Google Street View now available on Wii U in Japan

Nintendo makes Google Street View app for Wii U available in Japan's eShop

| Gaming News | Posted: Feb 8, 2013 12:03 am

Nintendo has brought Google's Street View to the Wii U after a bit of a delay. Users in Japan can now download the application from the Nintendo eShop for free, though it isn't available in other markets yet. The Street View app was originally supposed to come to the Wii U in January and be free to download until March.

Due to Nintendo's delay in providing the app, the app will be available for free from the eShop until May. The App is tailored to make use of the GamePad, though it supports the television as well. When viewing Street View imagery on the GamePad, users can look around by moving the GamePad. While looking at imagery on the GamePad, the television displays the user's location on a map.

 

Nintendo has not said how much the app will cost once the free time period passes, though you might as well download it while it is available for free. Nintendo has also not specified when the app will be coming to other markets such as the United States.
