7 cool places that you can visit in Wii Street U

Take a tour of the world with Wii U's free app

Wii Street U launched in the UK yesterday and we've been playing around with it, taking a tour of some of the world's most famous locations

The free app is available to download from the Wii U eShop now. It's basically Google Earth for Wii U (indeed it's powered by Google), meaning you can search for famous locations (or your old house) and have a look around using the Wii U GamePad. By moving the GamePad around, you get a 360 view of your surroundings.

Here are seven of the best places we've visited so far, starting with Houses Of Parliament. Admittedly this is just a tube ride away for team ONM and I see the Houses of Parliament every day as my train goes over Hungerford Bridge into Charing Cross. Still, for those of you who don't live in London, you might want to take a look.

Click through the gallery to see some other locations including Honolulu in Hawaii, Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, the Champs Elysee in Paris, plus the Taito and Shibuya districts of Tokyo.

    The Great Barrier Reef blew my mind when I went there with this. I am extremely impressed with it!

    Will this app be free to use forever?
