Mass Effect 3 is possibly one of Wii U's biggest launch window titles, or alternatively the port falls way down the pecking order; it's all down to personal perspective. In any case, and much like Batman Arkham City: Armoured Edition, the Wii U release won't be put together by the original team but handled by an external development studio.
It's been confirmed, via Twitter, that Australian developer Straight Right will have the task of bringing Mass Effect's concluding part to Nintendo's new system. The developer has just one previous title under its belt, the well regarded Shift 2 Unleashed on iOS devices, so this seems to represent quite a step up in scale and challenge. While tweeting the news, Straight Right also confirmed what we already knew, that this will be a launch title.
Happy to confirm that we're developing Mass Effect 3 for Wii U with our friends at BioWare...
Mass Effect 3 confirmed as a Wii U launch title.
Despite having just one game in its portfolio, Straight Right can at least point to the fact that it's a good one. So, is Mass Effect 3 on your list for the launch of Wii U?
