Mass Effect 3 to be a Wii U launch title, includes interactive back story detailing the events of Mass Effect 1 & 2.
BioWare has released the first screenshots and details on the upcoming Wii U release of Mass Effect 3.
Mass Effect 3 will ship alongside Nintendo's console later this year, and feature a brand new control system designed around the GamePad.
Shots of the controller suggest that the GamePad's touchscreen will be used to display a map of the area, plus offer easy access to each character's talents.
In addition, the Wii U release will feature an interactive back story detailing the events of Mass Effect 1 & 2. Players will be able to make decisions during key points of the back story which will impact the narrative in their Mass Effect 3 playthrough.
Mass Effect 3's online multiplayer will also make the jump to Wii U.
"BioWare is thrilled to launch our first ever title on a Nintendo console and our Mass Effect team is very proud to have the critically acclaimed Mass Effect 3 experience brought to the Wii U as a launch title," BioWare said on its blog.
EA released details on multiple Wii U titles during its summer showcase event last night.
