Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

Nintendo Shuts Down 3DS SpotPass As Users "Exchange Offensive Material"

Posted on Friday, November 1 @ 06:54:50 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

In an effort to halt the spread of offensive content, Nintendo has shut down its SpotPass features for Swapnote. According to the company, users were "exchanging their friend codes on Internet bulletin boards" and then taking to Swapnote in order to "exchange offensive material." 

The Big N announced its decision to close down the service on its website, providing the following statement as an explanation: 

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.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience to the many consumers who have been using this service responsibly; however this decision was made considering the point that many minors also use this feature of Swapnote.

What do you think? Is Nintendo being too protective? Let us know in the comments below.
