Colors Live

Update: The physical edition of Colors Live, sequel to the beloved 3DS digital art hit Colors! 3D, is now available at select retailers. You can get your hands on it from stores like Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Walmart for $49.99.

Original Article (Thu 27th May, 2021 21:00 BST): If you didn't secure a copy of Colors Live when it popped up on Kickstarter last summer, don't worry – a physical retail version is headed our way later this year.

Last year's Kickstarter saw the return of the 3DS's popular digital art software on Switch, but this time it came bundled with new features and a cool SonarPen that plugs into the Switch's headphone jack and uses audio to draw on the touchscreen. It's clever stuff, and at a considerably lower price point than most professional digital art packages, it's no doubt tempting for Switch-owning artists.

Colors Live
Here's the physical bundle.

Previously, it was only available as a digital download code (the pen was shipped to you separately, of course), but this new physical version gives you a pretty box to add to your shelf, too. It'll be available at retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and Walmart for $49.99.

· Colors SonarPen – A pressure-sensitivity pen providing a natural painting feeling with fully customizable stroke thickness and/or opacity.
· Colors Quest – Brand-new game mode where players complete daily challenges by painting on a set theme with various rules. Designed for beginners and masters alike, users will get to see how their painting skills improve by completing these challenges.
· The Colors Gallery – Nintendo Switch players can upload their creations to Colors Gallery, a community sharing hub which has received over four million painting uploads and counting. Follow friends and talented artists and share Colors Live creations with the world.

You can still pick up the digital version right now if you don't mind missing out on the physical case; the retail version is due to launch in September.
