Rumor: Digital e-reader service coming to Wii U, 3DS
Forget The Box is claiming that a digital e-reader service will be released for Wii U. The site’s source supposedly comes from a software developer approached by Nintendo .
Basically, the application would allow users to download books, magazines, newspapers, comics, and other content. This would include every issue of Nintendo Power, instruction books, and maybe even players guides.
All of this digital content will be accessed through the Wii U’s controller. Each download would include a searchable index and users will be able to flip through the pages on the controller’s touch screen.
Consumers who are subscribed to a particular magazine will receive the latest issue automatically. This can be accomplished even if the console has been turned off.
Apparently, the e-reader service won’t be released only for Wii U. Nintendo has plans to bring it to 3DS as well as they look to share services between the two systems much like the iPhone and iPad.
It’d be best to exercise some caution with this rumor for now. That being said, I personally wouldn’t object to a service like this!

San Jose Mercury News has a new interview up with Shigeru Miyamoto. Although it’s short, it’s filled with a bunch of interesting information.
Miyamoto discusses how Nintendo is constantly looking to appeal to both the hardcore and casual gamer for Zelda titles, using 3D without distracting players, how he hasn’t been able to find mobile title that he’s enjoyed, and more.
Head past the break for all of Miyamoto’s statements.
Alvion hiring for Wii U and 3DS development
Alvion has updated their website with a notice that the studio is looking to hire new staff and that they’ll be working with new platforms next year. It seems that Alvion will be experimenting with the Wii U as well as the 3DS in 2012.
Alvion is perhaps best known for their work on Malicious, which launched for the PlayStation 3 in Japan last year. The company has only published one game for a Nintendo platform. In 2009, Alvion released Poupée Girl for DS.

Fire Emblem 3DS getting paid downloadable content in March, DLC also coming to Wii U
The first 3DS game to make use of paid downloadable content will be Fire Emblem, according to Nikkei. The site states that Nintendo is looking toward March 2012 to begin paid DLC, which likely means that Fire Emblem will be released during the same month. Players will be able to use credit cards or prepaid cards to purchase new items.
As far as third-parties go, publishers will be able to incorporate paid downloadable content in Summer 2012.
Wii U will also be getting its own share of paid downloadable content, though further details were not provided.
We may hear more about Nintendo’s future DLC plans and Fire Emblem 3DS during the Nintendo Direct presentation later today.
