Need For Speed: Most Wanted will release on Wii U next year, EA has confirmed.

"We are very excited to deliver Need for Speed: Most Wanted on more platforms and to more gamers," an EA representative told Polygon.

"Starting Oct. 30, Most Wanted will be available on X360, PS3, PS Vita, Android and iOS. Then in 2013, Nintendo fans will be able to experience what it means to be Most Wanted amongst their friends on the Wii U."

Details on the Wii U version, including how it'll make use of the GamePad and whether it'll support the game's Cloud Compete feature, have yet to be disclosed.

It also hasn't been confirmed whether Criterion is handling the Wii U port, or whether the port has been outsourced to another studio, similar to Wii U's Mass Effect 3: Special Edition.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted launches in the UK this Friday, November 2, on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and PlayStation Vita.
