Colors! 3D Update Available To Download On 5th April

Posted by Andy Green

Colour us excited

Collecting Smiles has announced its popular artistic application Colors! 3D has finally had its major update approved by Nintendo - it will be available to download from 5th April.

The update comes with several new additions. Firstly, you'll be able to follow your favourite artists in the gallery, which will allow you to see their new paintings as soon as they're created - in a similar way to the activity feed on Miiverse.

You'll be able to search for specific paintings and there will also be a Twitter-esque hashtagging system to allow others to find your work more easily. There's going to be a filter mechanism implemented as well, which can be used to display content that has been painted without using a reference point.

The gallery itself can be spruced up a bit too, thanks to new customisation tools - you can now add a message and a profile picture. The whole thing is becoming a lot more social.

Are you looking forward to these new additions to Colors! 3D? Is there anything else you would add to it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Thanks to Retro_on_the_go for the tip!

Does none of the update concern the actual drawing engine? It's very good, but it really needs a feature to correct the 3D effect, so that only the horizontal axis is displaced and not the vertical axis too.

Let me just learn to draw with New Art Academy and I'll be painting in 3D soon.

I pretty much never use Colours! 3D anymore ever since I got AA, Nothing in the update interests though as I don't really use the community features. I just draw, upload to my gallery, and that's it.

@rizsparky - are you joking? This is well worth its asking price and then some. I've created some fantastic pictures that I didn't know I was capable of. Buy it now if you enjoy drawing or painting even a tiny bit.

I just want them to improve the app itself, by which I mean, if you take too long drawing it becomes really glitchy. I'm a slow drawer, and the problems it causes made me stop using it a long time ago.

Same here, no undo function after 6hrs of recording. I've had it delete entire layers before too. Still love the app but hope these will be fixed. Great new social features though

This is sounding like it'll be a fantastic update. What would be super awesome is something that let you use the 3DS' mp3 player at the same time. If I'm not listening to music while I draw, I can't find any inspiration at all and end up drawing stuff that I just erase later, lol! That's just me though, and I'm no artist.

Cool, maybe then they can fix everything else that's terrible in the game.

I wish I had the capability to draw like some of the people that use Colors 3D. Some of the work people can create is quite good.

oh what the hell, are the only updates really just the posting your pictures online crap? thats nice and all but any improvements on THE ACTUALY PROGRAM would be nice. its great but it would reeeeeeally be nice to have something as simple as a -paint bucket- option, like every other painting program since ever.

The 'follow' feature will be a nice addition.

And I also hope some of the bugs are fixed.
