Start to stockpile your creative juices as Nintendo has released first details on the new features of animation software Flipnote Studio 3D for Nintendo 3DS. To be released this summer as a free download on Nintendo eShop, Flipnote Studio 3D will give you the chance to devise 3D animated masterpieces with the simple aid of your Nintendo 3DS system.
Flipnote Studio 3D follows up from Flipnote Studio on Nintendo DSi, furthering the concept of turning your Nintendo handheld console into an animation studio using your stylus to contrive simple or elaborate sketches, called Flipnotes. For those inspired by old-fashioned flip-pads which create the illusion of movement when flicked through, Flipnote Studio 3D is the virtual equivalent, but with the added benefit of stereoscopic 3D layering, and, as with the original Flipnote Studio, the ability to include audio and share your creations with the world.
The key aspect of the application is the ability to create Flipnotes in 3D by arranging three different layers, before adjusting the 3D depth to your desired level. To help illustrate your artistic master work and bring it to life, an increased number of colours will also be at your fingertips.
The release of Flipnote Studio 3D is expected for summer 2013, and will be free for all Nintendo 3DS gamers. For Flipnote Studio users on Nintendo DSi, the current “Flipnote Hatena” services for Nintendo DSi and PC will end on 31st May 2013. Flipnote Studio users on Nintendo DSi will still be able to use the application to create Flipnotes, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Flipnote software.
