EA producer Matt Prior has revealed that FIFA 13 on Wii U will be the best edition of the franchise available on consoles. Prior says that there have been numerous graphical improvements including double the resolution of the crowd, and an infinitely more detailed pitch. He also went on to say that you’ll be able to access your friend list directly from the Wii U GamePad.
“Two things we have improved just in terms of the fidelity and quality are the pitch, If you have a look at the pitch texture there’s a lot more detail in it and we’re working on that as we speak to hopefully improve it even further. One of the common complaints is the crowd, and if you look at the crowd on the Wii U it’s double the resolution. We had limited resources in which to improve, so we wanted to make sure we got the biggest bang for the buck, if you will. Obviously the pitch is something you’re staring at like 90 percent of the time when you’re playing, so crowd and pitch were two areas we focused on.”
“A friends tab that’s always there in the front end on the [Wii U GamePad] so you can tap it, you’ve got a list of friends,” he explained, later adding that it pulls from “the friends list from the Wii U console.”
