3DS guides to replace audio guides at the Louvre next year

LHOOQ
The AFP reports that France's famous Louvre museum will begin replacing its traditional audio guides with 3DS consoles in March of 2012. Nintendo will give the museum 5,000 of its handhelds, which will run special software developed by the company.

The software will allow visitors to locate their position in the (very, very large) museum, as well as offering itineraries and, of course, traditional audio commentaries. The museum told the AFP that the move was made in order to better accommodate today's museum goers, who are more accustomed to interacting with touch screens.

Frankly, we're just hoping we can finally nab Leonardo da Vinci for our Mii Plaza.
