Mass Effect 3 Omega DLC skipping Wii U

Nintendo version of BioWare's role-playing game will not receive latest single-player expansion.

by

When Mass Effect 3's single-player Omega expansion arrives later this month, it will release only for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, not Wii U. BioWare tweeted the news recently, saying to a fan, "Unfortunately it will not be available for Wii U."

In a follow-up response, BioWare teased that the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3 may someday add new content beyond what is included on the disc. The developer said, "Never say never. :)."

Mass Effect 3 for Wii U launched yesterday day-and-date with the new system in North America. The game comes bundled with the From Ashes content, Extended Cut, and multiplayer expansions Resurgence, Rebellion, and Earth. It does not include the single-player Leviathan expansion.

Mass Effect 3 Omega is due out on November 27. For more, check out GameSpot's Now Playing video feature, embedded below.

not surprising really EA have been having a go at Nintendo about the Wii U, EA wont even acknowledge the Wii U as a new console 

i reckon Nintendo and EA had a bust up and Nintendo told them to eff off so i wouldn't count on many more EA titles coming to the Wii U not that they will be missed EA are a terrible company in fact apart from Mass Effect i can't think of the last EA game i actually brought

No problem really... if people had wanted to play Mass Effect they'd have bought a grown up console way before now.

I feel bad that the WiiU gamers can't play Omega.  Anyways I hope this DLC is good Leviathan was decent but not the best.  I do like how they made all of those free map packs even though I stopped playing the multiplayer long ago.

Too bad for the wii u. They might be skipping it, due to the fact that they might have to re-make it for the wiiu.

Since ME 3 sucked and all its DLC sucked even more, I dont see the problem?

More DLC equals more of my wallet being sucked dry of money.

Am i the only one who though this should had been in the game from the start ? i dont mind getting it finaly as dlc but as i played i though the whole aria arc was missing, it was made worse after they released those comics.

Devs will not like doing DLC until Nintendo gives people more memory. Not saying that they wont but yeah.. leaning more on the no go side. >:[     

 

Nintendo more memory please.

I think Nintendo will lose out if Wii U doesn't have DLC support.

That's a raw deal right there.

So it seems the Wii U will have to wait on Omega a bit, big woop. I can already see the internet trolls bringing this topic up and claiming the Wii U will not ever get the Omega DLC.

How will the Wii U handle DLC with such a tiny hard drive?

If it sells 1 million U owners will see new DLC if not they will ignore it.

i think they are waiting to see what ME3 sells like on the Wii U first as the PS3/360/PC version have been out for a while so a lot of people already have it i rekon that if ME3 sells well enough then the Wii U will get the expansion DLC's

You all have to note, the WiiU just came out and a lot of gamers have not yet finished it on WiiU and plus they have to remake the DLC so it will work right on the WiiU for different gameplay.

 @TTDog If they wanted to play Mass Effect the ordinary way we wouldn't have bought a console. Wii u is actually good because of the gamepad and wii support. In comparison to pc, xbox 360 and ps3 are so crappy it's unbelievable.

 @AlexFili I probably won't get one myself until I see some more games that suit my preference (action-like and less party, family and kid games. Decent lineup so far but nothing that makes me want the system yet) But yeah, if Sony and Microsoft beat them there, then Nintendo will suffer sales on Multiplatform games

 @Link3301 who cares about this dlc anyway , most people are done with ME3 already since several months , even more thanks to that ending which killed all replay value

 hard drive expansions are not exclusive so feel free to go buy a bargan hard drive ( up to 2 terabite i think) and plug it into the back

 @Breyant I think and I could be wrong , but the wii u has the ability to have an external hardrive attached to it.

 @Liamfarley1998  Totally unbelievable to be honest... maybe you've just forgotten what its like to play games with a proper pad after all the years of playing on a gimmick laden console.

 @AmnesiaHaze  @Link3301 Speak for yourself - Me and all my ME loving mates are hanging out for Omega, you sir/lady, are not speaking for the general consensus thank you very much.

 @AmnesiaHaze  @Link3301 Speak for yourself, please. The common opinions you hear on the internet to do not equal the opinions of "most people", just the extremely vocal group of video game haters that run rampant online.

 @Khasym  @musalala ahhh wow, so just another accessory that's "not required, but pretty much required" lol

 @TairuSzoola  @emperiox  No. It has not. It's pre-orders are modest. Trust me when I say it won't sell at all this Holiday season and that many who pre-ordered it will be trading them in.

 @TTDog Wait you just said years of playing on a console I've owned for 2 weeks. I have unfortunately  never played on a proper pad. If I wanted I could buy one and hook it up to my pc. I assume you are talking about something like this http://www.slipperybrick.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/05/ergomedia-500-gaming-pad.jpg because that is what a search acquires. If your talking about a console controller I'll have you know they are poor and inaccurate, which is why I rarely play console fps games.

 @IndySandbagTrik  @Link3301 i like ME too but dont feel like going back to play it after 8 months again and noone on my friendslist isnt playing ME3 either for a long time , its great that you still enjoy the game though

 @LindBergh2007  @TairuSzoola  @emperiox Why, it's the first next gen console. Everyone who has seen my wii u is amazed by it. Look, I don't like participating in console warfare but here's how it works. Nintendo makes innovative consoles and they are good at it. Sony and Microsoft, make watered down shitty pc's. Get a life kid.
