Australian studio Straight Right is currently hard at work developing the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3. According to Tom Crago, the head of the Melbourne-based company, the dev team is trying its hardest to create a compelling experience that’s as close to flawless as possible. “We’re very conscious of not wanting to mess up, given the level of expectation and the fact that we’re taking something which, on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and PC, was exceptionally good,” Crago told Eurogamer.
Aside from trying to make Mass Effect 3 a worthwhile endeavor for Wii U owners, Straight Right is also working on some new projects. “We’ve made a number of bets on the Wii U, so we’re certainly hoping that the platform comes strongly out of the gate,” explained Crago. “We’ve got two other titles in development. One of them is original, our own IP, and another is based on another big franchise that will come out in 2013. It’s a big title and you will have heard of it.”
All right, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m officially stoked to find out what these folks have planned. It’s obvious that Straight Right is hoping Nintendo’s upcoming platform succeeds. The studio is clearly backing the console, and while Mass Effect 3 may be its way of showing that the Wii U can do what the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 can do, these two unknown projects could very well determine what the console does on its own merits.
