Mass Effect 3 will be helping to spearhead the arrival of Nintendo's new console - the Wii U - as it was confirmed to be a launch release for when the console eventually releases later this year.
Making an appearance at the Nintendo press conference yesterday, Mass Effect 3 formed part of a swift showreel of rather familiar third party titles coming to the console in the future, including Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Darksiders 2, Trine 2, Alien: Colonial Marines, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, and a new game from Namco Bandai called Tank! Tank! Tank!.
We can't imagine anyone wanting to play ME3 without having first played the previous two games, but at least anyone who does go in blind won't give a toss about the ending.
