Towards the end of last year, we started hearing stories that a major Square Enix game would make it to Wii U some time in 2013. Now, new evidence seems to back up the theory that we'll soon be seeing a new version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Nintendo's latest platform, with the Australian Classification Board updating its database to include a "modified" version of the 2011 title.
"Strong themes, violence and sexual references" appear in both versions - the new rating for Human Revolution is MA15+. (In case you were curious, that's exactly the same as the original version, back in 2011.)
Back then, the technical project manager at Australian studio Straight Right updated his online CV with a reference to "porting a triple-A Square Enix game to the yet-to-be-released Wii U platform".
If that developer sounds familiar, it should: Straight Right is responsible for the Wii U port of Mass Effect 3. In late 2012, the company confirmed it was working on three titles for the console - Mass Effect 3, an original IP, and a port of a well-known franchise. It's not too much of a stretch to suspect that we may have just discovered that well-known franchise, in line for a new set of augmentations.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
