    That’s just great! I was honestly a bit bummed out that Colors! might not be coming to Japan, so having a Japanese 3DS, that meant I was out of a great painting software. Luckily, Art Academy is being updated, and along with that comes new materials and an overall more robust system. Can’t wait! (◕‿◕✿)

    While i am not a good drawer/artist here, this seems to be a good game for my little sister birthday here lol.^^ Especially when she loves art.

    It seems this game is going to be must buy for me lol.^^

  • This is easily the one game that can make me purchase the 3DS XL, but at the same time, I already have the tools in hand to paint IRL. ><

    Loved the first Egokoro game, so I’m glad to see it’s getting an update.  I think it’s one of the better “productivity” games Nintendo released/published in the DS era and while it sold well in Japan, I think it appeared at a time when excitement over these types of games had waned in the US.  Hopefully it’ll find new life on 3DS!
