EA: 'Bigger line-up for Wii U than on Wii.'

At E3 last year, Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello pledged support for Nintendo’s new console, the Wii U. However, at this year’s expo, aside from a port of Mass Effect 3, not a single EA project was sighted. But there’s a lot to come, according to games label president Frank Gibeau. 

“We’ve got a couple of more games in development for Wii U and we’ll have a bigger line-up for Wii U than we did on the Wii,” Gibeau told CVG.

“It is the first next-generation platform coming out so we’re really supporting it.

“Just looking at E3 and where we’re at, we wanted to hold our fire a little bit on a couple of the other games that we’re working on. We’ll have more announcements this summer on the rest of the Wii U line-up.”

Stay tuned.

    I hope that they don’t add extra dialogue or story in the Mass Effect 3 Wii U game, because that would suck for the people who already have it on the other systems already and don’t want to get a Wii U.

      @Miranda Lawson: I can see Mass Effect 3 with some DLC content that is already released for the Wii U version. Batman Arkham City for the Wii U is basically the GOTY Edition.

        @Rezar:

        It really wouldn’t surprise me if the version of Mass Effect 3 on the WiiU came out with a prequel-section similar to Mass Effect 2 on the PS3 in order to make up for the previous games not being available on that system.
