Nintendo Art Academy

On October 25, Nintendo will release its new game Art Academy for Nintendo DS (pictured), which combines all 10 lessons from both its preceding downloadable gaming apps “First Semester” and “Second Semester,” teaching players art-making skills that “are transferable to real-life art materials outside of the Nintendo DS environment.” Riiiiight.

Lessons will teach you everything a hand-held game console can explain “about color, shading, movement and perspective,” while providing “everyone from beginners to experts with tools to create their own works of art.” As much as I really like video game art, this doesn’t even qualify as a video game, or as art, much less a combination of the two.
