At the start of the month we reported on the rumour that a modified version of Square Enix's Deus Ex: Human Revolution was coming to the Wii U.

That rumour has now been given additional weight by the editor of a German website, who has claimed on a podcast that he's seen the game — which is called Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut — in action and that it will be revealed by Square Enix at PAX East.

You can check out the podcast in question here, but you'll need to understand German.

As if to put it beyond all doubt, Amazon has leaked the cover of the game and given it a North American release date of May 7th. According to the listing, the Wii U GamePad will allow you to use Adam Jenson's latest gadget, the Neural Hub, to offer "an immersive and empowering experience, right at the tips of your fingers".
