Art Academy: Sketchpad was delisted from the Nintendo Wii U eShop in North America on June 02nd, 2015, following the announcement of the North American release of Art Academy: Home Studio on the June 01st Nintendo Direct Micro. The game was most likely delisted in order to entice consumers towards the newer and more feature-complete release. Art Academy: Sketchpad was not delisted in any other region during this time as Home Studio was released physically everywhere except North America.
