Mass Effect 3 Wii U dev working on triple-a Square-Enix port

Monday, 15th October 2012 15:05 GMT By Dave Cook

Mass Effect 3 is being ported to Wii U by Australian studio Straight Right, and the internet has unearthed another porting job by he studio – a triple-a title from Square-Enix? Deus Ex: Human Revolution? Hitman: Absolution? Tomb Raider? Final Fantasy 13? Place your bets below.

Members of the GAF forums first spotted that Straight Right’s CEO Tom Crago said in a previous interview:

“We’ve made a few bets on Wii U actually so we’re certainly hoping it does well. In addition to ME3 we have an original Wii U title in development, and we’ve started on another big game in a well known franchise that will be released in 2013.”

The community then took to LinkedIn to check out the online CV of Straight Right’s technical project manager Chris Wright, which reads:

    (Blood)Moneys on Hitman i think.

    Would work well with the pad i think. In fact, i’ll hold out buying it on 360 in case the Wii U gets a better version.

    I was thinking over the weekend that a good use of the Wii-U pad would be sandbox games. A real test of Nintendo’s resolve in getting the best of third party stuff would be whether GTA5 comes to WiiU. The pad could make it the definitive console version.
