    The world that never was
    Your dream is coming true, all Flipnote fans and artists around the globe! Flipnote Studio 3D is a highly anticipated app from a lot of fans of the original DSi one, Flipnote Memo for the DSi (which will cease function on may 31st). What's new in this, you ask? Well, now you can draw pictures in 3 layers, 6 colors and import them as GIF or AVI files. There will be a Friend Flipnote Gallery community service which you comment, evaluate, and download each others' drawings. The whole app is free, as well, except for the World Flipnote Gallery global community service as it requires a small monthly fee for a server (or something), but there's 30-day trial and free specified hours. You will be able to start your artistic journey this year in summer!​
    Are you excited for this? Discuss!​

    UPDATE:
    A new sample video:


    NA/EU announcement: (Releases summer, as well)


    Another small update: (mainly a clarification)
    The application will boast its own online community services. Flipnote Gallery: Friends will be set up for animators to freely share Flipnotes amongst friends, while the introduction of a paid community service, Flipnote Gallery: World, will enable Flipnote users from across the globe to interact with each other’s works for a small monthly fee. A free trial for the first 30 days of use will be offered for this service, while Flipnote users who create Flipnotes that are highly rated by other users may receive their next month’s subscription for free.

    Liking this news, except for the fact that I don't have a 3DS yet and they're shutting down the DSi version. D:

    I was honestly thinking they'd given up on giving the 3DS a flipnote app. So glad to see this is still happening, and the features and improvements are actually more than I expected from Nintendo. Color me impressed. I'm very excited for this to come out.

    Well, at this point, what are you waiting for? Flipnote was the last thing the DSi had that the 3DS still lacked, not much of a point to clinging to your past gen handheld at this point now. (unless the slight decrease in resolution of DS games is an issue for you. Personally it doesn't bother me at all, just yesterday I played Pokemon Conquest on my 3DS for a solid 3 hours or so)

    FINALLY!

    I must say, once this is out, I can't see myself doing anything else on my 3DS for quite some time!

    (Also, does anyone know what "free specified hours" means?)

    My guess is that it means if you don't pay the monthly fee, you'll still be able to access World Flipnote Gallery global community service for free at specified hours. Maybe for example something like weeknights from 5-9 ET or something like that.

    I'm fairly sure you can access the global community for free. You just can't host your flipnotes on it for free except during specified hours. "real JP" source

    Well regardless of the case, I question why anyone would want to pay the monthly fee, unless the free specified hours aren't very often and/or random.

    for one the fee is probably small, two the site will be ad free so this small fee will be to support hosting costs, and three people will probably pay that fee for other "extra" features like the fee color stars on the old flipnote heneta

    Well, I don't have the funds to upgrade myself to the 3DS XL at the moment, and I have a Vita to keep me occupied. Maybe when Pokémon X/Y comes out.
    (also, it's not a decrease in resolution, it's a slight increase with a bilinear filter. I'd rather have larger pixels)

    blah, you know what I mean, DS games just look a little less crisp on the 3DS, that's all.

    I can not wait for X and Y.
