Nintendo makes it easier to post your Animal Crossing: New Leaf photos on Tumblr, Twitter
Nintendo has created a new site that will let you post in-game screenshots taken in Animal Crossing: New Leaf (and in Tomadachi Collection: New Life) directly from your 3DS to Tumblr or Twitter.
All you need to do is load up i.nintendo.net in your 3DS’s built-in browser, login to the appropriate service, pick your photo, add a message, and post. Yeah, it’s not as convenient as an in-game tool, but it’s another sign that Nintendo is embracing Tumblr.
I do everything Pokémon’s Twitter account tells me to
Seeing as there’s hardly any interesting posts I could find today, I thought I’d throw this down because:
- the promise of news is somewhat better than no news
- it’s a chance to get excited about a Pokémon Snap revival, even though that probably isn’t the surprise
- I get to remind you we have a Twitter account, which you should follow because we are tweeting gold (e.g. Naruto butts, Waluigi digs)
I don’t know if it’s a good idea to promote the annoying of friends via Twitter, but… Chunsoft has a cute little Flash app on its Zombie Daisuki site to turn your Twitter (or mixi) ID into a zombie. You can then turn up to three of your friends into zombies every day.
And then… I don’t know. Your little zombie wanders around on the page. There’s going to be some kind of commemorative picture if the total number of zombies reaches 10,000, and that would be kind of neat to be part of. At the very least, you get to enjoy the cute Zombie Daisuki characters.
Nicalis’ teases the release date for a certain DSiWare game — most likely Cave Story! Oh, how they all laughed when you bought a Nintendo DSi to play downloadable games. Who’s laughing now? Hahahahaha.
Oh wait, I have an imported system, so I can’t download it. At least I have Tangrams With Cats In Them. :o(
Flipnote Studio frogs pose on a DSi, photographed by Hatena’s Aaron Berman (click for a large version).
Did you know Hatena has several online services, not just Flipnote Hatena? In addition to its Youtube-like site for posting Flipnote Studio animations, the Japanese company also has Haiku, Diary, Bookmark, and Fotolife — which are pretty much their equivalents of Twitter, Blogger, Delicious, and Flickr, respectively.
When I last checked, most of those were only available in Japanese, but it looks like Hatena Haiku is now open to English users. Unfortunately, it seems as if the only people who’ve noticed this and taken advantage of the site are Flipnote’s adolescent users.
Something else you likely didn’t know: the Flipnote Hatena team has a Twitter account! You should follow them, not only to keep track of their weekly newsletters, but also because it’s sad that such a great and innovative site has only a hundred or so followers. You should add us on Twitter, too, if you haven’t yet.
Oh, and here’s a great music video someone posted after animating the entire production in Flipnote.
Mega Man 10 Twitter icons. Capcom put these icons (and more) and some backgrounds on its site as Valentine’s Day presents. If you want adorable animated V-day icons on your Twitter account, go now! The offer only stands until February 26.
No Sheep Man, unfortunately.

— Hudson soliciting Bomberman ideas on Twitter.
I’m sure the first Bomberman DSiWare game will lack a lot of features, perhaps even online support, just like the series’ DS debut in 2006. I hope this release brings back the kangaroos/dinosaurs. Not bloody likely, though!
In related news, Hudson announced a new DSiWare title for Japan, Himitsu no Ooku, a female-targeted dating sim with 10 different guys to pursue, due August for 800 Points.
“Gentlemanly Discussion” by Jesse Harjunen.
My mind has been on Professor Layton a lot lately due to two current Twitter debates about the Englishman:
- Is the Professor’s Twitter feed officially sanctioned by Nintendo of America? If so, what’s the deal with the “Grand Smash Brothers Tournament” jokes?
- Is Mr. Layton the top or the bottom in his pederastic relationship with Luke?
While I’m still not certain on the first question, I believe the answer to the latter query is obvious.

“Pacman” by Scott Hampson.
In case you forgot, we have a Twitter feed of our own! I promise that it is only half as sad and uninteresting as most other Twitter feeds. And by half, I mean two times.

I knew that bringing Tiny Cartridge to Twitter would only lead to disappointment and heartbreak, not the immortal fame and unfathomable riches JC promised when he pitched this social networking opportunity to me.
I’ll probably announce the winners of our recent Atlus giveaway via Twitter (revealing them on the site at a later date), so make sure to follow us. Apparently, it’s the spot to totally burn us online for everyone in the world to see.
