With this fella, how could it fail?

DSi owners will be familiar with Art Academy: First Semester and Second Semester, the artistic tools designed to help users discover their innate artistic talents. Recently released in cartridge form, the latest UK charts show it sitting inside the All-Formats Top 5, having jumped from 28th place in the previous week.

First-week sales were dogged by poor stock availability at retailers that prevented many would-be buyers from getting their hands on the virtual palette, but with fresh deliveries having reached retailers before the weekend the game claimed its place above EA's Madden NFL 11, Dragon Quest IX and other high-profile titles.

Currently pencilled in for a launch across North America on October 25th, we'll have an artistic critique of Art Academy shortly.
