EA CEO John Riccitiello has said Mass Effect 3 is currently the “best piece of software” that’s been announced for Wii U.

The BioWare RPG was announced for the system at the Nintendo press conference on Tuesday as part of a b-roll video, but the announcement was warmly received.

“We looked at the Wii U launch line-up yesterday and we’re very pleased there was a lot of applause for ME3,” Riccitiello said in a investor call last night.

In fact I think it got one of the loudest applauses, so we’re pleased that people see it as the single best piece of software that’s been announced for the platform.”

Despite the announce, no more details was given on how the game would work for the system or if it’d be a launch title.
