Flipnote Studio 3D To Be Delayed in Japan

One of the largest issues plaguing Nintendo over the last couple of years, to include software releases for both the 3DS and the Wii U, has been the consistent delays pushing anticipated software back months at a time.

Nintendo are continuing the trend by announcing today that Flipnote Studio 3D is being slightly delayed.  The release date has been pushed back for Japanese customers 21 days from July 3rd to July 24th.

The notice is in Japanese, and translates roughly to:

Flipnote 3D Notice of Postponement

Thank you for your continued patronage of our products.  This is to inform you that the community service \”Flipnote Studio 3D\”, which had been scheduled for delivery on July 3, 2013, has been delayed to July 24, 2013.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused to customers waiting for delivery,  and we apologize sincerely as well as thank you and ask for your continued understanding.

Still no word on release dates for other regions eagerly awaiting the release of this software, but it is possible they are being internally delayed as well.  It is still expected to drop this summer.

How eager are you to start writing 3D notes?  Let us know in the comments.
