Over the past few weeks Nintendo has been running an Art Academy event on Miiverse to celebrate Splatoon, encouraging fans to show off their skills in honour of the Wii U title. Plenty evidently did, and Nintendo has picked out some favourites to show off just how talented some Wii U owners are. The big N's Miiverse team has picked out...
Had popped up in earlier rumours
The Art Academy series has had multiple versions across platforms, with a Pokemon spin-off being a notable change in direction on 3DS in terms of stepping away from the standard formula. Now there are listings that suggest a Disney spin-off could be in the offing for the portable system. One such listing is on...
For all you North American artists
No doubt helped along by strong ties to Google, Nintendo has been making integrated YouTube uploads a key part of some Wii U games. The option is particularly neat in Art Academy: Home Studio - Art Academy: Atelier in Europe - as uploads consist of time-lapse animations of your masterpieces. We're big fans of Home...
Luigi needs swimming lessons
Though the market for a relatively pricey drawing app from Nintendo may not be as sizeable as it was in the DS glory days, we're big fans of Art Academy: Atelier - Art Academy: Home Studio in North America - as it incorporates the hefty touchscreen of the Wii U GamePad with some nice home console features. One neat...
Worthy of any virtual gallery
A neat new feature in Art Academy: Atelier / Art Academy: Home Studio is the option to upload time-lapse footage of your creations to YouTube. It's a practice popular among artists on the video platform, and provides multiple options that are automated - rather like Mario Kart TV in Mario Kart 8. The new Art Academy is...
Hung, drawn, & water-coloured
Nintendo's latest foray into its Art Academy series will no doubt appeal to the arty and the creatively-minded, but that's not the only audience that can benefit from Art Academy: Atelier (known as Art Academy: Home Studio in North America). This reporter has barely touched an art supply in ten years, and has never...
By its very nature, inspiration often strikes when we least expect it to. A random walk through city streets might spark the idea that forms an entire novel, just as the sound of rain lashing against a bedroom window could help to shape the mood of a composition. The Art Academy series has always respected and encouraged the creative...
Art Academy: Home Studio - or Art Academy: Atelier in Europe - is shaping up to be an intriguing title and potentially the most impressive entry in the series to date. There'll be a bigger touch screen to work with than at any point before, and there'll be an option to upload videos to YouTube that show your creations coming together...
The full Wii U version is finally coming
While completing work on the full version for Wii U, Nintendo released Art Academy: SketchPad in August 2013 to tide over creative gamers for a short spell. The full Art Academy then missed its 2014 release target, prompting some concerns it had been sidelined; those worries can now be laid to rest with the...
May have had a PA write the post, we'll never know
We're well aware that a good number of the Nintendo Life community are rather talented artists, or perhaps enjoy looking at others' masterpieces, so it's worth noting that one of the best Art Academy: SketchPad contests to date is underway. As you can see in the entry above it's based on The Legend...
Some lovely work
An enduring legacy of the DS, 3DS and Wii U in future may well be the use of their resistive touch screens for impressive drawing apps. The Art Academy franchise is front and centre in this respect, giving gamers the tools to express themselves through art or to take tentative first steps in learning how. It's a refreshingly...
Joins previously confirmed delay in Europe
Art Academy for Wii U, which will be an eShop-only release, has had a low profile existence, enduring delays and only occasional mentions by Nintendo. The full release follows the 2013 arrival of the pared-back Art Academy: SketchPad; the updated release will have the lessons and full tool-set typically...
Make Smeargle proud by sketching Fletchling
Since we first put stylus to touchscreen on the original DS, Nintendo's handhelds have made full use of the unique interface by allowing us to interact with games in a whole new way. Some ideas have worked better than others, but the natural act of scribbling or doodling shapes, in particular, has never...
Games can be art
A new Art Academy game has been announced for Wii U and will be available exclusively on the Wii U eShop. The title is a follow-up to last year's Art Academy: SketchPad and will offer users a wide range of tools, as well as in-depth advanced lessons, to get the most out of their digital drawing. Unsurprisingly, the Wii U GamePad...
Will draw you in
Update: Nintendo of America has now issued its own press release confirming this title for the region, but has only provided a release window of "this fall". Original article: Not long ago it was confirmed that Pokémon Art Academy is arriving in Japan on 19th June as a retail title on 3DS. We speculated that a release in the...
