Flipnote Hatena Weekly News: July 2, 2010


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.

This week we’ve released some new Creator’s Room themes in the Color Star Exchange that you can use by exchanging only 5 color stars.

If you exchange color stars for a theme in the Color Star Exchange by July 11 (Sunday) you’ll also be able to try your luck to get an extra limited edition theme or some other prizes. Please access the URL below for more information about the Rainbow Summer Campaign:

If you happen to be in Paris, France this week visiting the Japan Expo please keep a look out for the members of the French Flipnote Hatena user group, the Hatena Ultimate French Team (HUFT) who will be having a get together at the Japan Expo on July 4 (Sunday). Next week we plan to publish some photos of the HUFT meeting at the Japan Expo here in the Flipnote Hatena Weekly News.


Now that July is here it has been getting hotter in many places in the world, and the new weekly topic is all about keeping cool. Please scroll down to the bottom of the news, or tap on channel 7 on Flipnote Hatena for Nintendo DSi for more information.
