The Nintendo Switch is just about the best game console that can be used with an art application, and yet it really hasn’t had any…until this year. Now, it’s gone from having virtually nothing to there currently being all sorts of options. And, in fact, one of them will be coming very soon.
Simply called “Paint” (not to be confused with Microsoft Paint on your Windows machine), this new app from Sabec allows you to “draw, paint, and color-in anytime, anywhere.” It boasts use of both the Switch’s touchscreen and Joy-Con controls for “maximum accuracy.”
Paint for Nintendo Switch is set to release quite soon—June 18, to be exact. It’ll also only cost $9.99. That’s the same price as the very popular iPad app called Procreate; though Paint doesn’t appear to be as feature-rich, it does seem to have a decent amount of tools that’ll allow you to make some nice looking sketches and doodles.
If you’re interested in picking this up, I would definitely recommend using a tablet stylus, preferably one with a fine tip (if possible). Trust me, it will be far easier to create accurate pictures using one versus trying to do it with your finger.
Colors Live is still set to hit Switch later this summer with the SonarPen accessory. Then, later on in the Fall, the painting sim SuchArt will be sketching its way onto the hybrid system. So, there’s clearly a good amount of apps/titles for art fans to choose from on Switch.
