FIFA 13 Wii U has been confirmed but, as revealed in the new issue of Official Nintendo Magazine, this isn't simply a port of the game that is coming to Xbox and PS3 in September. Sure, it will have improved attacking intelligence, dribbling and first-touch control plus the new Player Impact Engine but the Wii U version of the world's best football game also boasts exclusive GamePad-only features.
Read on to find out how FIFA 13 Wii U will use the GamePad. However, if you want to read our verdict on EA's new football game, make sure you read our FIFA 13 Wii U preview in the September issue of ONM which also features the first new screenshots of the game.
Note: The images in this feature are taken from the multi-format versions rather than the Wii U game. You need to buy the magazine to see the first FIFA 13 Wii U screens.
1. Touchscreen TacklingFIFA 13 Wii U makes it easy for players to switch between defenders as you can take control of a player by tapping on him on the Wii U GamePad's touchscreen. You can then tap on the attacking player, either to man mark him or tackle.
In many games, switching between players is done automatically, so this gives you an extra level of control. You could imagine the man marking tactics being useful when defending against top class players such as Ronaldo and Messi.
