Need for Speed: Most Wanted Pulls a Wii U-turn

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Hey, Wii U owners. Are you feeling like you’ve been left in the dust by all of the other platforms since they’ve gotten their hands on Need for Speed: Most Wanted?

Fret not, brave Wii U owner, because EA and Criterion Games is bringing the game to you this March! And because you’re rocking it on the GamePad, you’ll be getting some unique features, like a new local co-op mode called Co-Driver, in which Player One drives using either the Wii Remote or the Wii U Pro Controller while Player Two uses the GamePad and acts as a navigator.

Player Two on the GamePad is basically Lord of the Streets because they get the ability to distract cops, switch from day to night, and even control the traffic. Of course, how helpful Player Two is depends on their relationship with Player One.

Players can also use the GamePad to switch out mods and cars, track milestones, and find the city’s hidden goodies, all in real-time. This is an amount of control that’s pretty sick for a racing game.

And if you’re sick of looking at the TV, you can always wander around your house and play the game off-screen on the GamePad. Take it to the kitchen and race while you baste. Take it out to the vegetable garden and outrun cops while you plant crops. Take it to the bathroom and avoid getting hit while you — wash your hands.

The game will include the Ultimate Speed Pack as a bonus, which contains the McLaren F1 LM, Lamborghini Aventador J, Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, and the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder. All of this automotive goodness will be coming your way on March 19th, 2013 in North America and March 21st, 2013 in Europe.

Tell us in the comments if you’ll be picking up this illegal, but oh-so-fun street race! And if you’re going to be the GamePad navigator, let us know if you’ll be a benevolent Two or if you aim to bring chaos to Player One’s race!
