Mass Effect Trilogy Headed To Wii U?

mass_effect_trilogyAlthough Mass Effect Trilogy hasn’t been announced for Wii U, the collection has a possibility of releasing on Nintendo’s new console. So far, BioWare didn’t confirm whether the game will eventually come to Wii U; however, the developer says, “Never Say Never,” on the matter.

Mass Effect Trilogy includes all titles in the Mass Effect series to date, costs $59.99 and is available for purchase on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

For comparison’s sake, Wii U owners can purchase one title in the series – Mass Effect 3: Special Edition – for $59.99.

GS: What is BioWare’s plan regarding the Wii U? Mass Effect 3 was released onto it but fans were surprised to learn DLC, like Omega or Leviathan, wouldn’t be available for it. Are there plans for the first two games to be released onto Wii U as well as DLC?

BioWare: We have a terrific company in Australia [Straight Right] who did a good job putting Mass Effect 3 on Wii U. Again, I can’t really comment on rumored speculation about the game or the franchise. Wii U is a console we feel is really cool and that more Mass Effect would look great on it, so we do have plans for Wii U but nothing to announce at this moment.

GS: You guys said a similar thing when asked about a Mass Effect Trilogy for PS3 before you announced it.

BioWare: Yes we did, and look what happened. As we like to tell people on Twitter, “Never Say Never.” The same can be said about the Mass Effect Trilogy for Wii U. Never Say Never.

Mass Effect Trilogy Announced, But Not For Wii U

Developer BioWare today announced Mass Effect Trilogy, a collection of all three Mass Effect games in one package. The compilation can be purchased for $59.99 when it launches November 6th for Xbox 360 and PC; PlayStation 3′s version will be available at a later date.

For the sake of comparison, Mass Effect 3: Special Edition for Wii U will release sometime between November 18th and March 31st, of next year, and also costs $59.99.
