Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut trailer promises an 'augmented' version for Wii U

A new trailer has been released for the Wii U "Director's Cut" version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, showcasing what Square-Enix calls the "definitive version" of the acclaimed shooter RPG.

As Polygon learned last month, the Director's Cut version includes the game's previous DLC, adjusts the AI and improves the game's graphics. Perhaps most significantly for many fans, the Director's Cut will also feature new tactics and methods to approach the game's boss fights so players who invest in stealth or hacking instead of combat won't be at such a disadvantage this time through.

The Wii U version will naturally take advantage of the console's unique Gamepad controller — what the trailer refers to as the "neural hub" — by providing an expanded map and touchscreen controls for gameplay elements such as sniping or hacking.

Square-Enix currently has no plans to bring any of the Wii U improvements to the PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions of the game.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut is scheduled to hit Wii U in early May.
