EA claims that it still has a "strong partnership" with Nintendo, despite choosing not to release a selection of its latest titles on Wii U.

Both Battlefield 4 and Madden NFL 25 are set to skip a release on Wii U, with a Wii U version of FIFA 14 still in doubt.

But in a statement provided to Nintendo World Report explaining the company's decision not to ship Madden NFL 25 on the console, EA said that it still has a "strong partnership with Nintendo and will continue to evaluate opportunities for delivering additional Madden NFL products for Nintendo fans in the future."

Back in March, DICE producer Patrick Bach explained that EA hadn't developed Wii U support into its Frostbite engine, suggesting multiple upcoming games being built on the engine - including the next title in the Mass Effect series, an unannounced Need For Speed, and Dragon Age 3 - will not release on Nintendo's console.

EA released multiple titles for Wii U at launch, including ports of Mass Effect 3 and FIFA 13, and later launched a Wii U version of NFS Most Wanted. However, it has chosen to skip the console with its most recent multi-format releases, including Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14, Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel, Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3.

Last month, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli explained that the reason for Crysis 3's absence on the console was due to "a lack of business support between Nintendo and EA".
