Nintendo's Satoru Iwata has confirmed that a Google Maps app will be coming to Wii U in 2013
The Google Maps app on WiiU will be available in Japan from the end of January and will be free to download until the end of March. It's also coming to the UK, but Nintendo didn't say how much you'd have to pay for it after that date.
Using Google Maps, you can zoom in on an area in the map to be presented with a view of the street. On your computer you'd then use the mouse to pan around the street but on Wii U you can move your GamePad to look around.
A pretty cool feature we think...
