Mass Effect 3: Special Edition has pretty much been a disaster the whole way around. Wii U owners, first of all, are starting off with the third game in the franchise rather than the first.
That wouldn’t be so terrible if EA hadn’t announced – and already released – the Mass Effect Trilogy on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The package contains all three entries in the series. We’ve since heard that DLC such as Omega won’t be coming to the Wii U at this time.
Despite all of the negative news, there could be a bit of hope regarding Mass Effect’s future on Nintendo’s home console. In an interview with GamerSyndone, the company teased that it does have “plans” for Wii U, “but nothing to announce at this moment.” It also hinted that the Mass Effect Trilogy could head to Wii U, reiterating: “Never Say Never”.
GS: What is BioWare’s plan regarding the Wii U? Mass Effect 3 was released onto it but fans were surprised to learn DLC, like Omega or Leviathan, wouldn’t be available for it. Are there plans for the first two games to be released onto Wii U as well as DLC?
BioWare: We have a terrific company in Australia [Straight Right] who did a good job putting Mass Effect 3 on Wii U. Again, I can’t really comment on rumored speculation about the game or the franchise. Wii U is a console we feel is really cool and that more Mass Effect would look great on it, so we do have plans for Wii U but nothing to announce at this moment.
GS: You guys said a similar thing when asked about a Mass Effect Trilogy for PS3 before you announced it.
BioWare: Yes we did, and look what happened. As we like to tell people on Twitter, “Never Say Never.” The same can be said about the Mass Effect Trilogy for Wii U. Never Say Never
