So, the Nintendo 3DS finallygets messaging to people on your friends list this Thursday (welcome to the 21st century, Nintendo! Took you long enough). This week's eShop update, which also includes the cIassic GB Tetris that made the Gameboy such a rage, has the free app Swapnote (LetterBox in PAL regions) for download.

Swapnote is like the 3DS version of Pictochat, albeit much more evolved. It allows you to send messages to friends, doodles and scribbles, 2D and 3D art, videos, photos and sound effects. All transfers are either done over Wi-fi via SpotPass or locally via StreetPass instead.

So, everyone, remember: download SwapNote (LetterBox in PAL regions) as soon as it goes up this Thursday. This app is (as of now) the only way we will be able to send and receive messages on the 3DS, so it is important that you have it on your system!

To download it, check the eShop this Thursday. The eShop updates 12:00 PM PST for NA systems.

EDIT: The app also allows you to capture and send screenshots to friends!

Send me your Friend Code! I'll add you as well! Also, do you have Mario Kart?

So this is my cue to get as many SW people on my friends list as possible, so I can spam them with profanity.

In hindsight, this may have been a very bad idea.

This had to be in since launch.

A lot of things had to be in since launch, but they weren't. eShop, demos, DLC, video recording, internet browser, system transfer, media capabilities, DSiWare, integrated Friends List... It's only NOW that the system finally has all the features that were promised at launch.

Crap. I dunno what's wrong with it, it keeps giving me an error message and disconnecting me from the Community.

...? There's only one friend code per system now. It's no different than a username.

It looks like SW got hacked :P Maybe we should play on the Gamespot DS community.
#44 Posted by charizard1605 (55983 posts) -
No idea what's going on here. Maybe we should try tomorrow. Maybe the specific server that hosts our community is down or something.

I like how this turned into a Mario Kart thread. 3DS fanboys unite! :D

Edit: There are some people on the GS 3DS community if anyone wants to join up.
