Electronic Arts Inc. today launched FIFA 13 on Wii U™ across Europe, bringing the world’s biggest sports videogame franchise to Nintendo’s brand-new console. With beautiful HD graphics and exclusive new features using the Wii U GamePad™, FIFA 13 Wii U delivers FIFA’s award-winning HD console gameplay—including the Player Impact Engine, Precision Dribbling and Tactical Defending—an authentic football experience, and new ways to play.
FIFA 13 features innovations utilizing the GamePad that create new ways to play and immerse fans in the action on the pitch. During a match, simply shake the GamePad to activate the shooting zone, touch the screen to pick a spot precisely on goal, and fire away. With free kicks and penalties, look through the GamePad screen for the player’s on-field perspective to aim the ball, and then let fly. Take control of a specific defender by tapping on the player using the touch screen or tap on an attacking player and watch your closest defender mark or tackle him.
FIFA 13 features new modes exclusive to the Wii U. Take the reins as manager in all of the main game modes and make key strategic real-time decisions using the GamePad. Control all of your players with the Interactive Radar and create your own defence-splitting runs. Analyze match or player stats—including the opposition—in real-time to make managerial decisions and then change any facet of a team’s tactics without interrupting the game.
Experience the thrill of managing your favorite club in Manage Match, directing players from the sidelines and even giving half-time talks. Compete with friends in Co-op Mode, Career Mode or Tournaments with one player managing and up to four others playing.
Go online and play head-to-head in FIFA Seasons, one of the most popular mode in FIFA, competing in ranked online seasonal play with promotions and relegations. Plus, connect and interact with friends like no other FIFA title. Use the Friends tab to see your friends online and invite them to play using touch screen typing and real-time messaging.
