A port of Deus Ex: Human Revolution has been confirmed for Wii U by executive game director Jean-Francois Dugas and game designer Emile Pedneault.

In an interview with Eurogamer, the duo mentioned that this version of the game would be the “ultimate” version of the game. The improvements listed are:

  1. Boss battles have been overhauled to make them less annoying. Certain bosses can be killed without firing a single bullet.
  2. Graphics have been improved, with anti-aliasing making the cut — this was missing from both the PS3 and 360 versions. Shadows are also better on the Wii U.
  3. Enemy AI enhancements included in The Missing Link DLC have been retrofitted to the entire game for the Wii U, which will mean that AI is more consistent and convincing throughout the duration of the adventure.
  4. Swipe controls are mapped to the GamePad screen, allowing you to quickly perform in-game moves — such as throwing back a grenade — with the flick of a finger.
  5. All existing DLC is included, but has been intelligently slotted into the main narrative.
  6. An eight-hour director's commentary is included, which can be listened to as you play the game.

Although this game may be seen as just “another port” for the Wii U’s limited library, Dugas was quick to explain that was far from the truth:

"It's a new console. It has a lot of new interesting features in terms of the controller. But also in terms of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, we had been talking for a long time about creating this ultimate edition where there would be new content and we would have a chance to revisit some of the aspects of the game. We thought with the release of the Wii U it was a great opportunity to do that, to take advantage of this new console but also create the ultimate package for the game."

"We really did quite a lot to make this package very unique, and give the old fans who already enjoyed Human Revolution a new purpose to enjoy it again."
