PixelMaker arrived on the European Wii U eShop on 28th April, and now Nostatic Software has confirmed it's hitting the North American store this week on 5th May; it'll cost $2.99 in the US.

Having previously brought us VoxelMaker, Nostatic now seems to be taking the same approach to producing pixel art. At a budget price this promises the ability to utilise the GamePad for producing scenes of pixel art, which can then naturally be shared to Miiverse. A screen showing the differing GamePad / TV views is below, along with a list of features that will be available.

  • Zoom in on the GamePad while seeing your whole scene on the TV.
  • Cut/Copy/Paste selections with flip and rotate options.
  • Fill by selection, flood-fill or replace all of a color.
  • Draw and erase with multiple brush sizes.
  • Pixel-perfect line and stroke drawing modes.
  • Support for multi-layer drawing, with layer visibility toggles.
  • Undo/Redo and image auto-save and restore.
  • Palette-based color management with a number of classic samples.
  • Pick colors interactively from the image.
  • Optional grid overlay.
