Flipnote Hatena Weekly News: June 18, 2010

Hello Flipnote Users!

Here is what Aaron said on the weekly news blog:


Hello from all of us on the Flipnote Hatena team. This is Aaron at Hatena’s offices in Kyoto, Japan with another edition of our weekly news blog.

There were many new announcements this past week at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles, including the new Nintendo 3DS system, and we’re very excited about these new technologies.

As technology for gaming becomes more complex, one thing to remember is that all video games are created by programmers and artists who are real people just like you. All new ideas start with a blank piece of paper, and come to life based on one’s own effort and inspiration.

We think that Flipnotes are similar, and the sky is the limit for what you can create – all you need is a good idea and the perseverance to make that idea become something real. We hope you enjoy the Flipnotes that we have chosen to feature in the news this week, and that they can inspire you to create more great Flipnotes of your own to share with the world.

This week we plan to release the Flipnote Hatena Weekly News on the Nintendo DSi in 4 additional languages (French, German, Italian, Spanish), and hope to offer more multilingual content from now on for our users in all regions. Unfortunately, due to time constraints this week we may not be able to release the news on Friday for all languages, but promise to have everything live by Monday. Please bear with us as we get things ready, and thank you for your understanding.
