Those 10 or 20 people out there who are holding off on picking up Mass Effect 3 up for full price when the Wii U version comes out will have one piece of good news to anticipate. It turns out they won’t have to wait for the better ending. BioWare has confirmed the Extended Cut will be part of the basic game.
The only downside to this is that Wii U owners won’t experience the subpar, plot-hole ridden original ending. Which really isn’t that bad. The Extended Cut has a few issues as well, but it’s vastly superior. Trust me, you won’t regret the loss of the original, especially since the Extended Cut is just an expanded version.
BioWare didn’t state if the free multiplayer expansions, which have been trickling out over the months since Mass Effect 3, will also be included on the disc. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were, but BioWare could always decide to release the free expansions as separate downloads.
Now, all we need is confirmation of an interactive comic that covers Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 events and Wii U owners should be all set.
