Assistance with drafting the specifications for migrating the Louvre Museum audio guide to Nintendo 3DS


In 2011, the Louvre Museum’s multimedia department needed help managing a project which involved the coordination and drafting of technical specifications used to designate the companies responsible for the next generation of multimedia tour guides for the museum.

Thanks to a partnership with Nintendo, we were able to develop and launch a tour guide on 3DS XL, based on years of experience with the conventional audio guide and on the Nintendo teams’ expertise in designing fun interfaces.

Still, the recovery and re-recording of the content in 12 languages, as well as the distribution of the devices on site, were assigned to a delegated company. The multimedia department thus asked Reciproque to draft the technical procurement specifications in full:

- Launch and maintenance of the terminal fleet
- Distribution of the terminals on site
- Provision, configuration of a publication system for multimedia content
- Production of additional content for the new multimedia guide.

Since 2013, Nintendo has distributed and sold the Louvre guide in the form of a Nintendo 3DS cartridge, which has been provided to millions of Louvre visitors since 2011.
