Pokemon Art Academy coming October 24th

by: Sean Colleli -

Nintendo's Pokemon franchise knows no bounds. On October 24th you can pick up Pokemon Art Academy for the 3DS, either at retail or on the eShop. The game gives you simple lessons on sketching, shading and painting your favorite pocket monsters, under the tutelage of art professor Andy. Pokemon is undeniably an evergreen cash cow for Nintendo, but I have to wonder if they'll make a Mario Paint reboot for all the hipsters who grew up on the SNES game.
