FIFA 13 coming to Nintendo’s Wii U
Video game publisher and distributor Electronic Arts has announced that EA SPORTS is developing its two most popular sports videogames—FIFA 13 and Madden NFL 13—for Nintendo Wii U.
Featuring award-winning gameplay, HD graphics and new ways to play, FIFA 13 and Madden NFL 13 promise to be incredibly innovative football games on the Wii U and they will be in stores around the world when the new console launches.
“We challenged our teams to develop innovations designed specifically for the Wii U, and to create new ways to play that would bring players of all abilities together,” said Andrew Wilson, Head of EA SPORTS. “Our teams have truly delivered creative new football experiences with FIFA 13 and Madden NFL 13 for the Wii U.”
In development at EA Canada, FIFA 13 features three new ways to play that bring players of all abilities together. Families can play together in Co-op Mode, where one player manages and up to four others play.
Team Management Control features interactive radar to send players on supporting runs, attacking or defensive, and touch screen control to change tactics, formations or subs on the fly.
Experience the thrill of managing your favourite football club in Manage Match, directing players from the side-lines and even giving half-time talks. View a statistical analysis of the match and any player at any time, enabling you to make informed decisions. Plus, connect and interact with friends like no other FIFA title. See your friends online and invite them to play, or message them in real time using touch screen typing.
FIFA 13 features innovations utilizing the Wii U GamePad that immerse players in the action on the pitch. Gamers can lift and look through the GamePad touch screen to aim the ball on set pieces and penalty kicks, then put the perfect curve on a shot and let it fly. Shake the GamePad to activate Touch Screen Shooting, removing the element of ‘hit and hope’, and allowing for pinpoint accuracy.
Madden NFL 13 on Wii U will be available in North America and Latin America but will not be available in Europe or South Africa.
