The official German Mass Effect Facebook page tells us to tune in to Nintendo's conference today:

Nothing more is known. The English page doesn't list this post. Haven't checked other languages.

Soooo...what could it mean?


(Shock if told)

Well last year at E3 when EA came on the stage at Nintendo's Presser they said they would be supporting WiiU with most of their manor franchises, and on the screen they had a picture of 10+ franchises and Mass Effect was one of them.

So, if LovePlus should get a WiiU version/port, too, a single console would wield the power of Western and Japanese dating sims combined. Nothing could stop its owners from never leaving the house again.

Wait they get 2 & 3 only right?, 1 is MS only, so NIN gets the Sony treatment?

Be crazy if it's

MS: Mass Effect 1, 2, 3
Sony: Mass Effect 1 (Animated Graphic Novel), 2, 3
NINTY: Mass Effect 1 & 2 (Animated Graphic Novel), 3
PC: Origin *POKER FACE*

LOL

Would be cool if they somehow managed to get ME1 on there, but I doubt it. 2 and 3(except the ending) are amazing games as well though, and Nintendo only gamers should get a chance to play them

It would make sense for EA to push a bunch of already proven IP onto Wii U as re-releases. Throw Mass Effect, Battlefield, Need for Speed, Burnout and everything else on there to get in on the launch fever and sell copies for a game that otherwise has been run dry for sales.

Same thing Warner is doing with Batman.

So, what male and female Sci-Fi characters can they place in Mass Effect from Nintendos gallery, that can be romanced now.... Samus Aran *check*

What else? ;p

Even if its a port who cares? This is a good thing no? The Wii wouldn't even get a port for this and not all launch games will be new IPs or exclusives. This along with games like ACIII, Arkham City, and maybe other big third party games is always a good sign to me, even if they are ports.

Mass Effect "Pervert Sheperd" Dating Sim; use the Wii U gamepad gyroscopes controls to take kinky upskirt shots while your date is dancing/ordering from the menu/shrieking in terror

Well, I think Microsoft holds the publishing rights for the first Mass Effect on consoles.


Also people bitching about "LOL WiiU is nothing but ports" or similar should know that they are at least ports of very good games so far. It's also what Nintendo needs if they want their console to be successul.

I'm sorry for eventual Nintendo-fanboyism from today onwards until the rest of the week.
