Nintendo planning e-reader apps for Wii U, 3DS?

We could spend all day dreaming about what new gaming experiences the Wii U’s tablet controller could conjure up, but the system might not be limited to games.

Website Forget the Box has suggested that Nintendo has approached a software developer to bring books, magazines and comics over to the Wii U and in turn the 3DS via a e-reader app.

No details on who would handle the development but it sounds like, if true, readers would even be given access to Nintendo Power.

Another step towards making the company’s next more like an iPad, then?
