo for the fact I bought the Wii U day one and have not experienced anything of significance.
    Patience dwindling and faith doubting.

    • oontz

      exactly my wiiu sits waiting for something great only to find out I need to wait some more!

  • 1239474899

    The wii sold 94 million units, the legend of zelda sold 7 million amd obviously every nintendo fan bought the legend of zelda so now looking at the numbers nintendo ONLY has 7 million fans to be nice ill add 12 million more so 19 million fans WOW so 19 out of 94 million consoles was sold to a nintendo fan the rest are kids and casual gamers. The ps3 sold like 69 million and they were all hardcore other than the 3 million casuals.

    • RockGod

      The Rock Says… MS sold 70% of their 360 consoles to replace broken consoles, because according to MS customer service it would be “cheaper to just buy a new one” than to have that piece of monkey crap FIXED!

        No one mentioned the Xbox360 loser. I wipe my ass with the rockgod’s face!

  • Michael Durkopp

    *Face-palm* …why am I not surprised

  • Jecko

    LOL Nintendo has made the most EPIC mistake ever!!
    They released the Wii U way to early and is evident with zero AAA games since last November!!
    With Wii they got it so right,they priced it way cheaper then its rivals, it came with a FREE copy of Wii sports to show off motion controls and even launched with Zelda Twilight princess which was Epic!!!
    The Wii U launched with no free game, no zelda and big AAA game was a rehash of mario bros wii?LMAO
    Super Mario bros wii sold 35 million!!!The last Zelda game only sold 7 million.
    So Nintendo why did you not totally change the Mario series once again instead of a lame rehash?
    Nintendo need to fire Iwata and Reggie as they are the ones that have screwed up so badly and are ruining Nintendo!!

    • thedeciderU

      OMG it’s OVER for Nintendo! only 7 million? shit! let it be known that i don’t even play zelda games.

  • thedeciderU

    meh

  • Jecko

    I said it before and I will say it again….Nintendo need to stick to making handhelds as no one can touch them,ditch the Wii U and make games for PS4 Xbox One,Mobile and PC and they would make millions more than trying to revive the gimmick U!!!
    That is now EA, Ubisoft and Square Enix all turning their backs within 8 months of release!!
    Nintendo 3rd party ruined the 3ds launch and has ruined the Wii U, Nintendo PATHETICALLY thought that the 3rd party games would compensate till the AAA games came…..when Ubisoft turned their backs after 3 months!!!
    Mario Kart 2014?WTF!!
    Bye Bye Nintendo you are a joke

    • NkoSekirei

      how about u stick to eating garbage and banging goats u troll

    • RockGod

      The Rock wipes his ASS with your OPINIONS!

    • John Raybell

      yeah. fucking horrible E3, hurt Nintendo pretty bad, wouldn’t be surprised if this is the last Nintendo console. First party titles were even meh, spin off mario 3ds game for wiiu WTF, DK instead of something new, rehash of smash bros,so pretty much we get to play nintendos last couple gens on our WiiU WOW.

      Horrible list of games, and not much to speak of,last chance to prove it and they failed, only thing that would save them is a real mario, show zelda, some new IPs, new metroid, reboot some old NESsnes titles, AND STOP PLAYING IT FUCKING SAFE.
      And here is another Idea, show something NEW not shit we knew about or shit we already saw or shit from last E3.

      Have we moved no where?

      Mario kart 8 next spring, more bullshit, did nobody have any time to make any games, xbox one and ps4 launch line ups look crazy compared to two years after the wiiU is fucking out. how much sense does that even make?

        • oontz

          Man they have published some of THE BEST games of the last generation. Do you even game bro?

          • Potemkin

            Yes I do, but none of their games are what used to be. Final Fantasy XIII , XIII 2 and XIII 3 are nothing but pretty graphics ( I own both), Deus Ex HR is an OK game and Tomb Raider is good but not great (have yet to play Hitman). All in all, their recent policies for games and their constant ports and remakes (charged as new releases) only confirms that they are relying heavily on nostalgia to keep a saga, such as FF, alive. The last Final Fantasy worth noting was XII. SE used to be one of my favorite game companies, but they became into something that has taken heavy influence by Microsoft and Apple.

    Danm… if it goes like this Im gonna start to save for PS4

  • SuperSmashMan2

    So let me get this straight.

    Square Enix would take a Wii U exclusive and put to the Xbox One and PS4…..

    But they will not put Kingdom Hearts 3 on the Wii U…..

    even though, Nintendo fans want it to…..

    I feel that this ‘$$$$$’ might be the reason……

    • John Raybell

      REALLY? no shit money is the reason, the wiiu is the worth console to put your games on if you want them to sell, cost for porting or making games for wiiu is more then they would ever make off the games.

      So putting your games on the WiiU is a horrible choice for a business.

      And after a horrible E3 like that, there will be less support for sure since ubisoft is bailing once these next few titles release, so with them gone and next to no other third party games, this console is DEAD

      WiiU= Worst ever business move ever, pack your bags and run like hell unless you want to go out of business.

      • SuperSmashMan2

        Oh really?

        Did you ever hear about the Apple Pippin?

        That was a disaster, at least the Wii U sold over a million consoles.

        The Pippin sold 53,000

        53,000

        Troll harder, bro.

        • John Raybell

          troll harder? ubisoft did in fact bail on wiiu, came from there own mouths!

          Lack of support due to lack of sales. face it that’s how it is right now, if you own one you would know that there isn’t shit for support for this console. so fuck off

          • SuperSmashMan2

            Oh really? So basically, all the hate on Xbox One is nothing to you, but the Wii U is still a failure in your eyes and the worst business decision ever?

          • John Raybell

            at this moment in time its a bad choice, next year maybe this will go over better.

            And the issues with xbox one hardly effect me, dont care about used games, I have the internet, ps4 will also cost money to play online.

            $60 a year for live isnt that much, use to pay it all the time.

            Not worried about being spied on.

            in any case I would get a xbox one, have a wiiu already, will continue to support nintendo, but don’t have my hopes up, until i see a total turn around like the 3ds

            Something wrong with me wanting all the consoles if I could afford it?

          • SuperSmashMan2

            Apparently, you forgot that you aren’t 7 billion people. Just because you buy the Xbox One doesn’t mean Microsoft will still survive the massive hit it took with this reveal.

          • John Raybell

            you act as if im an xbox fan, grew up a nintendo gamer, teen years got into pc on the side, nintendo till after highschool, owned wii next to my xbox360, build a pc, and my brother has a wiiu here, just got done playing the wiiu less then 5min ago, dont play xbox360 anymore, havent for “months” even know i have a gaming pc i have still put more hours into the wiiu, buuuuuuuuuuuuut would still maybe consider the xboxone, not that i will get one, if i did maybe next year sometime see how things go with it.

            I love games to damn much to flat out at this moment in time say I wont support a 2nd console.

            On to nintendo I wasn’t the only one disappointed in mario, not that we wont get it,nor enjoy the hell out of it, maybe that we knew the lineup was also an issue, but in any case nothing wowed me, well X looked pretty awesome.

            Things may take awhile longer to sink in for some gamers, for sure if you have been a nintendo gamer since 1988 or around there, sometimes old nitendo gamers that have seen it all just want to be wowed, nothing wrong with that :).

            Will continue to support nintendo even through there worst times, always have always will, buuuuuuuuuuuuut like you said im just a single person, so i cant do it all by myself ;)

            Also microsoft will stick around unless they “choose” to leave, they have tons of cash and will continue to throw cash into there failing products, as well as others. launch for both xbox one and ps4 also look great.

            If I had it my way i would only game on a wiiu, but there just aren’t enough games right now, so a 2nd consolehandheldpc is pretty much a must to fill the gaps.

            I may get back in to 3ds to help that gap, I think between 3ds and wiiu I may be satisfied maybe the occasional pc third party title.

            See I think both people are HAPPY with what they saw it just hasn’t sunk in yet, would have helped if we got the e3 demos on our home consoles as well and not just E3 and best buy, i live at least 100 miles from the nearest best buy, and between money and the round trip we had to skip it, I think if I had a chance to play some of these demos I might not have found my self so disappointed.

            Watching crap streams of games never does justice anyways, even the 7201080 vids of gameplay for the most part were a joke, you can never really tell how good a game looks until you load it up on your own HD tv with your own wiiu :).

            That said,I would have loved to try mario out, hope all the e3 demos are released soon, wouldn’t see why not just for the fact that they have finished demos just waiting for us, those could even help fill some gaps and could also increase future sales for The big N.

            Holy crap I can rant, sorry everybody lol

            Well fine then.

        Also, am I really going to listen to an asshole who can’t even spell ‘worse’? How can you fuck that up? ‘worth’, so you’re saying the Wii U is worth it? Great spelling, bro.

        • Potemkin

          He/she didn’t spell “worse” but rather “worst”, which I believe and please correct me if I am wrong, is correct.

            ” the wiiu is the worth console to put your games on if you want them to sell, cost for porting or making games for wiiu is more then they would ever make off the games.”
            It’s right after he said ‘REALLY? no shit money is the reason’

        • John Raybell

          oooops wrong word, you got me, didn’t catch that.

          Worst not worth, a MISTAKE.

          Sorry fact still stands, its money, and doing exclusives on the wiiu will lose you money, so there you have it, no exclusives-damn near none at least, and hardly jack for third party support.

          I own a Wii U and am upset as much as the next guy, only difference is im not ignorant as shit, nor do I live in lala land

          More sad truth

          sad list right? lack of games, sad list sad list

          • SuperSmashMan2

            Well, the thing is, Microsoft is getting panned big time even to the point where Nintendo is even mocking them.
            So who is in bigger trouble here?

      • Ice Climbers

        Xbox One is dead in the water before it even began thanks to Microsoft shooting themselves in both feet. PS4 will sell, and Wii U has Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8, Monolith’s X, and possibly Zelda U coming next year. Smash and Zelda will make Wii U sell fantastically. Nintendo just needs to actually ADVERTISE the system and its games (not just Mario). They need to drop the Basic model, lower the Deluxe Model to $300, release more colors, and release some bundles. Do that and the system will sell well over the holiday season.

    Thanks for the repl, so what your saying is the more you spend on PSN the more in money off terms you get back.I mean £50 fee a year can mean £50 plus plus plus back

    Considering this is Square Enix which has been run through the ringer when it comes to making small profit and not focusing on what fans want this seems like a logical thing. If all of your other games are costing you and arm and a leg to build and you have unreal sales expectations just to make a profit, selling games like this to all platforms makes sense lol. Theve gotta make money somehow lord knows they are having a hard time making a profit with all there other games.

  • get a grip fanboys

    ID BE INTERESTED IF IT DIDNT HAVE PREHISTORIC FPS ANALOG STICK AIMING. Lol like aiming with a broom stick

    I don’t mind that this won’t be an exclusive. I didn’t mind that Rayman Legends wasn’t going to be an exclusive. What burns me up is that this game was suppose to be released in May and now we see why it’s been delayed, so that it can be released on other systems. I think it’s a dick move to delay a game that had been an exclusive in order to release it all at once on multiple systems. Square Enix could have released this on the Wii U in May and then released it to the other systems in the Fall.

    Iwata pay and bring us GTA V i want this game in the gamepad
