In an Video Interview at GamesRadar, Alex Ward from Criterion Games gives a little insight in the upcoming Wii U version of Need for Speed Most Wanted. There he mentions that the Wii U has more memory than PS3/Xbox360, so they were able to use the PC textures and assets to provide a higher graphics quality with more details, increased drawing distance and improved lightning.
Mostly Alex Ward shows in the video the new Co-Driver mode, which should make optimal use the the Wii U features and gives a second player the control over the world, traffic and cops, which gives himthe possibility to support the main player in its stressful races and cop chases.

The Realistic Plugin, a nice little tool for Need for Speed Most Wanted was released last month by Racer_S, who also created the Camera Mod.
This tool contains everything needed for a realistic experience in Need for Speed Most Wanted, it includes the Camera Control, along with some bugfixes and as a bonus it includes options to properly use your force-feedback wheel or gamepad. Originally the game had some weak inverted effects and really slow turning rates, which are taken care of in this plugin.
