A new game coinciding with the release of the sixth Fast & Furious film will be released on May 22nd for the Wii U. According to VG247, the storyline has numerous missions revolving around heists, hijacks and shoot-outs. The game will feature events from previous movies, as well as events from the sixth movie that will hit movie theaters on May 24th. Additional gameplay details are:

Play through the story taking on various roles, and switch it up as you please; take on skill-based high scoring challenges on your own or cooperatively with a buddy, and compare your results against your friends list; complete 31 missions through eight chapters in eight locations around the world.

Missions are comprised of one or more objectives. Objectives include:

  • Get to Location – get to a target location as quickly as possible
  • Transport – transport a person, vehicle or item to a target location
  • Win Race – win a street race by finishing in 1st place
  • Catch Vehicle – catch up with an escaping vehicle
  • Survive Pursuit – survive a police or gang pursuit
  • Protect Vehicle – protect a target vehicle from being destroyed
  • Enter Vehicle – get your character inside the back of a moving vehicle
  • Wreck Objectives/vehicles – wreck target objects or vehicles
  • Avoid Detection – travel past security cameras at high speed
  • Rescue Teammate – rescue a teammate in distress
  • Hijack Vehicle – hijack a target car
  • Steal Cargo – steal cargo from a moving vehicle

The game is currently being developed by Firebrand games. This is something of a surprise, but given the drought of games currently available, we’ll take it.

      Lol I’m kidding. Fuck Yeah!!! Bring that shit to Wii U. We are starving damn it, feed us games!!!!!!

      • Johny

        haha this comment made me laugh xD … haha true… but that kind of stuff WILL feed the nintendo haters when they see it 😛

      • XD everyone’s desperate for new games. Thing is, Nintendo has them. Third parties dont 😛

      • MetroidZero

        The Phoenix will rise at E3…no worries 🙂

  • So Need For Speed is going to make a Movie and now Fast and Furious is going to make a video game. Interesting

    • Goginho

      It’s like singers becoming actors and actors becoming singers.

      • Nintedward

        It’s like Peter becoming Homer :O !

      • Well Drake and Rick Ross are actors!

  • audi lover

    I bought nintendo to play nintendo games they are the best quality and most entertaining in the industry, apart from the mass effect series and elder scrolls on xbox and god of war on ps3 there hasent been many games on those platforms I havent got bored with quickly, admittedly I do own all 3 but I simply havent played them since getting my wii u, but any extra support from 3 party is a bonus, but are movie tie ins really good, juries out on that one

  • Johny

    well…… its a game made from a movie… so its obvious theres a 95% chance it will just plain SUCK (these NEVER do good… they’re just made for a quick cash in after a popular movie and stuff) but hey… whatever… we’re gratefull for wii u support… and we wont turn it down

    • Gregory Edcius

      i thought the first nfs underground was supposed to be an fast and the furious game anyone knows about this ?

  • I’m not a fan of driving games anyway.

    • uPadWatcher

      Why the hell are you posting your comment anyway?

  • Robyn Hermann

    Now the question is do I get this or the Need For Speed?

    • If you like Racing games Most Wanted is a pretty good game. I have it on the 360 and to me it is like they combined NFS and Burnout together. I like the open world and the driving tracks are good too.

  • dylanbob121

    Is this bring made by EA?If so,I will pass.EA has lost my respect after they could not cooperate with nintendo with crysis 3.

  • DemonRoach

    With as much reported “slowdown/frame-rate issues’ in Lego City Undercover, I doubt this game will run well.

    • dylanbob121

      where did you learn that? lego city hasn’t even come out yet.

    • ps4rules

      There’s no frame-rate issues. The game has a very steady frame-rate.

  • uPadWatcher

    Are they FREAKING serious… another racing title for the U?! Let’s hope Fast & Furious: Showdown reaches the same hype status like Criterion Games had with Need for Speed: Most Wanted U.

    • dylanbob121

      dude,thats like the 2nd one.calm down.The next one will be project cars and thats all I know…

      • Potential Rapist

        No, not 2… look at the games list for Wii U games out and the list for games coming. There are many Racing titles.

        • Cubester_64

          Some people like racing games. Yet I understand not all people like them much.

  • Guest

    I was happy until I saw this was published by Activision…I’m guessing it’s gonna be a cash-in.

  • BGhp

    • Jon Turner

      There’s also a chance that Final Fantasy XIV will hit WiiU too, as the director of that revamp is seriously considering it after finishing the PS3 build.

      • Jimmy D. Fugate

        Any quality AAA title is welcome.

    • dylanbob121

      • Jimmy D. Fugate

        Well don’t worry, that makes two of us.

    • The next CoD game coming to Wii U isn’t a rumor… its an obvious fact

      • Jimmy D. Fugate

        I didn’t know they confirmed it?

    • Potential Rapist

      Whoa, Whoa, Hold on and wait until July. I bet my money that there are heaps of more games than those listed coming to Wii U. And that’s not even including indie titles.

      • Jimmy D. Fugate

        I agree…Nintendo probably has a lot planned for E3. And I only included retail titles.

    • Nintedward

      you forgot a good few. Where is watchdogs , Project cars and Aliens colonial marines ?

      • Jimmy D. Fugate

        Did you press “see more”

    • Jason Wilkins

      The list of available games or future games isn’t important. What is important is what games are exclusive to Wii U and what games, due to exclusivity elsewhere, CAN”T be played on a Wii U. The Wii U is unique in that many developers releasing multiplatform titles are not releasing them for the Wii U meaning the Wii U not only is denied titles exclusive to other consoles but also some that aren’t exclusive.

      Here is a list of the titles that you can expect on any eighth gen. console EXCEPT the Wii U that have been announced thus far.


      Need for Speed: Most Wanted future DLC

      Madden 2014

      Mass Effect 3 DLC

      Dead Island Riptide

      Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

      Tomb Raider (reboot)

      Tiger Woods PGA World Tour 14

      Metro: Last Light

      Crysis 3

      Saints Row 4

  • Zorbo85

    LMFAO seriously the wii u is having good games getting cancelled left and right and games like fast and furious get the green light?
    This game will sell nothing seriously nintendo get your act together everyone on the planet knows that pikmin 3 and a mario game should have been launch titles to help shift units.
    After the wii u failure nintendo will never make another home console again!!
