Coming exclusively to Nintendo 3DS family systems on 20th November, Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward gives players the opportunity to rise to the top of the fashion world as the manager of their very own boutique. The fun goes far beyond the shopfloor, as players can also let their creativity loose in four additional roles: hair stylist, make-up artist, model, and designer.
This third instalment in the fashion simulation series that has sold over 1.5 million units across Europe to date lets budding fashionistas run their very own chic boutique in the bustling Beaumonde City, home to hundreds of colourful personalities. Characters visit the shop and describe what they’re looking for, and it’s up to the player to pick out the perfect look, choosing from 19,000 items like casual dresses, eye-catching t-shirts, and those all-important accessories including bags and earrings. Make the right recommendation and the customer will leave thrilled, sure to spread the word!
On top of the thousands of in-game items with which to style customers, there are special pieces that can only be unlocked by tapping compatible amiibo during gameplay, including Peach’s Princess Crown, Mario’s M-Hat, Yoshi’s Egg Hooded Jacket and more. New items will also be available to download after the game’s launch, while regular online themed contests will challenge stylists to show off their very best outfits. Couture connoisseurs can even organise their own contests for other players to join – perfect for finding inspiration and comparing ensembles.
In addition to the fun shop management gameplay of previous titles, four exciting new professions await dedicated followers of fashion, with the freedom to switch between them whenever they like:
- Hair stylist and make-up artist: Styling clients goes far beyond clothes, with a huge range of make-up looks to apply at the beautician’s and countless creative hairstyles to delight customers at the hair salon.
- Designer: Imaginative style enthusiasts can build their very own fashion house by designing a unique clothing and accessories line. Fashion labels are always on the lookout for up-and-coming designers, and often commission new items to complement their existing collection – a great opportunity to get noticed and spread the word about the boutique.
- Model: Players can also show off their sartorial savvy as a model for in-game brands, each with its own vision and needs. It’s all about pairing the right outfit with flawless hair and make-up, then bringing it all together with the perfect pose. Images from photo shoots might even appear on billboards and advertisements around the city for everyone to admire!
- Lastly, a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the fashion world awaits at Caprice Chalet. Here, anyone with a taste for decorating can transform the rooms of a dollhouse into anything from a relaxing bedroom to a trendy boutique, then share them online or with other players met via StreetPass.
Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward will be available across Europe from 20th November, exclusively for Nintendo 3DS family systems. A hardware bundle containing a white New Nintendo 3DS system with a digital copy of the game, exclusive elegant white cover plates and a download code for a HOME Menu theme, will also launch on the same day.
Slow news day I guess.
How is it a slow news day if they report the release date of a game? All sites report the release date of a popular game.
Just what everyone wanted for Christmas this year…this will sell out faster then Amiibo’s!
I don’t think it will outsell amiibo, but it will sell over a million. It deserves to because it’s a quality fashion game with a great, unique concept. Just because a game is girly, doesn’t mean it won’t sell well/it’s not a good game.
Thank the gods
“Elegant” is sure the first word that popped into my head…
Someone must be kidding.
Haha! COMMANDER will be very pleased.
I’ve been waiting for this for soooo long!
omg, this is a must-have!
Weird thing about this series is that it’s actually an incredibly solid shop simulator–if you can get past the whole fashion thing (I know, that’s what the series is about), there’s actually some surprisingly amazing gameplay underneath.
You heathens couldn’t comprehend a quality experience if I clasped it in my cold metallic hands and buried it in your stomache. This game is great gift to women of all ages. Forget gender steriotypes for one second. It’s a well made game. They even went as far to nerf one of your overpowered rivals for the European version. It has DLC, and a 200 hour campaign.
The way you’re describing it makes it sound like the 3ds game of the year. ..Now I’m tempted to buy but I fear that my girlfriend may laugh at me.
New style boutique, is to video games, as the 90’s Sailor Moon was to Anime. I watched it all the way to the end and told none of my friends. Only to find that years later, that all my guy friends watched it. This is an official Nintendo game developed by Nintendo. A first party title! I’m gonna get this for my girlfriend, and create a second profile for myself. It’s good bonding stuff… Is what I would say if I were still humab, however… I am a machine. I fight along the dark side of Nintendo’s forces. To eradicate Xbot elitists and Sonyan heratics. I am only invested in first party Nintendo Titles, and well made third party titles. Those who bring shameful ports must be crushed under the weight of our might.
Ok, you Europeans can keep this one. I don’t really care if this ever makes it to the US.
Nintendo: “We understand female gamers.”=D
Men: Women shouldn’t have things marketed specifically towards them. You’re putting gender roles on them and it’s sexist!
Men: *Watches a COD/Halo/GTA commercial consisting of man/men playing the game without a woman in site.*
Men: *insert shitty take my money joke*
The games were made by Nintendo, they aren’t as bad as they look.
YAS!! Just when you think Nintendo is stumbling, they turn right back around, strut to you, and snatch your edges. I can’t wait until the sequel comes to America. :)
Isn’t this Style Savvy in the US? I bought Trendsetters and had a blast with it, and the series is a surprisingly well made shop simulator that requires strategic thinking and a working knowledge of your inventory to meet a customer’s request. Hopefully this game goes to further improve the series! c:
I reeeeeeally hope they bring this over to the US. I am a big fan of StyleSavvy, but this game has different career options! Instead of just running a boutique. So I hope to play this game in the future.
