So are they actually not releasing flip note 3d studio? As I heard differently.
They have basically killed off the free sharing-among-friends service in Japan due to "abuse". You can still use the global option, but you have to pay. Given the current controversy, I can't see them being in any rush to bring it over here....

Sorry Phlips! It sounds like it's attached photos etc. that are the real concern. I can understand Nintendo's worry - they are he automatic reference for "BY CHILDREN" in the media, so if the tabloids say that "CHILDREN HAVE BEEN USING THEIR NINTENDOS TO SEND AND RECEIVE FILTH FROM PAEDOS" they'll never hear the end of it. But, as usual, this is the parents' fault for not guiding them on what they should/shouldn't be doing on the internet.

On October 31, Nintendo suddenly announced it was ending its SwapNote service for the 3DS. Nintendo said SwapNote had been "actively misused" to transmit "offensive material" among system users, including minors. Now we know how offensive and unsettling some of that material was.
Japanese newspaper Mainichi reports that charges for child pornography have also been filed against another man, aged 44, who had allegedly two girls—then aged 11 to 12—send nude photos through SwapNote, or "Itsu no Ma ni Koukan Nikki" (いつの間に交換日記) as it's called in Japan. This man, a resident of Aichi Prefecture, has allegedly confessed to the acts.
I'm normally not one for laughing at the Japanese accent but it really sounded like he was calling it Football Crap. So for 3DS news, it basically amounted to some games I'm not fused about, and Zelda and Bravely Default which I already knew I was getting. Then some great Mario stuff which blew all the the 3DS gubbins out of the water.

Wow. Nothing on Kirby 3D, YNI, Monster Hunter 4, Mario Golf World Tour... I thought this was going to be about next quarter's 3DS games? Is this Nintendo's way of saying there will be none? Because that's fine - my 3DS has been spoiled recently. But you didn't need a Direct to say that!
I guess a lot of people will be happy about 3DS Miiverse though. Meh.
