The Mass Effect 3 Wii U port isn’t done by BioWare, it’s handled by new Australian studio Straight Right. They’ve been working on Mass Effect 3 for the Wii U for a while now, and that’s not the only Wii U game they have in the pipeline for Nintendo’s new console. According to studio CEO Tom Crago, they’re working on two more Wii U projects. One is a brand new IP for the new console, while another is based on a “big franchise that will come out in 2013″. EA has several “big franchise” games coming out in 2013, the biggest of them will be Battlefield 4.
Regarding Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U, Crago said that the game has been in development for a year now, and will look just as good as its PS3 and Xbox 360 counterparts. Crago said that first and foremost, they didn’t want to “screw up” the original game. They focused on staying true to the original title, while trying to enhance it with the new Wii U technology and features found in the GamePad controller. The game is currently in the polishing stages, and will be a launch title later this year.
