Nintendo Letterbox Coming to 3DS December 22
New update lets friends keep in touch. Just don't call it PictoChat 2.0.
One of the biggest disappointments with 3DS was the absence of PictoChat, the wireless messaging software installed on every DS system. Did we use it more than 20 times over the course of seven years? Of course not, but you miss the point. We just liked knowing it was there.
Thankfully, Nintendo may have a solution in the form of Letterbox. Releasing this Thursday (at least in Europe), this free download lets friends communicate using both StreetPass and SpotPass.
They can send messages, 2D and 3D drawings and pictures. In other words, you'll probably see many inappropriate things, depending on who your friends are.
Personally, we can't wait.
