Nintendo Launches Pokémon Art Academy

You know, I’ve never tried one of the Art Academy series of games from Nintendo, though they do look pretty interesting. This fall, Pokémon Art Academy will be released on the Nintendo 3DS. Ever wanted to draw your favourite Pokémon character?

Starting October 24th, aspiring artists can hone their skills through a series of easy-to-follow lessons under the tutelage of esteemed Professor Andy in this new 2D art-instruction game for the Nintendo 3DS.

Drawing their way toward graduation – from the art basics of simple shapes and coloring, to exciting advanced techniques of shading and blending – players will wield a variety of tools, including markers, colored pencils, pastels and paints to illustrate popular Pokémon from all known regions. As they advance, players can unlock special lessons featuring Mega-Evolved Pokémon.

On the road to becoming Pokémon artists, players can showcase their 2D artwork in Miiverse galleries or save their creations to SD cards and print their limited-edition artwork to share with friends and family.

The original Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone game was released back in 2012. Pokémon Art Academy will be released on October 24th in stores and in the Nintendo eShop.
