The lights are on
It's not particularly surprising to hear that EA and Criterion's Need for Speed: Most Wanted is coming to Wii U, but it's always nice to get a solid confirmation. We liked the game quite a bit, so we're excited to see how Nintendo's dual screen can set up can tweak the experience.
Unfortunately, it won't be out in time for the launch of the system next month. A representative from EA told Polygon that, "In 2013, Nintendo fans will be able to experience what it means to be Most Wanted amongst their friends on the Wii U."

Eww Need for Speed? I haven't played any of them since the original PS (I think)
after I got my wii u! I'm gonna get this game too!
I like the idea but I'm not entirely sure if It'll be a nice fit for the Wii U. I'll just have to find out if I get one.
**BRAAAHHHH** this should've been a launch title
As happy as I am to see this heading to the Wii U, I still wish they'd just let Criterion make the superior Burnout games they were known for.
Nope. No surprise at all. Seems like it'd be a nice fit for the Wii U gamepad. Except for Mario Kart, the Wii hadn't had much in the name of racing.
i think it would be hard to play on the wii u
It'll be nice if Nintendo released another pro controller with analog triggers.Digital triggers are amazing for shooters but not so much for racing games.
I'm actually really excited for this. I haven't bought a NFS game in a long time, not to mention any other racing game. I got the demo on PS3 and it was just awesome (until my cop smashing session was abruptly cut short). I'm definitely gonna pick this up next year. Love all the titles coming out for this thing. Only three days!!!
