Australian retailer outs new racing title

Australian retailer EB Games has confirmed that Fast & Furious: Showdown is coming to the Wii U.

The game looks set to coincide with the release of the sixth movie in the long-running movie franchise. EB Games has a release date May 22nd.

VG247 has some gameplay details. Apparently, the storyline is packed with “heists, hijacks and shoot-outs” and features events from earlier movies as well as the aforementioned sixth cinematic outing — due to hit the big screen on May 24th.

Here's some more:

Play through the story taking on various roles, and switch it up as you please; take on skill-based high scoring challenges on your own or cooperatively with a buddy, and compare your results against your friends list; complete 31 missions through eight chapters in eight locations around the world.

Missions are comprised of one or more objectives. Objectives include:

  • Get to Location – get to a target location as quickly as possible
  • Transport – transport a person, vehicle or item to a target location
  • Win Race – win a street race by finishing in 1st place
  • Catch Vehicle – catch up with an escaping vehicle
  • Survive Pursuit – survive a police or gang pursuit
  • Protect Vehicle – protect a target vehicle from being destroyed
  • Enter Vehicle – get your character inside the back of a moving vehicle

Firebrand are a quality studio and they know how to do motion wheel controls, Trackmania on Wii is fantastic. Hopefully this game has enough development time to be good, seems like it came out of nowhere.

The more games, the better.

Dang it, Grub, got me by seconds, haha. It does seem like it came out of nowhere though.

@Chriiis Get ready for more. Most of the third party devs for the Wii U are likely to be under an NDA with Nintendo till E3 or the like. Or, at least I hope so
