The upcoming Wii U port of Mass Effect 3 will not be handled by BioWare.

Instead the porting duties will be handled by the Melbourne-based developer Straight Right, who previously worked on the iOS version of Shift 2: Unleashed.

"Happy to confirm that we're developing Mass Effect 3 for Wii U with our friends at BioWare!" said the developer on its Facebook page.

Mass Effect 3 will be one of the Wii U's launch titles. A date for the console's release is yet to be announced.

The game's first chunk of single-player DLC, Leviathan, launched on 360 and PC yesterday.
