Via its support page, an announcement says Nintendo will discontinue Wii Street U in March. As one of the first paid apps (originally free for a limited time), it allows users to explore the Street View maps offered by Google Maps. The app features a 360-degree panoramic view of many places around the world, with the use of the Wii U’s Game Pad.

The gaming company also shared the announcement on the app’s page
[] though what is confusing is the right time the app will be discontinued. The app’s page says at 8pm PT while the support page says 11:59 pm PT, both times on March 31. Nintendo UK says the app will no longer be available for purchase as of January 31 at 23:59 local time.

Users who have purchased the app will be able to download it again until the service is no longer in use. Nintendo has not stated the reason for the removal of the app and service.
