Expected, wasn’t it?
Nintendo and EA have struck a deal (somewhat) and it has been confirmed that whenever you play an EA game on the Wii U, you will be required to have an Origin account. All your details with Nintendo will be transferred and an Origin account will be made for you.
In short- you’re gonna need an Origin account to play EA games on the Wii U.
“You need an Origin Account to play EA’s titles online,” said the Origin policy (via Gamespot). “Your Nintendo account information will be provided to EA so that we can establish an Origin Account for you.”
The Origin policy added: “By signing up to play EA’s titles, you agree that limited user account information can be transferred to EA. Information transferred to EA includes your Mii information, email address, Nintendo Network ID, friend list, country, language and date of birth but does not include credit card number or other financial account information.”
