Indie developer Jose Varela is bringing his mobile title Midtown Crazy Race to the Wii U eShop. The game is due out on July 31 in Europe, with the North American launch coming “soon after”. Pricing is set at $4.99 / €4.99

Varela informed us that Midtown Crazy Race will have off-TV play. Players will also be able to use the GamePad as the steering wheel.

Midtown Crazy Race offers the same features as the mobile version, and you can preserve the rotation of the camera view no matter how you tilt the GamePad. There is only one variation with the Wii U release: to unlock cars, you must win a certain numbers of races. All touch controls have been replaced with the GamePad buttons.
