No EA games for the Wii U? 2

EA’s Frostbite 3 engine, which is used for most of their next-gen titles, won’t be supported by the Wii U.

Guess they’re being left out in the… heat? This means that a range of big titles, such as Battlefield 4, Star Wars, the next Mass Effect and eventually Dragon Age 3 will not get released on the Wii U.  Apparently, EA and DICE tested Frostbit 2 on the Wii U and was not happy with the results, thus choosing not to even bother porting the next version to Nintendo’s troubled tablet. 

While this is a notable loss for the Wii U – further limiting an already limited library – EA games were not particularly a core part of Nintendo’s catalogue.  In general, we expect a different kind of game, and playing style, on Wii U games.  

That said, I’m sure they could use all the games they could get at this point.
