Game Profile

Nintendo has worked with publisher HarperCollins to select and include titles from the world’s of Adventure, Drama, Mystery, Fantasy, Romance, Tragedy, Comedy Women’s and Children’s literature so you can now join Gulliver on his travels, go Around the World in Eighty Days, sleuth with Sherlock Holmes or disappear 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. With 100 books in one small portable system you might never be stuck for anything to read again.

Not sure what a particular book is about? The story synopsis mode details the story and themes of each title without giving away any of twists and turns of the plot. If you’re stuck for somewhere to start, simply tell the software your mood and it will present a range of options to choose from. The software also offers an electronic bookmark so you can pick up right where you left off and also offers adjustable text sizes to further enhance the reading experience. You can also download up to ten additional novels using Nintendo’s Wi-Fi Connection service and store them on the Nintendo DS console.

The ‘100 Classic Book Collection’ is part of Nintendo’s Touch! Generations collection – a range of software that offers a unique variety of accessible ways to play. Touch! Generations titles can help you train your brain, play sudoku, help improve your visual abilities, make music or connect with people thousands of miles away.

No matter what your age or whether you’ve never picked up a games console before, Touch! Generations titles can help rediscover old talents and develop new skills.

I really hope that this is released in North America. That or the compact DSiWare version of the title '20 Classic Book Collection.' I've thought for a while that the DS is perfect for books as you can hold it like a small book and 'flip' the page with a flick of your finger on the touch screen. Great idea for a game and I sincerely hope that NOA brings this title to our shores.

I'm so sad this isn't in the U.S.. Nintendo must think the U.S. is full of dumb.

This is a great development which I've enjoyed for about a year. What we need now is something similar for classic poetry
