Quoting an unnamed software developer who has been working with Nintendo, Forgetthebox.net was told of a complete eBook download service, featuring not only books, but comics, magazines and newspapers too.
One of the Wii U’s unique features is its 6.2-inch touchscreen controller, and it’s here that the eBooks would be read, using the standard page turning swipes to browse through them. Nintendo will also make the publications available on the 3DS handheld console, emulating Apple, Amazon and Google’s approach to adding benefits to those who show brand loyalty.
