Swapnote Sequel Swapdoodle Available Now On The 3DS eShop

Nikki is coming back to help you draw silly doodles to send to your friends. This adorable messaging app is free-to-start, with lessons to draw Nintendo characters starting at $2.99.

Swapdoodle will let you send hand drawn doodles to people on your friends list through Spotpass. Writing more notes unlocked additional backgrounds in Swapnote, though it's uncertain if that will return here.

Nintendo used Swapnote for a variety of promotions in the past, with Miis of Reggie Fils-Aimé, Eiji Aonuma, and Shigeru Miyamoto visiting to deliver messages like they do in Streetpass Plaza. The service was shut down in 2013 as some users circulated explicit content with the software.

You can check out a trailer for Swapdoodle below.


Our Take
It's awesome to see the return of Nintendo's adorable messaging app. The drawing lessons should be great for anyone who wants to learn, though hopefully this service won't be shut down for the same reasons as last time.
