Update:  The Wii U version of the game will be rendered at 720p. Check out our updated report

For the first time on a home console, Mass Effect 3 will run in full 1080p resolution, according to September's Nintendo Power, issue V282.

The article has also re-confirmed that the extended cut of the ending sequence and other various DLC characters and weapons for the four player online co-op mode will also be included on the disk.

Mass Effect 3 for the Wii U is currently scheduled to release alongside the Wii U at launch.

Sounds good. Too bad its probably going to be $60, whereas right now the PS3/360 can be had for only $20.

UNPOSSIBLE WEAKER THAN 360

I heard a rumor that Mass Effect 3 for the Wii U won't be powered by Unreal Engine 3... but instead being powered by Umbra 3 now that Umbra Software is officially a partner of Nintendo.  Is that rumor true?

1080p eh

while I'm cold to the idea of ME3-U, imagine F-Zero in 1080p

the mouth, it drools.

We don't know the price for the Wii U version. I should also point out that it will contain some (if not all) of the paid DLC.

Yeah, its possible EA might not go full price on it. We shall see.

Before anyone takes this as FACT, I feel it needs confirming by NP or Bioware because it could easily be a miss-print.

Umbra 3 isn't an engine, it's a middleware that helps improve the performance of an engine. ME3 U is still on UE3.
