Flipnote Gallery World is Nintendo's (Japan-exclusive, except DSi Gallery) animation sharing service for Flipnote Studio 3D on the Nintendo 3DS.

It hosts user-created flipbook-style animations (known as Flipnotes) in a proprietary KWZ format, which is partially documented at [1].

Of particular interest is the DSi Gallery section, which contains almost all Flipnotes ever uploaded to Flipnote Hatena - its worldwide predecessor for the Nintendo DSi - in aforementioned KWZ format (unfortunately not compatible with Flipnote Studio for Nintendo DSi), except for those Flipnotes whose creators opted out of inclusion into the DSi Gallery. (The Flipnote Hatena servers have since been shut down, although successfully reverse engineered prior.)

Flipnote Gallery World has been reverse engineered by Kaeru Team / Flipnote Collective.
