Nintendo Letter Box SpotPass features suspended after online 'misuse'

Nintendo Letter Box on 3DS - or Swapnote in other regions - has seen its online SpotPass functionality suspended.

The firm revealed that it discovered some users, including minors, were exchanging friend codes on message boards then using the service to share "offensive material".

"Nintendo has been investigating ways of preventing this and determined it is best to stop the SpotPass feature of Swapnote because it allows direct exchange of photos and was actively misused," read a statement.

"Nintendo always wants to provide a positive experience for all consumers and limit the risk of any inappropriate activity or misuse of a service. We feel it is important on this occasion to take this action."
