Need for Speed: Most Wanted Wii U Release Date Announced

Posted on January 17, 2013 AT 08:55am

EA has announced the official release date for the Wii U version of Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and also offered up a few of its unique features.

The Criterion racer will be available in the U.S. from March 19 and in Europe from March 22. The Wii U version of the game includes a new co-op feature called Co-Driver, which allows one player to steer the car using a Wii Remote and the other to navigate and provide assistance via the GamePad.

“Using just their fingertips, a partner can distract pursuing cops, switch from night to day or activate enhanced performance for any car and even control the amount of traffic on the road,” the publisher explained. “This is the ultimate advantage for gamers who like to stir up trouble for the cops, their friends or just for fun.”

Players can also use the GamePad to switch cars and mods on the fly without having to pause the game.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
