Swapnote Adds Color
But it’s still not quite right. Nintendo pushed out an update for their 3DS messaging service Swapnote today with no fanfare at all. It wasn’t until I went to the eShop to download my demo of Heroes of Ruin that I even knew the update was available. The update adds the use of colored ink for your messages by pressing left or right on the d-pad. There are six colors available but like most things with Nintendo it’s a step in the right direction but still not quite right. You can’t actually use multiple colors on a single message. All of the ink will change color as you cycle through.
I would love to be able to do things like play a Swapnote version of Draw Something on the 3DS, but without being able to use different colors it’s still not quite right.
