Art Academy: Home Studio a Wii U Exclusive

It’s time for Art Academy’s return! Art Academy: Home Studio will be arriving in the Wii U eShop as a console exclusive on June 25th. It’s a full retail game, though there will be no boxed copy on store shelves.

The game will have a full toolset and 30 lessons for beginners to learn how to create the art they desire, along with SD card import/exports, and the ability to display your work in a personal gallery. You’ll also be able to share your artistic creations on Miiverse!

There’s an additional key feature to this Art Academy entry which we haven’t seen before: YouTube integration. This is the second Nintendo game, along with Mario Kart 8, to include a tool in-game that allows players to upload videos. With Art Academy, you’ll be able to upload time-lapse videos showing your process to create the artwork, choosing from one, two, or five minute video options.

If you already have Art Academy: Sketchpad on the Wii U, you’ll be eligible for a $4 discount on this title. Pre-purchase is available, should you want to hop on this wagon train right now.

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
