Wii U version of FIFA 13 missing critical items

“Purely and simply because Nintendo’s online is in its infancy.”

The Wii U version of a multiplatform game–and a popular one at that–will not be on par with the PS3 and Xbox 360 version.

The game I am talking about is FIFA 13 and it won’t feature the FIFA Ultimate Team. What? That is very popular, I have no idea why it wasn’t included. The producer of the Wii U version of FIFA 13 called the Nintendo online “in its infancy”, and also mentioned that UT is a very complex feature.

So what was Nintendo doing all these years without developing a solid infrastructure?

“We don’t have Ultimate Team, purely and simply because Nintendo’s online is in its infancy,” he told Eurogamer.

“It’s building. FUT took five years to appear on 360 and PS3. They’re very complex features. It’s potentially something we could do further down the line. But in terms of initially getting the foundation set, that wouldn’t have been technically feasible, because it is such a complex mode.

“Some of the later improvements on FIFA 13 we weren’t able to get into the game. So we’ve got version one. They’ve got version two.”

Nintendo gets shafted again by the third-parties. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

    The author seems to have completely ignored all the unique features which the WiiU version of FIFA 13 has, that the other versions don’t. Not to mention the improved graphics which EA has confirmed. And Ultimate team isnt exactly “critical” now is it? Why the negative angle all the time? You could just as easily run the headline “PS3 & 360 missing ‘critical’ items” couldn’t you? The more time passes the more I’m convinced that gaming journalism is to blame for the decline of the industry. Narrow minded or hyperbolic articles by “journalists” who seem to think they work for the The Sun, influenceing susceptible customers with nonesense headlines. It’s just damaging, and embarassing in equal measure.

    Edit: on second glance, I didnt mean to infer that the author of this article is narrow minded. I’ve never met the guy/gal so how would I know 🙂 My point still stands though.

The Precision Dribbling, Advanced physics etc are all there.

      That’s good to know lumpy. But the omission of Ultimate Team is still huge. The game looks good on the Wii U though.

      Of course to some it will be. I can only speak for myself and my friends who I know play Fifa. None of us have ever touched Ultimate Team on the PS3. Might just be us though, but I never knew it was such a big deal.
      I’d like to think the features that ARE in the WiiU version (exclusive features like the Manager/Co-Op mode and other Gamepad related functions) outweigh this ommision, or at leats balance it out.
