In 2012, EA and Bioware released Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U. Now, the series is finally making its return to a Nintendo system. Instead of a game release, though, a Mass Effect-themed Mash-Up Pack for Mojang's hit title Minecraft has been released (again), this time on the Minecraft Marketplace.
This one is similar to previous packs – adding in new themed locations (such as the Mars Base Camp), and a total of 36 new skins from the original trilogy series. You can play as Shepard, Liara, the Illusive Man, Garrus and even Krogans. This mash-up pack also includes custom-made textures, Mass Effect-style menus, and an appropriately-themed soundtrack, based on the third entry in the series.
Here's a bit extra from the Minecraft website:
I’m Commander Shephard and this my favorite mash-up pack on the Citadel
Will you be revisiting the Mass Effect trilogy series in Minecraft? Leave a comment down below.
Stop teasing with your news titles, Nintendolife!
I got excited only to be extremely disappointed. I've had enough of this site's disingenuous assertions.
EDIT: This is sarcasm, I just wanted to quote Mass Effect since its a rare headline on this site. Now if you'll excuse me, I was in the middle of some calibrations and need to form a consensus.
Hey, its got better animations than Andromeda
@AnnoyingFrenzy It's right in the headline that it's a Minecraft skin. Not like they hid that in the article itself.
Wasn’t this already in the game? Maybe I just imagined it
@Indielink Relax, it's a Mass Effect quote.
@Eel Nope, you're right, this is a re release, but I don't think it was in bedrock yet, only the original console addition.
"soundtrack, based on the third entry in the series."
The first one had the best though.
I'd love to see the Mass Effect trilogy get a new release, regardless of if it comes to Switch or not (it would be nice though of course).
@Orpheus79V The map screen music is incredible. It’s kinda hilarious that out of all the games, Wii U got 3. It would be like only being able to watch Spider-Man 3.
What a high and low to feel in a matter of seconds.
The Mass Effect Trilogy on Switch is about the only thing EA could give us that I would happily buy.
While I like Minecraft I haven't played it much lately. It's no fun in single player and most of my friends have moved on from it.
Had me in the first half, not gonna lie.
I would rather have Mass Effect Trilogy instead.
@Heavyarms55 They'll just give you the 3rd game for full price while making the trilogy on other platforms for the same price.
@Discostew As angry as I would be, I wouldn't be surprised by it. Then when the lone 3rd game doesn't sell as well on Switch, they'll say, again, that it's Switch gamers who don't want their products.
Standard EA, deliver an inferior product to an audience, blame the audience when is sells poorly, return to shoveling out the same game on the other platform year after year and making lots of money because they have exclusive rights to gets of that type.
"Mass Effect Arrives On The Nintendo Switch...." is the cruelest way to start a headline.
Welp. I guess that’s that. Imma go keep waiting for a Fallout game before that becomes nothing but a Minecraft skin too, I suppose.
@HobbitGamer : Fallout Shelter do nothing for ya?
Sucks that nothing else regarding Mass Effect will come out.
@MasterJay oooh that's it then, sometimes I forget they're separate
This title is a disgrace.
@Eel Mass Effect was in Minecraft for Xbox and I think Playstation, but Minecraft changed to where it's one version on most platforms and through that, Switch owners are able to download it on the Minecraft Marketplace.
Man shepard dropped her like a brick
@CheepCheepAngler Yeah, but then in Mass Effect 3 she can get her revenge.
