    Randomly, and without warning, Nintendo has quietly released Swapdoodle onto the e-Shop. The app is a successor to the now-defunct SwapNote/Letter Box, and contains in-app purchases, though the initial download itself is free. Tutorials, stationary sets, pen colors, and lessons all will cost money via microtransactions. Swapdoodle will let you send messages and drawings to other 3DS users, and will offer one lesson for free each week for players to try.

    I just want to clarify: did anyone even remotely ask for this? I mean, did anyone even use the original Swapnote?

    The whole point for me of the swapnote/letter box was the streetpass ... was really funny to have random draws, letters or photos from strangers in the sub or the streets x)
    like i said, was really funny with the streetpass function ! Had fun with it !

    Well look the ONLY possible way to communicate with others online on a nintendo 3ds. Why not just make a message system similar to Wii u Miiverse Private message? Or better yet, have VOICE CHAT? You have video chat on wii u, what the heck is the problem? :blink:
