Let's hope that it gets localised. Don't see why it won't, though.

You know what I really hope we see from this? Some of those drawing competitions they've had in Japan where the winners get their art on real-life Pokémon cards. Probably won't happen, but it would be so awesome...

 

(100% getting this if it's released in Europe, of course.)

Considering I can't draw, this is going to be a very unusual game for me to cover

That game is fucking awesome BTW! The music alone is worth the price of purchase...

 

 

If you like games like Typing of the Dead, this game is a must buy! (It's also ROCK hard! No, seriously! This game will put manly hairs on your chest and give you nightmares of your countless failures :shakehead )

Holy shit, why does a typing adventure game have such good music?! Who the fuck composed this?!

 

I may have to try and find a cheap copy somewhere, that sounds awesome!

 

£16 new on Amazon, fuuuu I'm tempted!

This appears to be a much better application than Art Academy SketchPad. Is it also developed by Headstrong Games?

Are they still planning to update the Wii U software? :blank:

Is this a full retail game or a cheap eshop game?

Full retail at, in Japan anyway, 75% the cost of normal retail

Yep, it is.

I've been wondering about that myself recently. The update is supposed to come out this year, but that's all we know at the moment.

Yeah they are. There's a full retail Art Academy game coming out this year for Wii U (Art Academy Sketchpad was just the free paint mode ripped out of the full retail game as something that Nintendo could put out early in order to keep people happy while they waited for the full game).

Oh damn! This is getting localised? YES! GET IN!

I wish I could say that wasn't true. But it's totally true! About 90% of the pictures I drew were Pokemon.

The thing that has got me interested in this are the markers. You couldn't really do a cartoony style in Art Academy, which is why I mainly use Colours 3D.

 

But those markers will probably pry me away from it.

Hmmm... Not sure how to feel about that box art. It seems a bit too cluttered compared to the Japanese one.

 

Although I'm downloading it, so complaining seems a bit pointless.

It does a good job of subtly telling you what the "game" is about though (and no it's not just learning how to draw Pikachu before you go ahead and make the obvious joke :p )

 

With the Japanese box you can interpret it as being just a set of tools for drawing Pokemon, while the EU one makes it clearer that it's about learning how to draw Pokemon; so for that reason EU box>JPN one IMO :)

I suppose so.

 

Although, considering that the lessons are not the main reason I'm buying this, perhaps the Japanese one is more accurate for me.

I have no interest in this but that Japanese box art is beautiful
