  • News Flipnote Studio Celebrates Mario's 25th Anniversary

    Get animated

    What better way to pay tribute to the moustachioed man himself than with a bit of hand-drawn animation? That seems to be the thinking at Nintendo, as it's recently launched a new festival for Flipnote Studio asking artists to create animations based on the plucky plumber. To help out, Nintendo's even offering two audio samples that...


  • News Yep, Flipnote Studio Is One Way To Make a Music Video

    Arman Bohn's hundreds of animations culminate into one big bang of talent

    A quick trip over to Flipnote Hatena is all it takes to see just how fantastic the free DSiWare animation tool Flipnote Studio can be when in talented hands.

    In a pretty smart marketing move on Nintendo's part, Oscar-winning animation house Aardman Animations is set to create twelve Flipnote Studio toons for the weeks leading up to Christmas. Tim Ruffle, one of Aardman's animators, will be the one behind the stylus. The first of these Flipnote shorts, "The Sandwich Twins," will premiere Wednesday,..


  • News Flipnote Petition Says "We Want Smash Bros. DS!"

    And not much more, to be honest...

    By now we've seen some of the amazing animations talented folk can come up with when left with a copy of Flipnote Studio (and possibly some alcohol), but that's not to say that everyone with the application is so interested in becoming the next Hayao Miyazaki. Flipnote user "Jacob" has started a one-page...
