Designed specifically for Nintendo's console, Most Wanted U has features specifically built to take advantage of the Wii U GamePad. Co-Driver mode allows one player to drive using the Wii Remote or Wii U Pro Controller while another player uses the GamePad to provide control and navigation assistance on the interactive real-time map. Other GamePad specific features include the ability to seamlessly switch between cars with a simple press of the touchscreen, as well as the option to play off-screen using just the controller's built-in screen.
