Mass Effect 3 for the brand new Wii U

Add another great title to the growing roster of games coming to the Wii U — Mass Effect 3 comes out on Nintendo’s new console in just a few days.

Back when the console hadn’t yet been released, we were a bit worried about the somewhat anemic list of titles coming to the Wii U during its launch window, but now that Mass Effect 3 is on the list, the Wii U is looking more attractive than ever.

We’re not sure if developers at BioWare have taken full advantage of the Wii U’s touchscreen controller — this trailer shows a brief flash of a player navigating a menu, but that’s about it. There’s no evidence here that the controller will be used in more creative ways, but then again, Mass Effect 3 doesn’t really need much improvement.
