[[caption-width-right:350:Meet Nikki: Your helpful resident Mii of SwapNote]]

Swapnote, or ''Itsuno ma ni Koukan Nikki'' in Japan (''Nintendo Letterbox'' in the EU, ''Nintendo Mailbox'' in some other areas) was a free messaging app on the Nintendo3DS released in late December of 2011. Unlike other messaging apps that let you give small blurbs of text, you essentially send scribbled notepad messages which are "redrawn" to the recipients, and even have the ability to draw [[UsefulNotes/ThreeDMovie in 3D]] along with attaching 3D pictures or sound bites. These messages can be sent to friends online via [=SpotPass=] or [[SocializationBonus person-to-person]] [=StreetPass=].

Perhaps most interesting of all is the popularity it has garnered not just from its messaging functions but from Swapnote's [[ExpositionFairy guide]] in the form of a Mii called Nikki (in the bottom left side of the pic to the right). Already various [[FanArt fanart]] of [[{{Meganekko}} her]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse have]] [[RuleThirtyFour popped-up]] since the app debuted. At New Year's Day at 2012, Nintendo themselves sent out a new stationery (that can be acquired by simply having a friend send a message with the new stationary to you), along with a QR Code of Nikki's own official Mii usable in Mii Maker.

Despite the end of ''Swapnote'', Nikki is still around: she's become the mascot for the news page of Nintendo's Japanese website, and starred in ''Nikki's Travel Quiz'', a trivia game about Japan that was exclusive to the Japanese Club Nintendo. She's also made appearances in other Nintendo software, having hosted a [=SpotPass=] art lesson in ''Art Academy'', been a Mystery Mushroom costume in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'', and received a set of badges to decorate 3DS home screens with in the ''Nintendo Badge Arcade''. Plus one of the backer-designed enemies in ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}: Half-Genie Hero'' is a Nikki homage called Ikki.

To protect minors, Nintendo discontinued the application's [=SpotPass=] features on November 1, 2013, due to users sending each other offensive material. Despite this, Nikki continues to make occasional cameos in other Nintendo software, such as a Mystery Mushroom costume in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker''.

Nintendo discontinued the service on November 1, 2013; because minors had been abusing the system by exchanging friend codes online and sending each other offensive material.
