Wii U Panorama View finally launches on 27 April

Take a tour of London for £1.79

As well as the Wii U Virtual Console, Wii U Panorama View will be released on 27 April following the Wii U System Update.

Wii U Panorama View was showcased at E3 2012 but it has taken nearly a year for it to be released. It gives you the opportunity to experience some of the world's biggest tourist attractions through your Wii U GamePad.

Wii U owners can use the GamePad controller to look in every direction to control 360-degree video guided tour. There are four video tours available at launch, including a tour of London from an open top bus and you can check out the streets of Rio during Carnival. These video tours cost £1.79 each but you can download an interactive preview for free.

    I don't see why anyone would pay for this tbh.

    I'll wait for them to go on offer. Everything always does.

    I don't understand why the eShop doesn't have all games on offer for the first week, then returns it to the rrp, then does another offer again in the future. Reward the early adopters!

    I can't see anyone paying for this it seems a cool idea, but not paying for good.

    certainly thinking about it, don't know what ones yet.

    It's really not worth the money I don't think... I tried it out at a Wii U pre launch event and it was a nice tech demo, but nothing I would immediately pay for. I'll download it for the free trails, but probably not past there...

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing how low the resolution is - I'm betting Nintendo went with 320x240. :wink:

    This is a truly innovative App.Just took an opentop bus around London.Amazing.Now to drop in on the Rio Carnival...Why bother leaving the house.This is something that really demonstrates the uniqeness of the WiiU.Impressed.
