Wii U edition?

#1 Posted by dawiiz (9 posts) -

I'm pretty sure this game has not been announced for Wii U. But this wiki has Wii U as platform. Do you guys think we will se a Wii U version?

Maybe. EA loves to release their games on as many platforms as possible and since the Wii U is similar spec wise to the PS3 and 360 it probably wouldn't be too difficult to port it.

You know what might be kind of cool? And mind you, this is only tangentially related, so mods, feel free to berate me at your leisure. But take the car customization options from Carbon, throw them into a future NFS game, and make the Wii U gamepad the way you both can customize and do up paintjobs (with Forza 4 type detail). That might actually be something that would make me seriously contemplate buying a Wii U.

In any case, I have no problem seeing this game on the Wii U as with all the newer releases. It might even be kind of cool if they had a cockpit view or something you could see on the gamepad, but I'll bet the functionality will (at least initially) be limited to maps and such.

That seems more like a rumor than a confirmation. Wii U will bring back splitscreen gaming, and most wanted would be perfect. I agree with "Sparky-B". Car customization with the gamepad would be rad. I think I read that Nintendo is making/publishing a forza/GT clone. I hope that ther's some truth there.

several leaks are hinting at a yet-to-be-confirmed Wii U version. a Brazilian ratings board has classified a Wii U version of the game (same happened before Blops2 got announced last week), European retailers list the game, even date it for launch day, a Criterion dev's linkedin page had Wii U listed as platforms ... pretty clear that a version is coming (plus, NFS games always land on all systems, even on Wii and DS).

You know what, that Sonic Racing Transformed game actually does that from what I've read. Well not the cockpit but the rear view mirror. You raise up the pad to check what's coming at yo ass from behind (no innuendo intended). Does Most Wanted even have customization options?

Project CARS maybe? Nintendo has nothing to do with that if that's what you're talking about. They currently have no racing games announced.
