Looks like the guys on the Wii-U will be getting an extra shiny for their shiny new consoles.

Mass Effect 3 Special Edition has been enhanced for the Nintendo Wii U™ home console, giving players more tactical control of combat through the Wii U™ GamePad. It also adds bonus content, including an interactive comic that gives players the back story to Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2. Adding all of this to a game that has won more than 100 awards and received more than 80 perfect scores makes the Mass Effect 3 Special Edition a must-have launch title for the Wii U.

Mass Effect 3 Special Edition on the Wii U introduces an entirely new way to experience the game by using the innovative GamePad. Adding a level of control like never before, players can use the touchpad screen on the GamePad to activate and customize the abilities for their team, view enemies on the tactical mini map, and command squad mates to move by pointing and dragging to a new location. Players can also switch the game view from the TV to the GamePad, playing the entire game right on the controller.

The Mass Effect 3 Special Edition also includes six pieces of bonus content. For the first time ever, Genesis II, an interactive motion comic created by Dark Horse Comics, will give players who are new to the franchise the opportunity to experience narrated summaries of the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2. Players will be able to make crucial decisions that will impact each player’s story in Mass Effect 3 Special Edition.
