Introducing Flipnote Studio 3D


Flipnote Studio™ 3D is coming to the Nintendo 3DS™ system! Along with a brand new animation creation application in Flipnote Studio 3D, two communities will be launched where you can share your flipnote creations. Flipnote Gallery: Friends makes it easy for you to open a gallery and share with your Nintendo 3DS friends. In Flipnote Gallery: World, you can share your flipnotes with users from all over the world. Both communities will launch at the same time as the Flipnote Studio 3D software.

Free pass for Flipnote Gallery: World


You can collect points through activities in Flipnote Gallery: World. After collecting a certain number of points, you will receive a pass, good for the next 30 days. There are two types of points – Coin Points and Collectors’ Points. Coin Points can be collected when you post flipnotes. Collector’s Points can be earned by introducing flipnotes that gain popularity within the community. Additional details will be provided closer to launch.

  • Collect Coin Points as a Flipnote Creator:
  • Earn good ratings by posting quality flipnotes. You will receive Coin Points based on how well your flipnotes are rated by the community. After earning a certain number of Coin Points, you will receive a pass to participate over the next 30 days for no additional charge. Additional details will be provided closer to launch.

  • Collect Collector Points as a Flipnote Collector:
  • There are other ways to earn points besides creating flipnotes. You can participate in the community as a collector. A collector finds and rates quality flipnotes and creates a collection. Your collection will be shared with other users. When a lot of visitors view your collection, you'll earn Collector’s Points. If you earn a lot of Collector’s Points and get a high Collector’s Ranking, you may be awarded a pass to participate over the next 30 days at no additional charge. Additional details will be provided closer to launch.

    So, you can participate in the Flipnote Gallery: World not only as a creator, but also as a collector who finds unique flipnotes and introduces them to others.
