The Wii U version of Madden NFL 13 has been shown off for the first time at EA's Summer Showcase. On top of the Madden features you've come to expect, the American football series will use the GamePad in several unique ways to really kick things off.

You'll be able to use the touch screen for play calling and swift tactical changes with no more than a few taps and swipes. You can also switch defensive assignments and draw out custom hot routes easily with the tips of your fingers.

Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will lead the commentary team, and you'll be able to take part in a career mode as player or manager to take yourself from rookie to legend.
