Colors! 3D Gets An Official North American Release Date

You won’t have to wait much longer, either.

One of the biggest upcoming Nintendo eShop release actually isn’t a “game” at all, but rather a 3D painting “application”. I speak of course about Colors! 3D, which has gained a lot of interest over the past several months; they’ve even released samples of paintings that are viewable on your Nintendo 3DS browser in full 3D.

It’s been mentioned in the past that Colors! 3D would be arriving on the North American eShop in early 2012, and it’s even been narrowed down to April specifically, but a tweet from Jens Andersson, one of the developers behind the painting app, has just confirmed the exact date that Colors! 3D will hit the Nintendo eShop. Those of us in The US and Canada can expect to find the app available for download on Thursday, April 5th.

If you’re having trouble tiding yourself over until the release of Colors! 3D, head on over to their website,, to check out some awesome samples of what can be done when the full version releases in just over two weeks!

    Really? I’ve been getting new 360 releases from gamefly all year. And In 3 years never had not send me anything. Maybe you have way to many or few games in your Q? I keep it at about 10. Maybe you need to talk to customer service? But let me tell I have gotten some top 360 and Wii games within a week of release (one being Darkness).
