We know that Need For Speed: Most Wanted is coming to the Wii U in 2013, but up until recently there was no solid indication of when that would be. That's now changed as EA Japan has listed the release date as 14th March in that region - presumably North American and European dates will follow shortly.

The press release also gives some details regarding the game itself. During gameplay, menus and information will be displayed on the Wii U GamePad, and there's also the option to play the game entirely on the controller.

While it's a bit odd that EA Japan has broken this news despite there being little information elsewhere in the world, we expect more details soon - keep your eyes glued to the site until then.
