EA’s Need for Speed Most Wanted U hits stores in North America today and in Europe on Friday, March 22, delivering a driving game experience that was specifically built for Nintendo’s newest console, making this version of EA and Criterion’s game more fun, more social, and more interactive than ever.
As you might expect, many of the game’s Wii U-exclusive features are based around the Wii U’s GamePad controller. For example, the local co-op mode, Co-Driver, enables one player to drive using the Wii Remote controller or the Wii U Pro Controller, while another player uses the Wii U GamePad to support with control and navigation assistance via an interactive real-time map. This player can use just their fingertips on the touchscreen to distract chasing cops, switch from night to day, or turn on enhanced performance for any of the vehicles, or even control the amount of traffic on the road. Players can also switch into their favourite cars, track milestones, uncover the hidden gems of the city, and much more, all via the touchscreen. The entire game is also playable off-screen on the Wii U GamePad.
Rob O’Farrell, Executive Producer said, “At Criterion Games, we really took the time to learn and understand the Wii U. When creating Need for Speed Most Wanted U
, we wanted to maximize the console’s power to deliver an immediately fun and accessible racing experience. We are very proud of the end result.”
Other editions to the Wii U version of the game are the inclusion of the complete Ultimate Speed Pack expansion, giving the player the chance to drive five of the fastest cars in the universe, including the Lamborghini Aventador J, and the Paganini Zonda R.

More fantastic news for Wii U owners today with the announcement from Square Enix Europe that the Director’s Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be released exclusively on the Wii U in the near future. According to Square Enix, this Wii U version is the definitive version of the acclaimed action-RPG, and will offer a variety of Wii U GamePad features, such as touch-screen hacking, interactive map editing, augmented sniping, grenade throwbacks, and many other neural hub enhancements. As well as in-depth Miiverse integration, the Director’s Cut also offers access to developer commentaries and in-game guides. And that’s not all, with Tong’s Rescue mission and the complete Missing Link chapter being integrated seamlessly into the Director’s Cut narrative flow. Other improvements for the Wii U version include overhauled boss fights, refined game balance and combat, enhanced AI, and lush visual improvements, all adding up to the best version of the game to date.
In Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the year is 2027, a time of innovative neuroprosthetics, but also a time of chaos, conspiracy, and social inequality. You play as Adam Jensen, who has been cybernetically augmented against his will, and becomes embroiled in a global plot. The game offers the player many different ways to play, providing an immersive experience where every gameplay choice has lasting consequences.
