Transfer Your Old Flipnote Animations To Flipnote Studio 3D

By Ishaan . May 1, 2013 . 11:30am

As previously reported, Nintendo are developing a new Flipnote Studio animation app for the Nintendo 3DS, titled Flipnote Studio 3D. You can read up on details of the app here.


Flipnote Studio 3D is scheduled for release this Summer, but prior to that, the old Flipnote Studio community for Nintendo DSi on Hatena will go offline on May 31st. Before that happens Nintendo recommend claiming and transferring your animations to the new upcoming community.


You’ll be able to transfer your Flipnote Studio animations to Flipnote Studio 3D. You can read more about how to perform this transfer here on Nintendo’s Flipnote notice page.

    Sweeeet. Loved the Flipnote app on my DSi. Glad they’re developing one for the 3DS.

    Hmm, between all the game announcements, Miiverse and Flipnote, I think the 3DS is bound to become the go-to device that will take up most of one’s free time, haha.

  • So, out of pure curiosity, is there a reason they couldn’t have just updated the old community to accept the 3DS app’s submissions, or at least maintain the submissions for viewing? I know the 3DS changed the online structure, but this feels needlessly complicated.

    Come to think of it, *most* things Nintendo attempts with the internet feel needlessly complicated…

      They are probably completely redoing it with the extra power of the 3DS so the old framework wouldn’t work anymore, also 3D so it probably nicely with it.

    • The old service was hosted by Hatena. The word Hatena is suspiciously absent from any news on the new service.

    Still not over about needing to pay to watch Flipnotes…
