BioWare announces Mass Effect 3 Special Edition for Wii U

If you bought the Nintendo Wii U game console when it launched earlier this month or if Santa will be bringing you one for Christmas, you will be glad to hear that EA and BioWare have announced they will be bringing one of the best games of the year to the new Nintendo game console. The game is Mass Effect 3 Special Edition. The Special Edition of the game has been enhanced specifically for the Nintendo Wii U console.

The enhancements allow players to have more tactile control over combat using the Nintendo Wii U GamePad. The Special Edition of the game also has bonus content including an interactive content to get players the back story of Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2. The game will utilize the cool touchscreen GamePad by allowing users to use the touchpad to activate and customize abilities for the team, view enemies on the tactical mini map, and command squad members to move.

The movement commands are accomplished by pointing and dragging to a new location on the GamePad. Players will also be able to switch the game view from the TV to the GamePad allowing them to continue playing on the controller. The game also has some other interesting bonus content including an interactive motion comic created by Dark Horse Comics called Genesis II.

The Special Edition for the Nintendo Wii U also includes Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut and Mass Effect 3: From Ashes single player DLC content packs. The game also includes three post-release content packs for the game multiple player mode including Resurgence, Rebellion, and Earth. The game is available now for $59.99 in the US and will be available when the console launches in Europe and Japan.
