Mass Effect 3 Wii U confirmed for launch

By:  Eddie Makuch

The Wii U has added Mass Effect 3 to its list of launch titles. BioWareconfirmed recently that the Wii U version of its spacebound role-playing game will be available when the console launches in North America (November 18), Europe (November 30), and Japan (December 6).

Mass Effect 3 for Wii U was previously a “launch window” game for the system. Nintendo‘s “launch window” spans from November 18, 2012 through March 31, 2013.

BioWare also detailed what fans can expect in the way of add-on content with the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3. The game will include the From Ashes, Extended Cut, Rebellion, Resurgence, and Earth expansions, as well as a “bonus heavy weapon.”

The Wii U SKU will also include an update to the Genesis interactive comic from Dark Horse that was first released when Mass Effect 2 came to the PlayStation 3. The updated iteration clues players in on the Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 backstory and allows players to make decisions at certain story points. These decisions will then create an importable save game that will open new story branches in Mass Effect 3.
