Need for Speed: Most Wanted will feature off-screen gameplay when it lands on Wii U this year. This is according to a press release issued by EA Japan, which also dropped a date of March 14 for the racer. Details on the Wii U version have been a bit scarce since it was announced for the platform, but it looks as though menus and various car-related information will be accessible through the touch screen. It’s also good news knowing that you can play entire game using the GamePad, which will allow others in the house to watch their stories on TV while you race around Fairhaven City.

With a release announced for Japan, it shouldn’t be long before we hear something on Europe and North America. Thanks, Nintendo Life.
