FIFA 13 in Development for Wii U

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Also on 3DS and Wii

It's another year, so that means another FIFA game from EA Sports, an annual tradition that's never missed. The developer recently hosted a big reveal of features that will be new to this year's entry: Complete Dribbling will allow greater skill on the ball, First Touch Control will make the initial touch from a player more spontaneous and influenced by attributes, while Attacking Intelligence will apparently ensure that AI players will improve their movement when trying to score.

While new features like these are part of the tradition, EA Sports did also confirm that the title is in development for Wii U, though it wasn't willing to say any more. With EA potentially a key supporter of Wii U it could be that the Wii U version is being saved for E3, while the tablet controller could be a key part to various dual-screen control possibilities.

On the subject of dual-screen controls, FIFA 13 will also be released on 3DS as well as Wii.

Make it like PES on Wii but with touch screen controls please. Or Konami needs to make PES Wii U. I'm easy either way.

PES has been terrible for years now. FIFA isn't much better but it wins for having actual teams and players. I have to be honest, I don't play football games anywhere near as much as I used to. They've taken the fun out of them - they're too realistic now. Last PES game we got, we just couldn't score ANY goals, and this is PES experts. I'm on the look out for a new contender now - c'mon Sensible Software.

the first fifa game on the wii was great after that the rest of the fifa installments went downhill. pes just keeps getting stronger and stronger on the wii. but i do hope that fifa on the wii u is not some arcade crap like the last game. i still play pes.

@madgear
pes is too realistic. well i do agree with you on that and thats a great thing about that game, the learning curve is high and even though you think you have mastered the game every now and then you will get your butt handed to you.

EA and Ubisoft are looking like the primary WiiU 3rd party backers (healthy dose of Capcom as well).
I keep thinking back to how Nintendo specifically had EA come on the stage during their presser. Now we have a good idea of all the support and enthusiasm Ubi has for the new platform but EA has been relatively quiet (most BESIDES those kerazy French have been mostly mum on support). I am really expecting an impressive spread of WiiU software come E3!
