I reached out to Nintendo of America last week regarding a possible release date for the upcoming animation app and received a reply from them just yesterday. Although the app was originally scheduled for an early August release, Nintendo cited problems with servers being overloaded in Japan and thus delayed the release of the application in both Europe and North America.
The good news, at least, is that it’s still coming out before the end of the summer. Here’s what a representative for Nintendo had to say about it:
I’m happy to report that Flipnote Studio 3D for the Nintendo 3DS will be available as a free download via the Nintendo eShop sometime this summer! While we know that it is coming soon, we unfortunately do not have an official release date just yet. To learn more about this upcoming application, as well as the new Flipnote Studio 3D service, please check out the official website:
So, while the delay is a bit of a bummer, it’s at least nice to know that it will be coming out within the next 3-4 weeks (Summer officially ends on September 21st in North America).
Well, with 3DS View’s blog section closed down it looks like this incarnation of 2DS View is moving on, riding off into the sunset much like the DS itself. 2DS View will live on after this in a new format on my personal site at espiox.net (or just follow me on Twitter to find out when it goes live) likely with a focus on editorial content rather than news. It’s been fun writing these over the past few months; if anyone’s actually been reading along, thank you! Here’s one more for the road.
Wow, that month went fast. Hope you all had a great Christmas and/or New Year!
I’ll be completely honest: I did not expect this feature to run into 2012. Right up until that last post, I figured news would dry up after Christmas and I’d need to make some drastic changes to keep 2DS View going. Then they announced Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition.
The 10 Game Boy Advance games are now available to 3DS early adopters in North America, Europe, Japan and Australia. The process is the same as the NES games (Settings -> Titles You’ve Downloaded -> Redownload each game), but the new Sleep Mode Download feature means you can just queue them all up at once.
