Swapnote Messaging App Coming To Nintendo 3DS In December

Come December, you’ll be able to send messages your other 3DS-owning friends via a new app. Nintendo are calling this Swapnote, which sounds a little reminiscent of Flipnote Studio (right) on Nintendo DSiWare.


Swapnote will let you send 3D messages over both StreetPass and online. You’ll be able to hand-write messages, and also include pictures and recorded sounds. When it launches, Swapnote will be a free app. In the U.K., it will be called Nintendo Letter Box.


Something to note: Since Swapnote is a separate app, don’t expect to be able to fire it up in the middle of another game to message your buddies. That capability still doesn’t exist within the 3DS.
