EA to confirm Wii U sports plans
Will confirm titles on July 18th & 19th
As promised, Electronic Arts will be holding an EA Sports Open House to announce its plans for the EA Sports franchises on the new Wii U console. While Electronic Arts has indicated that they are planning a number of releases for the Wii U, they have not yet announced their full initial release slate of titles for the Wii U; and of the titles announced by EA so far, none of them have been from the EA Sports family.
It is expected at the Open House Event on July 18th and 19th that the following EA Sports titles will be confirmed as coming to the Wii U platform: FIFA 13, Madden 13, NBA Live 13, and NHL 13. Sources tell us that a few other titles will also be confirmed as coming to the Wii U. In the case of many of these EA Sports titles, it has been a long time since some of these titles have appeared on a Nintendo system.
EA cut back on the number of EA Sports titles that it was releasing for Nintendo platforms, as sales have not been what the publisher expected from these releases.
