Andersson announced the latest work 'Colors Live' of the Colors series of drawing software he has developed for Nintendo Switch.

With Colors Live, you can draw with the dedicated pressure-sensitive pen, Colors Sonar Pen. Colors SonarPen is developed by Hong Kong venture company

GreenBulb, which developed the stylus pen SonarPen.

Colors Sonar Pen is used by inserting it into the Nintendo Switch's earphone jack.

You can also check the drawing process from scratch.

Developer Andersson explained how he decided to develop Colors Live for Nintendo Switch, saying 'Many fans asked' I want you to develop Colors! For Nintendo Switch '. I didn't intend to release drawing tools on the Nintendo Switch unless I could do better than anything, and the obstacle was the existence of the pen. (While the Nintendo Switch supports touch, I had to draw with my fingers (because there's no dedicated pen) and I didn't think I could make anything so good. '

But more than a year ago, when I was contacted by a friend of a developer living in Hong Kong, and when I saw the pressure-sensitive pen he was working on, 'This is perfect for Nintendo Switch,' Andersson said. Seems to have felt. Andersson and his friend started the joint development of Colors Sonar Pen, a dedicated pen included with Colors Live. By using this pen, it is possible to detect writing pressure, and it is possible to realize highly responsive drawing that can change the thickness and transparency of the line by pressure.

A button is placed on the grip of Colors SonarPen, and you can change the pen color and brush type by pressing this button. Also, because shortcuts can be assigned to Joy-Con, you can also perform operations such as scaling the canvas and returning / forwarding the work process with one button.

Such Colors Live is looking for investment at Kickstarter of the cloud funding site. At the time of writing the article, more than 1,000 people have invested, and already about 6 million yen of investment has been gathered, far exceeding the target amount of about 1.6 million yen. 370 With the investment of Swedish krona (about 4000 yen), you can get the code to install Colors Live from the Nintendo eShop, the official online store of Nintendo Switch, and the dedicated pen Colors Sonar Pen.
