EA's President Frank Gibeau has revealed that the new Wii U controller has enabled EA to "uncover new plays to play Battlefield."
A Battlefield 3 trailer was shown off for Wii U at Nintendo's E3 conference earlier this week and now Gibeau has revealed how you might be able to play the first-person shooter on Wii U.
"What's really going to make it [Wii U] stand out for core gamers is the new controller. It's touchscreen, it's elegant and it works seamlessly with the experience. We've just had a little bit of time with it and we've uncovered new ways of playing Battlefield that I'm really excited about."
He added: "You can imagine that there are new ways of playing the game from a commander mode or for being able to drive from a different position inside of a vehicle. What I really liked about it was how good it felt in your hands. In addition to that it's super powerful. It allows you to do a lot of things that no other controller can do."
