Mass Effect 3 'Omega' DLC not coming to Wii U

The Wii U can support downloadable content, but BioWare apparently isn't planning on making use of it in Mass Effect 3. While the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 versions are set to get the Omega DLC at the end of this month, the company says it will not be available for Wii U.

Word was given by tweet from the official Mass Effect 3 account, in response to a question from a fan. It's unclear if this means the DLC won't be available simultaneously on the Wii U, or not at all. The Wii U shop won't support downloadable content until December, so it's possible this will just be coming later. Shacknews has contacted BioWare and will update as more information becomes available.

The Omega DLC pack is said to be the largest pack so far, centering around taking back the Omega station with the help of crime boss Aria T'loak.

In a follow-up, BioWare also confirmed that it has no current plans to release the first two games on Wii U, like it's preparing to do for the PlayStation 3. Wii U players will just have to rely on the new Genesis 2 comic to fill in the gaps, which according to our own Andrew Yoon does "a poor job of summarizing the games."
