Today, somewhat out of the blue, Nintendo released Swapdoodle in North America and Europe, a spiritual successor to the long lost Swapnote / Nintendo Letter Box. As the name suggests it allows you to swap messages in doodle form with friends, even doing so online provided you've registered the relevant chums.

As you can see in the video below, it's packed full of lessons, ink colours and stationery.

Nintendo of Europe opted to post a handy breakdown of all the DLC options, which gives a good idea of what you get included in the free download and what the paid extras have to offer. The details are below:
