Nintendo of America has announced Pokemon Art Academy will launch for Nintendo 3DS in North America on October 24th.
Pokémon Art Academy boasts 40 lessons in which players can encounter favourite Pokémon from throughout the series, even including those from the recent Pokémon X and Pokémon Y games, such as Pikachu, Oshawott, Charizard, Torchic, Fletchling, Fennekin and many more! Students can progress through four different levels of lesson, beginning with first drawings in Starter, discovering new skills during Novice and Apprentice, and culminating with mastering a new talent in Graduate courses. They will first learn how to draw colourful Pokémon profiles, then build up Pokémon out of simple shapes like a cartoonist. Later lessons introduce colouring techniques such shading, shadow and depth that bring drawings to life. For the first time in the Art Academy series, it’s even possible to add a finishing touch by placing completed artwork against a selection of backgrounds for dramatic effect.
