Note this is at least so in NA, I would assume EU is the same, double check anyway just to be safe.

Update: Starwolf_UK says the following regarding EU:

Well technically...there isn't a code in Europe but one of those automatically added to your account once you sign into the id.nintendo.net with your NNID (which the free download button takes you to)...which means you need an NNID linked on your 3DS (which I don't, due to it locking country switching) otherwise, you get nothing but:

Error Code 902-3156

You have not finished setting up your account.
Please make sure you have access to a console or system that is compatible with the products that can be purchased or redeemed here, then link this Nintendo Network ID to that console or system and launch Nintendo eShop on it.

Got it back in Club Nintendo.

They're probably making it limited solely to drive up MyNintendo sign ups.

This app had Russian localisation on day 1, but the patch which released the next day (to remove Flipnote Gallery) removed the translation. One of the most WTF situations by Nintendo.

Thanks for the headsup! I logged in with my nintendo id and then made a "my nintendo" account, but I don't see the option to claim flipnote anywhere. Am I too late or is it in a menu somewhere?

EDIT: Nvm, found it!

Don't remember downloading it, but it says no code necessary as I've already downloaded. Don't even see it on the eShop.
You won't see it on the eShop as it has no page on there due to only being available through promotions. Go to the my owned products section which is is one of things in the leftmost option when on the 3DS eShop (at least in the EU layout, I'm hoping at least that part of the US layout is the same).

Oh, I see. Thanks, added your post to the OP. :)

I liked original Flipnote because it had online sharing. Are they adding online to this one in the future?

I already had it since the final month of Club Nintendo, but it's odd how secretive they were about this returning in My Nintendo.

Thanks for getting the word out to others.

It looks like it's available for a little over an hour longer. I just redeemed mine, and it says it is available to redeem until 3 am CDT.

Thanks for the reminder :)
Downloaded and made my first flipnote clip, with the art skill level of a 4 years old, but still funny lol.
Is it possible to upload it somehow, so you can show your creations to other people?

Sadly only the Japanese version had its own online flipnote sharing feature. I think they removed it in other versions because of being in fear of that Swapnote incident which made Flipnote 3D go MIA for a couple years overseas.
