Mass Effect 3 is coming to Wii U when the new console launches next week. We've got the upcoming port in our office. Here's a quick look.

If you've already played Mass Effect 3, don't worry about buying it again. The new features are interesting, but the game has not changed very much. (This edition comes with the From Ashes and Extended Cut downloadable content, as well as the three multiplayer packs. There's also a new interactive comic and a new heavy weapon (the Ladon-597).)

What's really cool here is the potential that the Wii U can bring to role-playing games like Mass Effect 3 in the future. I've written before about the ways that the Wii U could make RPGs better. A role-playing game designed from the ground up for the Wii U's great controller could do some awesome things indeed.
