I hope we get this!

This is why I love Iwata. I can't think of many company presidents that are game for a laugh.

I'm wondering if Wii Street U is the final version of the Panorama View tech demo. I prefer the idae of this over the demo, although I think it wold be nice to add a function that lets you take a virtual guided tour with full audio description. Nintendo has experimented with similar software in the past (the 3DS Tour of the Louvre art gallery), so such a thing is a small possibility.

Either that or use the Wiimote and Nunchuck to jog like in Wii Fit and jog through a virtual Vegas strip, or even a well known marathon route.
