The latest DS title aimed at non-traditional gamers will be a digital colouring book featuring some of the greatest artists of all time.
For once, it's Europe and not Japan which will be getting a zany DS self-improvement style title. Not brain training, or skin-care, or even face training, the latest subject to hit Nintendo's portable will be painting. Paint by DS is a "digital colouring book" featuring paintings by famous artists including Hokusai, Cezanne, and Van Gogh.
Wannabe artists will wield their DS stylus to mix oil and water-based paints to create different colours and consistencies and then get painting. There will be 15 colouring-in challenges and a series of mini-games themed around famous artworks.
Paint by DS will be released in Europe on August 24, priced at £19.99/24.99 euros, co-published by Mercury Games and Ertain BV, as part of the Zen Series aimed at non-traditional gamers. Additionally it will launch in the US in the fourth quarter of the year and ship with two limited editions, one which includes a paint set, and one a "paint book."
