Mass Effect 3 Wii U dev: “We’re very conscious of not wanting to mess up”

Having now been confirmed as the developer bringing Mass Effect 3 to Wii U, Straight Right have discussed the pressures involved in the process.

“It’s going to be a launch title, but of course we don’t know quite yet when the hardware will launch. We intend to be there that same day,” Tantalus Media CEO Tom Crago explained to Eurogamer.

“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.

“You look at the game and think ‘how could I possibly make this better?’ The Wii U gives you that opportunity with the GamePad. But first and foremost you say, ‘well, I don’t want to screw this up’. You want to replicate the experience on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as sympathetically as possible. But then you say, ‘how can I enhance this experience?’.

“We tried to get the game looking great and singing on Wii U, and then use the GamePad to complement this.”

Mass Effect 3 is confirmed to launch within the Wii U launch window.
