Deus Ex: Human Revolution Developer Hopes The Game Will Boost Wii U Sales

"It's even sharper than the PC version"
Nintendo fans have been waiting patiently for Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut to arrive on Wii U. It's been a good couple of years since it was released on other platforms, but it looks as though it could be well worth the wait as the developer has crammed in a tonne of new features to create what it has dubbed the "ultimate" version of the game.
In an interview with Penny Arcade, Emile Pedneault, game designer on the Wii U edition has again reiterated the fact it's the best version yet:
This is the best-looking Deus Ex. It's even sharper than the PC version.
Pedneault said he didn't set out to make a simple port, instead he wanted to identify what was wrong with the previous iteration and improve on it.
Our goal right off the bat was not to make a port. We really wanted to take this opportunity working on the game again to just change what was ehh, so-so with the game and bring some new features to the game.
The developer obviously wants Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut will fly off the shelves when it's released and hopes the game can improve Wii U sales in the process:
I'm not here to speculate about the status of it right now, but we just delivered the ultimate experience and we just took advantage of all the Wii U features in every possible way we can. So hopefully, things will pick up in the future, and we'll make some new and old fans pretty happy with this version.
Who knows, maybe we'll be that one game that makes the Wii U sell.
Whether or not Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut will live up to the hype remains to be seen, but it certainly looks like the developer has put in a lot of effort to make the definitive edition of the game.
