Rumor: Nintendo Prepping More Non-Games For DSiWare

Maps and dictionary wares may be in the works.

Thanks to the DSiWare service, Nintendo has tried to expand the portable's functionality from just a games machine to an integral part of your web-browsing, time checking, number crunching life.

According to Nintendomain (via GoNintendo), two more non-games are headed to the portable download service: Maps and Dictionary. No word on Mario or Animal Crossing skins.

Without a built-in GPS or non-WiFi Internet connection, the Maps program could face some issues as to how useful it would actually be (unless the maps are of the Mushroom Kingdom, which would be super useful). A dictionary probably wouldn't face any hardware restrictions and could actually be pretty useful if you don't have a paper version around and need to look up the definition of decalcomania.

Maybe they should just release that Mushroom Kingdom map. Or a Pokedex!
