Nikki is back, and there was much rejoicing.

Three years after Swapnote's online sharing was disabled, Nintendo is returning to friends-based messaging on the 3DS.

Swapdoodle will launch today with the eShop update in both North America and Europe. In addition to basic messaging among 3DS friends, the game allows for doodles based on Nintendo characters and has stickers of Mii faces, among others. Private messaging functions are also available.

The application will be free with in-game purchase options.

This is actually really exciting. A group of us from the forums used SwapNote on a daily basis to just chat about games and life. It was fun and we were all sad when it was shut down. This is awesome news!

Im very surprised to see this. I never really used Swapnote, so I doubt I would use this either

Why couldn't you just use this forum for that? :(

Because I have severe social anxiety issues that extend to the internet and SwapNote/Swapdoodle conversations are closed and only involve a few familiar people.

Nikki is back! HOORAY!!!

I used to love swapnote, as I would illustrate stories so I could share them. Some were real life, others were jokes. I'm not sure if anyone remembers, but it was good fun while it lasted.

I do. A couple months ago, I was wondering if I should bother keeping the Swapnote app still on my 3DS so I booted it up and was looking through some of the old notes including ones you sent. After that brief review, I decided to let it stay on there. It's a neat little time capsule of gaming before Miiverse and the 3DS experience which has morphed a lot since it was first released.

Will download this later today! Maybe we can all be Swapdoodle buddies, everyone! :D

I think I still have some of those, too.

I still have 'em, BnM. Loved those. I think I even tried to emulate/send out a few of my own.
