Need for Speed: Most Wanted will feature off-screen play
Need for Speed: Most Wanted is set for release sometime in 2013, but there has been no solid release date until now. EA Japan has finally confirmed that the game will be available in Japan on March 14th, which means North American and European dates shouldn’t be too far behind. In addition to a Japanese release date, the press release also mentions that during gameplay, menus and information will be displayed on the Wii U gamepad, with the option to play the game entirely on the controller.
It’s great to see more games embrace the fact that the controller can be used to display the game and hopefully more third-party publishers like EA will take incentive to make this possible for their games.
