Star Man Swapnote is Here!



For those left out of the loop, Swapnote (or Nintendo Letterbox, as it's
called in Europe and Australia) is a messaging platform for 3DS systems.

Similar to the Wii, the messaging system works over the 3DS' linking with
an Internet connection (known as SpotPass) to receive and send
messages. These messages include handwritten letters, sound clips and
3D/2D photos. It's all very fun, and I've been playing around with it since
it came out.

GameBoy and I collaborated on the latest NFF video:

Could be copyright laws here in NA that prevented Nintendo to pick up the name Letterbox.

Other than that, I agree, the name change doesn't make any sense.

I've yet to download it, because I a) keep getting distracted by Mario Kart 7 and Minish Cap, and/or b) am too lazy to open up the eShop to download.

After having my 3DS lose battery life, as well as about two hours of Minish Cap game time, I'll go back into the eShop and download Swapnote and lament my lost time.

I'll probably download it and barely use it. I never take my 3DS out with me so I wouldn't pass by anyone. I mean why would I, I go out to get away from games.

I am still waiting for a 3DS Pictochat to be used over Wi-Fi.
