Eat this Kindle: Nintendo announces 100 Classic Books

11:36 AM on 02.24.2010


The DSiXL isn't as large as an iPad or as comfortable as a Kindle, nor will it come equipped with a digital delivery service that offers more than games, but Nintendo still plans to get into the electronic book arena. In June, weeks after the release of the larger and less portable handheld, Nintendo is publishing 100 Classic Books, a cart that contains 100 "classic books."

Announced at the ongoing Nintendo press conference moments ago, Bram Stroker's "Dracula" was the only book specifically mentioned. We're willing to guess that the majority of works will be public domain, but that'll need some official confirmation that we can't obtain at the moment. Until then, enjoy the pretty picture and the marketing on the front of the box. "A Portable Bookshelf," it screams.
