Have you downloaded Nintendo Letter Box on your Nintendo 3DS? It’s free to download from the eShop and it’s a great way to share messages, photos, and recordings through your 3DS and stay in contact with your friends and it costs absolutely nothing to use. It allows you to send and receive messages via StreetPass and SpotPass.
You can write a message or simply send a drawing to one of your friends. If you make a mistake, you can simply rub it out and every message can be saved. Not only is it a fun way to keep in communication with your friends, if you don’t see them online it’s pretty awesome to use. First up, you can write your messages in 2D or 3D and the message is recreated right in front of their eyes. I’ve been waiting for something like this to come along from Nintendo and this little software feature does everything you want it to do. You can share photos, you’ve captured through the 3DS camera and send it to your friends and you can even create a small voice recording if you wish.
Once you’ve played with the software for a little while with a little help from tutorial guide Nikki, you’ll unlock special stationary. Some of the stationary is free and before long you’ll see new stationary that is animated, as the first set of stationary is just static. While everything is free to intially begin with, some of the special sets of stationary will cost you Play Coins. Play Coins are what you accumulate when you’re moving around with your 3DS in your pocket. 100 steps unlocks 1 Play Coin.
The animated stationary costs 5 Play Coins, but there are a great selection to choose from. I personally sent out a few on New Years Eve. You can even write a message and then sent it out on a future date. The person will be able to receive it, but won’t be able to open it until that date, which is ideal for when you want to write a special birthday surprise message. When you receive a message from your friend, the special bit of software indicates you have a letter waiting for you.
So why don’t you try Nintendo Letter Box today.
