Flipnote Studio 3D

Important information about the discontinuation of Club Nintendo

Nintendo’s first loyalty programmes, VIP 24:7 and Club Member, started in May 2002, and were combined in December 2007 to become Club Nintendo.

We’re working hard to create a new programme, which we plan to launch later this year. And as a special offer, users who sign up to the new programme during the launch period will be able to download Flipnote Studio 3D to a Nintendo 3DS system for free. Please stay tuned to the Nintendo website for further details.

This new membership programme will replace Club Nintendo, so we will discontinue Club Nintendo according to the schedule published in the news section. Thank you for all your support.

Flipnote Studio 3D Features


Bring your images to life!

Your canvas is divided into three layers which lets you draw different images and overlay them. By using one layer for the background and then overlaying people or other images, you can bring a striking sense of depth to your creations.


Adjust the depth of the 3D image by simply sliding your stylus on the Touch Screen.


Use six colourful pens to create Flipnotes that are all your own!

In addition to the black, white, red and blue colours you could use in the original Flipnote Studio, you can now paint in yellow and green, giving you a broader palette to fully express yourself.

Please check Nintendo eShop, Nintendo DSi Shop or Wii Shop Channel to get the latest pricing information for downloadable titles.
