Street U Powered by Google: Travel the World at Home

Wii Street U powered by Google is one of several new highlights for Wii U. With Wii Street U™ powered by Google, you can step into Google Street View with an immersive experience that will make you feel like you’re actually there!


This new application allows users to travel the world using their Wii U GamePad controller. It offers the map data and 360° panoramic Street View images gathered by Google for a unique form of virtual exploration.
Jumping to a location is easy : you can use the GamePad touch screen to type in exact addresses to fly to your favourite places, start exploring, or instantly travel to over 70 fascinating, hand-picked locations around the globe.


Thanks to the motion sensors inside the controller you can move it 360° to enjoy the entire view of the sights. The 360° window on the world can also be enjoyed on the TV screen in the living room.


Nintendo, along with Google have released Wii Street U powered by Google as a free (limited time only) application via the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.
