Mass Effect 3 Was released earlier this year for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Now that the Wii U is coming out in about 60 days, ME3‘s being released for that too. Get ready for Mass Effect 3: Special Edition. Nintendo junkies (and they do exist) will finally get to take the fate of the galaxy into their own hands as Shepard, the game’s protagonist. Continue reading for the preview!
First things first: there’s no way the game could include the awesomest feature ever is there? What feature am I referring to? The fact that the people who owned the first Mass Effect got to carry their save data over to Mass Effect 2, and then Mass Effect 3. This is one of the coolest features in any video game series EVER… but since the last two titles obviously weren’t released on the system, there’s really no way to bring this customization feature over to the Wii U. Just kidding. Since BioWare is secretly a race of super humans, they’ve come up with the perfect solution: Motion comic. You heard me, BioWare has partnered with Dark Horse to make Genesis 2, a choose-your-own-adventure style motion comic where players will get to make the same story altering choices given to players in the previous two games. Those choices are then used to create a personalized save file for the main game. Problem solved.
The game will also come with the “From Ashes” expansion pack for the previously released versions, and the alternate ending. These two add-on features will come standard with the game; no extra download necessary.
This seems like enough content to please anybody; BioWare totally stopped there, right? WRONG. On top of all that, players are given the ability to tell their squad mates where to go, customize and select powers for both Shepard, and his squad mates, and even play the entire game on the game pad’s personal screen.
And to make it just a little bit sweeter, the Wii U version of ME3 also comes with the new weapon: The Laden, which can target and kill up to six enemies at once. The game features a robust multiplayer mode, which comes with the ”Rebellion,” “Resurgence,” and “Earth” expansion packs free. Essentially, BioWare’s added seven additional maps to to your selection free of charge.
Mass Effect 3 already has raving reviews, and it’s no doubt a must play game. When the special edition is released alongside Wii U this November 18th, an even larger audience than the game already has will be exposed to this world for the very first time. And with the truckloads of extra content that BioWare has generously added on for free, it’s obvious you won’t be getting bored with this title any time soon.
