EA Sports is bringing Madden NFL 13 and FIFA 13 to the Wii U this Fall. While Madden 13 won’t feature some of the new technology found in other versions, this won’t be the case with FIFA. According to producer Matt Proir, the FIFA 13 Wii U version will be the best looking one. Prior gives two examples of how the game will look better on the Wii U: crowds will have double the resolution compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360. On top of that, the pitch (i.e. field) will have much higher resolution textures with greater quality. He mentioned that just like the Madden team, the developers had limited time and resources this time around, and they wanted to see where they could “get the biggest bang for the buck”, and that turned out to be the crowd and the pitch — something players are looking at more than anything else on the screen.
This is exactly what we heard from EA last month, where developers promised that the FIFA 13 Wii U edition will have “key graphical improvements“. FIFA 13, alongside other EA games such as Madden 13 and Mass Effect 3, will be a Wii U launch title when the console is released later this Fall, most likely in November.
