Dominate The Fashion World In Style Savvy: Fashion Forward

There is so much more to Style Savvy: Fashion Forward than just playing dress up. The refreshingly deep Nintendo 3DS game, which launches on Aug. 19, teaches fashionistas of all ages about creativity, fashion and management skills. The game lets you enjoy an incredibly fun lifestyle, while also learning the ins and outs of the fashion world! By taking on five different professions with their own game mechanics and challenges, you can help customers look and feel glamorous, while also shaping fashion trends all around town. Think you know fashion? Put your sense of style to the test!

“There’s a reason fans have fallen in love with the Style Savvy series,” said Cindy Gordon, Nintendo of America’s Vice President of Corporate Affairs. “The games are a pleasant surprise for anyone that plays them, and the feeling of nailing your looks and pleasing customers in the game is as satisfying as ever in Style Savvy: Fashion Forward.”

Style Savvy: Fashion Forwardfeatures five different professions that you can master: boutique manager, designer, hair stylist, makeup artist and model. Each one has unique gameplay and can be switched on the fly. That means you can play the game while focusing on the one job you really want, or mix it up and dip your feet into everything.

As a boutique manager, you recommend clothing based on customers’ requests and personal styles. By selecting from an eventual collection of more than 19,000 pieces of clothing and accessories, you can gain your customers’ trust, which, in turn, will make them want to purchase more items at your store. But make sure you keep your shop well stocked! Stop by the Exhibition Hall’s wholesale outlets to stock up on fashion items that are constantly changing. Play your fashion cards right and everyone will be wearing your clothes and following your style trends.

Taking on the role of designer will push the limits of your creativity. After you receive a request for a new article of clothing, you can enter your shop to create it. By speaking with locals around town, you will discover new patterns to use in your creations. You can even discover what’s “hot” by using the awesome in-game Fashion 101 guide to learn about real-world fashion topics like accent colors and clothing styles. Once you perfect your line, you can sell your clothes in the shop or collect commissions to make even more clothes. Will your clothes be the hit of the new season? Or will they end up in the bargain bin? You won’t know until you try!

Some customers will enter your shop looking for a chic new haircut or flawless makeover. That’s when your hair styling and makeup artist skills come into play. Asking the right questions and finding the right look will determine which style is right for each customer. If you’re confident you know what they want, grab your tools and get styling! Customers that love your choice will come back for future appointments and, most importantly, recommend you to more people around town.

Designing all these clothes and inspiring all these new fashion trends is great, but what good is being a fashion mogul if you can’t show off your work? By choosing to be a top model, you can model for photo shoots in the Photo Studio and at fashion shows, or even share your styles via the StreetPass feature to showcase some of your best looks. If you have wireless internet access, you can also visit a friend’s shop to explore and take pictures, compete in Miiverse contests and swap designs online with friends. You can even personalize a miniature dollhouse that holds showrooms and spare rooms, which you can furnish and decorate with items. These custom dollhouses can also be shared via StreetPass.

A wide variety of different amiibo figures like Mario, Peach, Rosalina, Samus and Isabelle can also be used in the game. Each different character provides a new, exclusive clothing item or accessory related to that character. For example, tap the Kirby amiibo while playing to get a stylish (and adorable) pink Kirby purse. Discovering the fashion items that each amiibo provides and putting them to good use is a big part of the fun.

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Aug. 19, and can be purchased in stores, in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS and at Nintendo.com at a suggested retail price of $29.99.

  1. Crickey, glad that this game can finally come over since I can relive the days I used to shop religiously in high school. This is definitely one of my guilty pleasures for that reason, having plenty of depth for what most call a dress up game.

    It’s a bloody shame the game is getting backlash from the male audience that never asked for this. Yes, because it’s the end of the world if Nintendo creates a game that is girl exclusive. This is kind of why I don’t understand blokes today.

    1. I don’t have a problem with this game for being for girls. My issue with these games is they think this is all girls actually want out of games. When was the last time we saw an action game marketed towards the female audience on a Nintendo console? Splatoon doesn’t count because it’s marketed towards families of all genders. Metroid doesn’t count because it’s always been a franchise meant more for the male audience than the female one.

      Now if there have been games like that & I simply missed them, I’ll be more lenient with the Style Savvy games.

      1. I can see where you’re coming from, there does need to be more of a middle ground with these games instead of going for a girl’s only approach. Most of my favorite video game franchises for example have disproportioned male audience or were male oriented to begin with with. Tekken, Dead or Alive, Dynasty Warriors, Resident Evil, Senran Kagura, Streets of Rage, Castlevania, Street Fighter, Call of Duty, Mortal Kombat, Fatal Frame, Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, Ninja Gaiden, Halo, and so forth.

        This is kind of reason why some of my friends would usually call me a tomboy or less of a girl when compared to them. Though that’s not to say we have series that equally appeal to both sexes like the Super Mario, Smash, Zelda, Sonic, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Puyo Puyo, Mega Man, Bomberman, Assassin’s Creed, Rayman, and Tales franchises. Hell, that’s part of the reason why ships are abundant in those fandoms (Yes, I’m definitely a shipper at heart). Not to sound too much like a SJW, there definitely should be more equal opportunities in future games to kind of separate these single demographics in the future. Some games already have a wide appeal, while most prefer to stick with their main target audience instead of taking risks. That’s why most video games that feature a female protagonist tend to attract a more male audience while only the lighter and cuter stuff tends to be “girls-only”. Female fans for Senran Kagura and Dead or Alive are in the minority (Yes, I can safely confirm the former since I’m part of the Senran International Forums) since the teams are aware that fanservice is part of what draws their loyal male audience. A game like Style Savvy is harmless on its own, but I sort of agree that there should be more female oriented games that are less stereotypical. Maybe that way, me sharing the same fandoms with macho men that loves to kill, shoot, and fight would seem less weird.

        1. You’re not an SJW for thinking that way. An SJW mentality would be to bitch about something being sexist or whatever other reason when it’s not even the case. Like the people bitching about the Fates controversy by claiming the girl was going through gay conversion or whatever bullshit they made up.

          1. Well, at least you are familiar with the real definition of a SJW. That was just me trying not to sound too progressive.

            Those folks are pretty annoying from my experiences. They can cry sexist about boobs and skimpy clothing while I can tear some clothes as a powerful kunoichi. Glad I’m not the only one who found the whole Soliel controversy stupid. XD
