Madden NFL 13 on the Wii U includes features designed to highlight the console's GamePad controller, EA announced today at its Summer Showcase.

Users can call up the playbook on the GamePad for "fast, easy-to-use playcalling," and also tap on players to send them in motion or redraw receivers' routes. The feature is also available on defense, where players can quickly tap on their defenders and change their man or zone assignments.

It's the kind of functionality that's also available on the Vita version of Madden NFL 13. However, the Wii U version of Madden 13 hews much closer to the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 version, not to Madden NFL 12 (like this year's Vita game does).

Madden NFL 13 will launch on Wii U this holiday season.
