If you’ve never tried it before, the Art Academy series actually offers a pretty interesting set of tools and tutorials for drawing and illustration. It won’t turn the average Nintendo 3DS user into Picasso, or anything, but it’s a nice way to relax, learn how to draw and make stuff.
Pokémon Art Academy is, obvious, the Pocket Monster extension of the series, and Nintendo of America has finally given the game a solid release date. North American 3DS owners will be able to learn how to draw all sorts of Pokémon starting on Oct. 24, 2014.
Once you learn how to draw the best Mewtwo ever, you’ll be able to share it on the Miiverse with others. Even better, you can transfer your work to an SD card and put it on your computer for digital sharing or even printing, though exactly how high the quality will be remains to be seen.
