Yes, you can learn how to draw manga-style on your DS! According to Siliconera, in Let’s Mangaka DS Style you play as a manga assistant in a “comic publishing house and actually draw manga on the touch screen to move forward. Let’s Mangaka DS Style has 550 things for you to draw and an option to make original works. These can be shared wirelessly with up to four players.
You can unlock accessories and clothes to customize your manga artist avatar as you progress. Dress stylishly and you might get a cool boyfriend.”
Judging by the images, this game is aimed at female players but guys can play this game as well…. if they don’t mind bright colors, cute graphics, and a female lead that is! The length of the game is not specified but generally, games like this tend to be on the less-than-10-hours playtime range. Graphics are reminiscent of Natsume’s dancing game Princess Debut and by the sounds of it, it seems to have dating elements as well.
So far, this game is slated to be released only in Japan on July 29. Whether an enterprising company will localize it for Western release remains to be seen but worse comes to worse, you can always import the game. For more information on this game, visit the official site here.
