Wii U’s television service TVii was supposed to launch with TiVo functionality when it went live across America in December. Both TiVo and Google Maps were supposed to have launched in January, but Nintendo has now confirmed that they have both slipped.

Speaking with Engadget, Nintendo confirmed that TiVo would launch on Wii U during a blanket, and rather vague “early 2013” release window.

Google Maps and its Street View function were in a similar boat, as Nintendo confirmed to the site that they would both launch in a “first quarter of 2013” window. Which isn’t too helpful really is it?

If you want to know more about what TVii is and what it does, check out the very first edition of ‘Reggie Asks’, which is focused on the app.
