EA has confirmed the Need For Speed: Most Wanted Wii U UK release date. The Criterion-developed racer will be released for Nintendo's console on 21 March, boasting new exclusive modes.
As you might expect, you can play Need For Speed: Most Wanted on the GamePad touchscreen but there's also a co-op mode called Co-Driver which enables one player to mess around with an interactive map, providing control and navigation assistance for the player who is driving using a Wii Remote, Wii U Pro Controller or, as you can see below, the Wii Wheel.
This means the player with the GamePad can distract pursuing cops, switch from night to day, activate enhanced performance for any car and even control the amount of traffic on the road. It sounds like a similar concept to FIFA 13's Manager Mode.
Players can also change their mods, switch into their favourite cars, track milestones and uncover the city's hidden secrets as they're driving on the Wii U touch screen, ensuring nothing ever slows them down.
In other news, Need for Speed: Most Wanted Wii U also includes the Ultimate Speed Pack DLC meaning players can race some of the fastest cars ever made, including McLaren's F1 LM, Lamborghini's the Aventador J, the Pagani Zonda R, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and Hennessey's Venom GT Spyder which can travel at speeds of up to 275 mph.
Kart racers aside, there probably hasn't been a good driving game on a Nintendo console since Burnout 2 which was also developed by Criterion. Are you going to buy Need For Speed: Most Wanted on Wii U?
