Google Maps with Street View now live on Nintendo's Wii U eShop


This morning's Nintendo Direct was all about the games, specifically those starring the likes of Luigi. But inbetween news of DLC updates, Nintendo's Bill Trinen made casual mention of Google Maps with Street View availability for North American Wii U owners. To recap, the service -- which is free-to-download right now on the eShop -- brings the GMaps you know and love to the widescreen and the GamePad, as well. What's still unknown, however, is whether or not Nintendo intends to eventually charge users for access to the app's Panorama View-like feature, much like the company plans to do in Japan later this summer.
