Nintendo's 3DS Louvre Guide Is Even Better With Iwata And Miyamoto

Nintendo's 3DS Louvre Guide Is Even Better With Iwata And Miyamoto

Nintendo has announced today the release of Nintendo 3DS Guide: Louvre for the 3DS eShop, and, to celebrate this, Satoru Iwata tried the app out with the ever-smiling Shigeru Miyamoto in Nintendo's latest Mini Direct, in a quite empty Louvre.

As the Mini Nintendo Direct shows below, you can basically use it as a real-time guide, with the 3DS screen displaying artwork, hundreds of photos of the museum interior and panoramic galleries with audio commentary. No mini-games unfortunately.

The app is out today in Europe and costs €19.99 / £17.99 to download.

    If Nintendo put out a powerful console that wasn't based on some new gimmick I cant imagine how it could fail.

    I would buy the hell out of it.

      Remember the N64 it was the most powerful console out of the three for it's generation (with the ps1 and Sega Saturn) it did not sell too well compared to the ps1.

      Then they made the gamecube it was the middle of the range compared to the PS2 and Xbox and again it did not sell to well.

      Then they tried again and made the Wii which was much less powerful than the Xbox 360 and the PS3 and it sold a hell of a lot of units, more than the gamecube and N64 combined and to date has sold more units than the Xbox 360 or the PS3.

      Can you really blame them, history has shown them that if they make a moderately weak console with an interesting control scheme people will buy it (look at the Wii) i don't know where they are going to go from here, they might try again to be the best on the block or they may try and take the middle ground and fit in between PS5 and Next box or they might stay where they are and bring out a console that has similar power to the Xbox one and PS4.

      To me it does not really matter, i love there games and will keep on supporting them as long as they continue to make them.

        Well as of now history is showing them that people need more than a gimmick. The Wii U is a flop and Nintendo has as good IP as ever.

        The only thing that puts me off all their games is the control scheme and to a lesser extent the graphics.

        Its not that the graphics are bad so much as the fact that it costs over 400 bucks and the graphics are bad.

          It's to early to call it a flop, in just over one year it has sold nearly 4 million units and if its lifetime sold numbers are higher than the N64 or the Gamecube then they have done pretty well (if you are comparing it to what the wii, ps3, xbox 360, xbox one or ps4 will sell or have sold then yeah its a flop compared to them, but that is beside the point)

          Cannot say i have had that experiance, controls always seemed fine to me and i don't really mind the graphics, hell i still play NES games.

          I can agree with you on the cost of the console, it is far to high and needs to come down now that the PS4 and Xbox one are out, but i don't think they will do it just yet now that Mario Land 3D has just come out, but i am sure they are considering a price drop for sometime early next year.

          Once the Xbox One and PS4 start developing there library's of games the price of the Wii U will come down quick smart or they wont be able to sell many units.

            I will buy it if it hits 249 or less. Hopefully not too far away :D

    I have been lucky enough to 'stroll' (more like push, punch and kick through) the Louvre twice now. But to be granted access with NO ONE there...guess I have to somehow wrangle running Nintendo.
