EA has released the first nuggets of information specific to the upcoming Wii U port of Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
In a Japanese press release (via Nintendo Everything) the publisher confirmed that the game will support full gameplay on the GamePad, allowing users to play independently from the TV.
The GamePad screen will also be used for displaying menu content, said the publisher.
The game is expected to retain the full suite of online features and be otherwise identical to previous versions.
EA confirmed the Wii U version back in October. It hits the Nintendo console in Japan on March 14. A Western release is yet to be confirmed.
