Disney Art Academy may not have been a knockout announcement for those that follow the 3DS closely, but it has the potential to be a major success for the portable. Combining the solid line-up of Art Academy games with the brand power of Disney seems like a smart move that could pay off in a significant way.

The Japanese market will be key to this, as it's been a location for notable Disney / 3DS success in recent years. Ahead of the April release in the country Disney has now released an extended video showcase of the upcoming drawing game / app - you don't need to be fluent in Japanese to follow the walkthrough of features and tools that are shown off here. It's worth watching to the end, too, as it shows off Miiverse sharing, image exporting and some rather cool cover plates for the smaller New 3DS (pictured above). The middle one looks amazing.
