Mass Effect 3 confirmed for Wii U

BioWare's space opera coming to Nintendo's new system

Nintendo has signed a deal with Electronic Arts to bring Mass Effect 3 to its new console, Wii U.

At last year's E3, EA CEO John Riccitiello pledged he would support Nintendo's new system with key games and franchises.

Mass Effect 3 is built on Unreal Engine 3, tech built by Epic Games which supports Nintendo's new console.

The announcement will likely be a foretoken to a number of recent Unreal Engine 3 games that will port to Wii U.
