EA Shares The Unique Wii U Features In Need For Speed Most Wanted

Today EA explained how Need For Speed Most Wanted will take advantage of the Wii U GamePad's unique features.

EA has highlighted three new features for the Wii U version of Most Wanted. The first is a new local co-op mode, which allows one player to steer using a Wii Remote or Wii U Pro Controller, while the second player assists with the GamePad. Assistance options include distracting cops, changing the night and day setting, and adjusting how much traffic there is in the world, among other things.

Wii U owners can also use the GamePad's touchscreen to tweak their cars and explore the city, or play the game entirely off-screen if someone else is hogging the television.

The Wii U version of Most Wanted launches on March 19 and includes the Ultimate Speed Pack DLC free of charge.

  • We don't want Need for Speed on the WiiU, we want Crysis 3 you idiots! EA sucks so hard.
  • I don't think I'll purchase the game. But I have to say the off-screen game play is awesome. I've been using it for Mass Effect 3 and can't be happier. When you have to share a TV it's a great feature. It's been great for my wife and I. She can watch her awful shows and I can still be on the couch with her. I hope that more of the Wii U games will continue to incorporate the off-screen game play..
  • its almost like wii u is playing catch up with the past yr of games :/ still nice for ppl that want it tho i guess .... to be clear i love my wii u but still can't help but think it looks that way :/
  • I want local multi-player back. Won't buy another NFS until this happens. I rent the heck out of it though....

  • Interesting.

  • Most of these changes are just kinda superficial. . . not a big deal at all.

  • I got this for my 360 and loved it so it looks like I will be getting this for the Wii U as well.

  • I'm very excited for this and it's not far away. Can't wait to get it.

  • Including the DLC is cool.  That's the best way to release a game late, or a port in general.

    I may get this.  Criterion and all.

  • These are some nice new features! It would be fun to play against your friend and put a TON of traffic to annoy them! :P This is yet another reason why I should buy this game for my future Wii U.

  • Oooooh this sounds pretty awesome!

  • Yes! this is going to be a fun title!  Looking forward to it.

  • Carter. you think Wayne`s blog is really great, last tuesday I got a gorgeous volvo when I got my check for $9279 this month and also 10-k lass-month. it's actualy the easiest job Ive ever had. I began this 8-months ago and almost immediately started to make minimum $70, per-hr. I use this web-site, http://www.bit90.com

  • Personally i want  the dead space franchise
