Nintendo Wii U to get Google Maps, get your GamePad controller ready for Street View
Anthony Garreffa / 5 years ago
Google Maps pretty much dominates the mobile and PC markets, but what about consoles? Well, Nintendo’s next-gen Wii U console is about to get a taste of the Maps application next month.
Google Maps for the Wii U will use the console to display a satellite map on the gamer’s television, while the GamePad controller will display Street View – a nice way of doing things. You’ll be able to pan around locations, as well as virtual tours of locations capable with your Wii U.
The application will launch in Japan next month and will be free up until March 2013. There’s no news on whether Google Maps will make its way to the US, but I don’t see why it won’t – in this apptacular world we live in, it would truly be disastrous to not see this app released to all Wii U’s.
