New Mass Effect 3 DLCs Not Coming to Wii U

After releasing Mass Effect 3 on the Nintendo Wii U last year - bundled with all the DLC released for the game at that time ~ it appears that EA shows no interest in including the two-new DLC packs on the Nintendo Wii U.

My Nintendo News reports:

"A Bioware representative has told IGN that they have no plans to bring the Citadel or Reckoning Mass Effect 3 downloadable content to the Wii U. Both of these well-received packs were available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC at launch, but it looks as though EA and Bioware are ignoring Wii U owners. It now seems fairly unlikely that Wii U owners will get any future Mass Effect 3 DLC.

A BioWare representative tells IGN that 'There are no plans to bring Citadel or Reckoning to the Wii U at this time.' "

Could this be due to EA and Nintendo's on-going disagreement? Who knows. (EA, Mass Effect 3, Nintendo, Wii U)

Half-assed port, through and through. I hope too many people weren't suckered into buying this thing. As much as I really don't care for the Wii U, its owners deserve better than EA's greasy cash grab.

Well, if they didn't announce the trilogy for 59.99 for every other console, then I imagine more people might have bought the game for 59.99. What a ripoff EA!

I was almost considering buying it until that announcement even though I already own the whole trilogy on both PC and Xbox.

Not only that but the game will be available on plus.

WTF is up with the Wii U versions price?

Seriously!! How could they have actually expected that to sell? Wii U gamers are idiots who spend their days on Mars, in cave, with their eyes closed, and their fingers in their ears singin' "la la la la la I am not listening!"

a company can't do that and then expect it sell well, and then have those sales determine whether or not to port the whole trilogy, when they really should have ported the whole trilogy to begin with.

They devalued their product just as they devalued NBA Jam with that ordeal a few years ago.

I imagine EA and Nintendo's relation is pretty strained right now anyway, especially since Nintendo made the(right) decision in not using Origin to handle all of their online services.

Wow, that sucks for Wii U owners.

There's always one thing I wondered is why they just released me3 for Wii U, when they released a trilogy pack for the rest? Especially since ME3 Wii U and ME trilogy were retailed at the same price? ( Actually cheaper on the PC at 50usd)

Is it just me or are alot of 3rd party devs giving Nintendo the middle finger lately? Sloppy, rushed ports, lack of dlc, delaying and or moving their wiiU games over to ps3 and 360, etc. no wonder wiiU isn't selling well, the 3rd parties are treating it like the plague.

Just like the ps3 in its early days. Wii U just need some time.

It certainly seems that way. I hope the Wii U picks up later this year when Nintendo release Mario/Mario Kart/Zelda and developers start to take notice.

They should have released the whole trilogy on Wii U, or nothing at all.

Nice job EA.

As for Bioware, well, just keep burning those bridges. No level headed gamer views you as the developer you once were anyway.

Not that they're missing much, but how can anyone say these type of things aren't clear signs that the wii U is in trouble.
Obviously N has always made great 1st party titles, but that's seriously not going to carry them the entire generation. Unless they're pumping out a mario game every 6 months they need 3rd parties, who have been totally non-committed so far. You can't have your customers thinking that they're getting a sub-standard or incomplete version. Nintendo needs to demand this stuff before it becomes the norm or theres no way they'll be able to compete with the upcoming competition.
