Last week at E3, EA didn’t show a lot of support for the Wii U – in fact, they only had one major Wii U title to showcase: Mass Effect 3. despite this, EA CEO John Riccitiello was on stage at the Nintendo E3 press conference to announce a strong partnership between the two companies. Later in the week, both Madden 13 and FIFA 13 were revealed to be coming to the Wii U.
But that’s not all the company has for the Wii U. According to EA president Frank Gibeau, EA has WIi U games in the pipeline that weren’t revealed at E3. He said in an interview with CVG:
“We’ve got a couple of more games in development for Wii U and we’ll have a bigger lineup for Wii U than we did for the Wii”
Gibeau continued, saying that the Wii U is a next generation platform and they’re “fully supporting it”. He said that due to the hectic nature of E3, they held back on some of the announcements regarding future Wii U games. Those games will be announced this Summer, he assured.
A few days ago, EA revealed that the Mass Effect 3 Wii U version will have an “enhanced storyline”, which will include a reworked ending and other DLC that has been released on other platforms. Of course, the game, officially titled “Mass Effect 3: Take Earth Back”, will feature Wii U GamePad specific controls. EA has been rumored to bring many of their franchises to the Wii U, including Battlefield 3, which was showcased at E3 last year in a trailer for the Wii U.
