Need for Speed: Most Wanted to get Wii U release in 2013

EA has confirmed that the latest entry in the Need for Speed franchise, Most Wanted, will be heading to the brand new Nintendo home console, Wii U.

"We are very excited to deliver Need for Speed: Most Wanted on more platforms and to more gamers," an EA representative told recently launched gaming website, Polygon.

"Starting October 30, Most Wanted will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Android and iOS. Then in 2013, Nintendo fans will be able to experience what it means to be Most Wanted amongst their friends on the Wii U."

Look our for our PS3 review tomorrow. We'll also have a Vita review for you, hopefully later this week.

I really wish they would be more agressive with the Wii U. I can understand that they can't get out at the same time as the PS3/360 versions due to the Wii U release date but I really don't understand why they are delaying it to 2013. Likely when the Wii U version DOES come out this will be reduced from the January sales on the other consoles.

totally agree with you... amazing point made! nintendo always shoot themselves in the foot they need to learn else they will never compete.. me personally think the wii U is heavily over priced so i wont be investing but maybe when that price drops be worth getting 1

It's hardly Nintendo shooting themselves in the foot, they've done their bit, getting them to make the game for their console, it's EA/Criterion who are responsible for it's late arrival. I'd say Nintendo have done a good job getting third party support this time, and have secured lots of popular franchises for the Wii U.

That's cool, it's one of the games I want but can't afford at the moment, hopefully the Wii U version will be available when I can afford it.

Already pre-ordered the Xbox 360 version, otherwise I'd have considered this but really it's a game that I want to play sooner rather than later.
