Developer DICE has in an almost cruel April Fool taunted Wii U owners with a mock announcement of support for the console.
The engine behind titles such as Battlefield 4, Need for Speed: Rivals and Dragon Age: Inquisition has famously been ported to almost all platforms except Wii U. Its lack of support for Nintendo’s machine has certainly played a part in the console missing out on a string of multiplatform EA titles.
“Frostbite now runs on the #WiiU since it is the most powerful Gen4 platform,” the Frostbite Twitter feed said. “Our renderer is now optimized for Mario and Zelda.
A later tweet added: “Frostbite will power #HalfLife3, coming out summer 2014! #WiiU exclusive.”

Good news, we have finally fixed and optimized our 'netcode'. Uses quantum entanglement for Zero Latency connections. Exclusively on #WiiU.— FrostbiteEngine (@FrostbiteEngine) April 1, 2014
