Mass Effect 3 For Wii U Has ‘Extended Cut’ Packed In For Your Convenience

Posted on July 17, 2012 AT 12:12pm

Even though Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U may be showing up more than a year late to the party, anyone playing it on Nintendo’s upcoming console won’t have to deal with the non-choice of the original three endings. Everything in the free “Extended Director’s Cut” DLC package that had to be downloaded separately for PS3 and Xbox 360 will be included in the Wii U version.

Siliconera brings word straight from BioWare:

While Bioware wouldn’t say too much about the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3, we got confirmation that the Extended Cut will be part of the package.

“The extended ending is basically going to be part of the game instead,” Michael Gamble, producer of the Mass Effect series said to Siliconera. “You won’t have to download it.”

And that’s about the only thing that we know regarding the Wii U version, although given the GamePad’s touchscreen interface, it doesn’t seem hard to guess. At the very least, using the Galaxy Map and scanning solar systems with it would be a no-brainer.

If the development team wanted to get crazy with it, everything in the Power Wheel could be playable on the tablet controller screen, too. As long as the controls do something inventive and the graphics are up to par, I don’t think we should worry.
