Mario Leaps Across the Virtual Pages of Kindle

Amazon presumably thrilled

You might have an Amazon Kindle e-reader, but chances are you probably don't: all that reading is understandably off-putting. You know what might brighten it up? Some Mario, of course.

That was seemingly the thought process over at Klab, a Japanese company behind a NES emulator for Kindle. Although it's perhaps best not to consider the usefulness of such a programme, stomping Goombas whilst pretending to read Jane Austen has a certain appeal to it.

If Mario isn't your kind of thing, you may want to check out the rather good Tetris clone available for the Kindle too, which may be a good deal easier to control.

We're now hoping for a revamped Kindle with speakers and a proper D-Pad.
