Nintendo's Wii U will not get Omega downloadable content for its version of Mass Effect 3, Electronic Arts announced on Nov. 19.

The Wii U version of the game will contain some DLCs on the disc, but major episodes like Leviathan and the upcoming Omega are left separate, Eurogamer reported.

Players had assumed that DLCs would be available through Wii U eShop.

"Unfortunately it will not be available for Wii U," read an official Mass Effect 3 Twitter statement.

"We don't have anything to announce at this time, but we'll definitely keep you posted if something comes up!"

EA was asked about future plans for the release of an additional Mass Effect DLC for the Wii U version, to which it said, "never say never.".

No specific reasons have been given for the non-inclusion of the DLC.

BioWare confirmed that the Omega DLC will be released Nov. 27 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. It will be priced at 1200 MS Points or $15.

According to BioWare, the single-player content is "double the size of the largest DLC we've done for Mass Effect 3". The DLC will feature the character Turian. Players have to battle Cerberus' General Petrovsky for the control of Omega.

"Early impressions show that Mass Effect 3 is one of the strongest Wii U launch titles available, so don't get too disappointed about the Omega content. There's also unique controls available via the Wii U GamePad, and EA may decide to unveil some sort of deal in the future which will score Wii U users with the Omega content, as well as the missing Leviathan, Firepack and Groundside Resistance extras," Product-Reviews reported.

The Wii U version of FIFA 13 and Black Ops 2 will not feature full content when compared to the same games in other consoles.
