However, it has now emerged that Australia will ironically not be getting the game, as Activision has confirmed it won't be made available Down Under.
This represents the fourth Activision Wii U title that will never see the light of day in Australia. The other three are 007 Legends, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct and The Amazing Spider-Man Ultimate Edition.
Fast & Furious: Showdown will release alongside the upcoming movie and will be available from 21st and 24th May in North America and Europe respectively. Australian gamers will sadly have to go without - short of importing it.
It's unfortunately reached the point now where news on Activision titles actually making the trip Down Under is more shocking. Hopefully the situation will improve so Australian gamers can enjoy the same games other PAL regions do.
What are your thoughts on this, Australia? Are you disappointed to be missing out on this one? Let us know in the comments section below.
