It took some prodding and an offer for a free copy of Pikmin 3, but Nintendo has finally secured an endorsement from Commander Shepard. Sales of the Wii U among Krogans are expected to increase by 200%.

    Prediction: Interactive comic for decisions from first two ME games

    Seconded. Unless BioWare can buy out Microsoft's publishing rights for ME1, they'd have to do something.

    Strangely, it's going to be the real, full version of ME3.

    I wonder if they will include the 'expanded' ending, or if Wii U buyers will get it as DLC like the rest of us.

    By the time the WiiU comes out, the ending DLC will be available - but they'll probably put it on the disc anyway.

    I'm just wondering what incentive there is to buy this when the other versions will likely be $19.99 by that point

    that seems to be the issue with a lot of the third party 'launch window' titles for the console, but then again if the wii's install base (kids and casuals) opt for the sequel console maybe we'll see them broaden out in taste?

    In future news, Mass Effect 3 on the WiiU sells a total of 2345 copies. Bioware scratches their heads and remains perplexed, wondering why nobody wanted to buy a 2 year old game on inferior hardware.
    Vanillaware’s 2D is, once again, shaming their competitor’s 3D. It’s like, what are you even doing with your extra D, jerks? Maybe we should hold that extra D in reserve for you, like a trust, until you are ready. - Tycho, Penny Arcade

    This is true, hopefully it has some neat WiiU features.

    ME3 just came out for PC/Xbox/PS3 March 2012. It's scheduled to come out by the end of 2012, so I don't see how it's 2 years old already. Plus, we don't have the full details on the hardware for the Wii U. For all we know, it could be more powerful than the ps3/360, or roughly the same.

    Although I didn't realize it was scheduled to come out that soon, keep in mind that delays are not an anomaly in the industry. There have been numerous reports already that the Wii U hardware cannot perform was well as the 360 and PS3. I wish I could draw up the links but I believe I read it on Kotaku as well as heard about it on GiantBomb. Anyway, I played ME3 on PC, so that's more where I was drawing the conclusion from - my PC hardware being far superior to what the Wii U has under the hood.
