Iwata teases Nintendo Letter Box expansion
Nintendo are currently facilitating plans to ensure the continued popularity of Nintendo Letter Box, Satoru Iwata recently confirmed.
Asked as to whether Nintendo could quantify the success of the Nintendo 3DS communication software, titled Swapnote in North America, Iwata responded “The only quantitative thing I can tell you is that more than 10 million handwritten notes have been exchanged in the four weeks after the launch of the service.
“So I can say that users are using this software actively to some extent. And, I believe that the number of handwritten notes to be exchanged will increase at an accelerated pace if we can have users continue to enjoy the software for a long time.”
Nintendo are also keen to nurture and encourage those currently using Nintendo Letter Box, as well as ensuring that its popularity continues to expand in future.
“In fact, we have some plans to encourage more people to use it, and you will find out what I am talking about when we reveal such plans in the future”, Iwata teased. “Therefore, we believe this software will gain more popularity going forward.
“From a qualitative standpoint, Swapnote is very popular among women. Watching the people around our employees and myself, I have the impression that a lot of women of all ages enjoy using it. Therefore, this software works really well to have women feel familiar with the Nintendo 3DS”.
