The Louvre Museum in Paris will soon be replacing its audio guides with the popular Nintendo 3DS hand-held game system.
Nintendo will provide the museum with up to 5,000 devices, according to a report from the AFP.
The modified devices will allow visitors to track their progress throughout the museum, choose from a few different themed itineraries, and listen to tours in several different languages.
The partnership with Nintendo is just one campaign to modernize the institution. The 200-year-old museum recently updated its website (one of the most visited in the world), and will launch revamped applications for iPads and smartphones early in 2012.
