Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced today during the Japanese Nintendo Direct that Google Maps will be integrated with Panorama View to allow you to pick a location around the globe and view it on the GamePad. You can go into Street View mode and twist and turn the GamePad till your heart’s content. Sounds like a neat feature. Google Maps on Wii U will be free to download for a limited time after its debut in January in Japan.

    • I dont see it as useless. I’ve already taken my wii u on road trips, its almost taken up what my laptop use to do. Now if my laptops low on battery. We could go to a jack in the box parking lot use the wii u in my back seat and use it for google maps. :) Plus the majority of people use google maps to mess around to look with. Or explore places from there home.
