Nintendo recently unveiled a new Pokemon game for the 3Ds and is slated for release on June 19th in Japan. Titled “Pokemon Art Academy”, this game will focus on teaching players how to draw various Pokemon as they sketch their way through increasingly difficult designs using the 3DS stylus.
This game is a spin-off from another series called “Art Academy” with a similar, though not so specific focus on learning to draw different designs.
Pokemon Art Academy will have 40 lessons, often focusing on different aspects of art. For example, there will be lessons that teach such skills as lighting and 3D effects alongside the tutorials of the Pokemon art.
In addition, players will be able to save their art to SD cards or upload it to the Miiverse to share with online. Confirmed Pokemon include Charizard, Pikachu, and Fletchling, and many others.
The game does not yet have a release date for any region outside of Japan, though many Pokemon spin-off games do end up getting released internationally, such as Pokemon: Conquest and Pokemon: Trozei, so artists can maintain hope to see the title being brought over eventually.
