Google Maps with street view has made its way to the Nintendo Wii U today as a free for a limited time download, which was previously only available in Japan last week.
The application is called Wii Street U and as we previously mentioned, the application will allow you to not only navigate through Google Maps as you would expect on your computer or mobile device, but you also use the Nintendo Wii U’s GamePad in order to view the location from street level with Google’s Street View feature.
Using your GamePad to view your location’s Street View will offer an augmented-reality type feel as you’ll be able to move your controller around to view your location as if you’re actually there in person.
There’s no word just how long Wii Street U will be made available for free or how much it will cost once the free period runs out, so if you own a Wii U, be sure to snag the application as soon as you can.
