Over 500,000 copies of Art Academy sold in the UK
Wondering why Nintendo is publishing a sequel to Art Academy? It could have something to do with the game’s sales.
Over 500,000 copies of the original game were sold in the UK alone. Between the rest of the sales in Europe, North America, and Japan, I wouldn’t be surprised if Art Academy is at a million units worldwide.
Marketing assistant Rebecca Archer commented on the success of Art Academy as well as expectations for the sequel:
“(Art Academy) continues to be one of the top performing Nintendo DS games each week. With all its new lessons and features we expect that New Art Academy for 3DS to meet, and hopefully succeed, our sales expectations.”
