Panorama View to be Sighted on Wii U eShop in Spring 2013

One of the first concepts that was shown off for Wii U, and which made an appearance at various demo opportunities and expo appearances for the system, was Panorama View. It's a relatively simple app that uses real-life video and allows you to view the action from any angle you desire, simply by moving the GamePad.

It's a clever demonstration of some of the technology in the system's controller, with the ability to enjoy a 360 degree view of scenes such as a flock of birds or a tour bus driving through London. Some wondered whether it'd be a pack-in free with the system, but its absence on day one meant it looked as if it was going to be left as a tech demo. Satoru Iwata has confirmed today, however, that it'll be available from the Wii U eShop as a download-exclusive in Japan sometime in Spring 2013. (Panorama View, Wii U)
