As with Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation 3, BioWare is prepping another interactive comic for Wii U, one that spans not only Mass Effect 1, but 2 as well.

Mass Effect 3 marks the first time BioWare's sci-fi RPG franchise is available on a Nintendo home console. However, won't players feel a bit out of the loop by jumping into the end of the trilogy? BioWare isn't planning on bringing the first two Mass Effect games onto the Wii U. But, they are offering something.

As with Mass Effect 2 on PlayStation 3, BioWare is prepping another interactive comic, one that spans not only Mass Effect 1, but 2 as well.

As in "Genesis" for PS3, you'll be able to make key decisions from the first two story campaigns. Will Wrex survive your abbreviated run through Mass Effect 1? Who will you side with in Mass Effect 2's climax? The abbreviated animated walkthrough will give Nintendo players a chance to play Mass Effect 3 with many of the galaxy-altering decisions that shape the finale... without the effort of having to play through 40-odd hours of gameplay.

      I wonder, how are they going to deal with all the minor decisions. I.e. Conrad Verner, the Sisters from Flux, and Rana Thanopolis? I mean they were, in fact, minor, however, they had a satisfying conclusion in ME3 if you went through their quests. Does that mean that no matter what you do, you can't save Conrad and turn him into a valuable asset later on in the game?

        That Conrad Verner scene was awesome.

        i think ME3 assumes those characters are dead if you don't import a save from ME2.

        i'm not sure how it was handled on the PS3 but i know you had to do a couple, almost obscure, things in ME1 to get the maximum number of war assets from conrad in ME3.
