Electronic Arts announced Mass Effect Trilogy — a collection of the three Mass Effect titles — for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. This would have been perfect for the Wii U as many Nintendo gamers have not played the series. But unfortunately, Trilogy is not coming to the Wii U.
According to a long-time user of NeoGAF:
EA did not expect Wii U owners to buy Mass Effect, anyway, so no point in porting over three games. If ME3 sells gangbusters, they’ll consider it a proper summer home for Mass Effect.
And this leaves me feeling conflicted. I want Trilogy to arrive on the Wii U, but I also don’t want Electronic Arts to hold games hostage like this. It’s just lousy all-around.
