Classic literature on a Nintendo?
Books no longer need be read in the traditional stinging paper-cut inducing way.
A collection of popular novels will be released on 26 December. The DS release will be entitled 100 Classic Book Collection.
Developed in partnership with publishing heavyweight HarperCollins the collection will include classics like Jules Vern’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in Eighty Days as well as tales from legendary detective Sherlock Holmes.
The software also features a brief synopsis of each book and recommends reads based on what mood you are in.
It has been well documented that more books will be available via the DS’ Wi-Fi function. The initial package will set you back the modest fee of £20.
The Nintendo Wii has managed to redefine gaming for many users but the question still remains will the 100 classic books collection redefine reading DS users across the globe?
