There's a demo version on Google maps. http://maps.google.ca/maps?hl=en&tab=wl and it has a surprising amount of detail I saw labels for buildings and such, as well a detailed pictures for landmarks. Street view changes all the colours into NES palettes.

There's lots of cool monuments in this game. Check out the Sydney Opera House!

Ha, I wonder how Nintendo would react to it. Who would actually physically manufacture the cartridges?

Still, this is so fucking epic. I could help but watch all the video with a huge grin on my face.

Some of the jokes Google provides are damn cool. It's just a shame they only last for one day and this one I do like quite a bit for the 8-bit charm.

Google could have all of my money if they did manufacture this. I hope they keep quest mode on Google maps for at least a few days.
