FIFA Soccer 13 available now for Wii U
First soccer title on the new system promises innovation
EA has yesterday launched FIFA Soccer 13 on Wii U in North America, bringing the biggest sports franchise to Nintendo’s brand-new console.
“We’re very proud to be offering our two most popular sports franchises to a brand new audience,” said Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice President, EA SPORTS. “Both the Madden NFL and FIFA development teams have created new and different ways to play and we believe fans will really enjoy the unique experience they can get only on Wii U.”
FIFA Soccer 13 features utilize the GamePad and 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 Soccer 13 also has new modes exclusive to the Wii U. Control all of your players with the Interactive Radar and create your own 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. Compete with friends in Co-op Mode, Career Mode or Tournaments with one player managing and up to four others playing.
FIFA Soccer 13 is also available for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
