Here's the announcement page:http://colors.collectingsmiles.com/c...oming_soon.php
Friends: we are happy and excited to announce Colors! 3D, coming this Fall to the Nintendo 3DS eShop. For the first time, artists will be able to create and view their own 3D paintings! We promise that you will love what you can do.
Colors! 3D will also offer real-time collaborative painting for up to four people using local Wi-Fi. Collaborative painting lets you paint with your friends with all the same depth you have when painting solo – but with more fun!
Last but not least, the Colors! Gallery will be integrated into the application, making it easy to share your creations with the community and learn from your friends' techniques.

The artwork looks pretty cool, and being a fine arts major I'll definitely put this app to good use. This seems like a strictly 3rd party app and not a partnership the way flipnote hatena is for the dsi.
Colors! is a simplistic painting application combining ease of use and powerful painting tools. It is based on modern painting techniques originally developed for drawing-tablets using desktop computers. Whether you are looking for doing doodles, sketching or painting Colors! is the perfect digital sketch-book.
Colors! was originally released in June 2007 as a simple painting application for homebrew Nintendo DS. It was developed by Jens Andersson, a programmer and designer who was on sabbathical from the games-industry and wanted to experiment with the potential of the new handheld platforms. Shortly after, Rafał Piasek created this gallery where users could upload their paintings for everyone to see.
Colors! quickly became one of the most known homebrew application on Nintendo DS and has to date close to 500000 downloads world-wide (August 2010). In September 2008, Colors! was also released for iPhone and iPod Touch.
Edit: Okay Colors! is more awesome than I thought. If you click on an image you can watch a time lapse video of the artwork being created from start to finish. Pretty cool. Now I can't wait for this to drop.
