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.

The whole shebang only seems to have kicked off in April; compare and contrast with God of War, which has been in the works for seven years.

The Michael Bay-directed trailer for Need for Speed: The Run was “liked” enough times on Facebook to warrant a release by EA. It’s posted below the break, and it is, indeed pretty swish. We noticed a couple scenes in it that reminded us vaguely of his Transformers flicks, but, we could also be imagining things as well. Watch for yourself below. The game is out in mid-November. Thanks, MotoGamesTV.

After earlier reports outlining EA’s plans to fire 400 and close nine studios, it seems the first outfit to be axed is Need for Speed developer Black Box.
According to IGN, many of the studio’s staff are being relocated to EA’s Burnaby facility in British Columbia.
Apparently the closure will not be immediate, meaning SKATE 2′s development should remain unhindered. Full thing through the link.
