Japan doesn’t have to wait too long for Deus Ex: Human Revolution or simply Deus Ex as its known in the region. Square Enix set September 8 as the game release date, two weeks after it lands in North America.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be fully localized with Japanese text and voiceovers. The PlayStation 3 version also includes English voice acting, which can be selected via a menu option.
Another bonus is the Japanese version includes downloadable pre-order content from North America and Europe on disc. Square Enix didn’t specify which bonuses, though. Gamestop is offering an explosive mission pack, which has a new mission with a Deus Ex cameo character. The package also includes a Linebacker G-87 multiple-shot grenade launcher, M-28 remote-detonated explosive device, and an automated unlocking device. Other retailers have a tactical pack, which includes a Huntsman Silverback double-barrel shotgun, Longsword Whisperhead Extreme Range sniper rifle, and extra credits.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution costs 7,980 yen ($99), quite a bit more than the $59.99 price point in North America. Speaking of North America, here’s a video of the developers at Eidos Montreal explaining the game’s world.
