EA have had to perform something of a climb down after bashing Nintendo's struggling Wii U console on Twitter for April Fools' Day.

All of these quotes were taken directly from the official FrostbiteEngine Twitter page:

"Frostbite now runs on the #WiiU since it is the most powerful Gen4 platform, our renderer is now optimized for Mario and Zelda."

"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."

The Tweets were quickly taken down, apparently after Thirteen 1 posted about them. So what do you think? A cruel joke taken too far? Or just good ol' fashioned trolling on April Fools' Day?
