Nintendo DS: Nintendo Wants To Get DS Consoles Into Schools

Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed Nintendo’s ambitious plans to get the Nintendo DS into junior schools in Japan with the help of  educational software.

“That is maybe the area where I am devoting myself [the] most,” Japanese video game guru Shigeru Miyamoto told The Associated Press in an interview.

Speaking through a translator, Miyamoto said that Nintendo’s DS console was already being used in Japanese museums, galleries and aquariums, and that his company was beginning to roll out the Nintendo DS system “in junior high and elementary schools in Japan starting in the new school year.”

  1. Good idea! Then kids can get their DSi taken away because they were playing DSiWare during class! Using a DS in school would still be awesome, though.

  2. Teacher: “So class, what is the answer to this math probl-”
    Student: “YEAH, TAKE THAT BOWSER!”

  3. Garry’s Mod should be in schools. The teacher could tell the students to build a certain kind of contraption.

  4. Assembly at school: Principal giving stern talk to students. One student pulls out their DSi and starts playing MarioKart.
    Principal: “So as a result, this is unacceptible beha-”
    Student: “Yeah, kick ass! First place again!”
    Principal tells student to put away DSi and go to school office. Student says he doesn’t have to because School Board now allows Nintendo products in all schools. Principal looks like total jackass and student continues playing. The End! That would be too awesome!
