Forget those Barbie horse riding games THQ is about to release a Barbie game that's much more like playing with an actual Barbie doll! Or at least like playing with that severed Barbie head that my little sister had when we were kids (and likely inspired many a budding stylist)... Barbie Jet, Set & Style will have you using your Wiimote and DS stylus to style hair and clothing, apply makeup and do manicures for glamorous clients with the ultimate goal of impressing the ultimate client: Barbie herself!
"Barbie has a rich history in video games, and thanks to Nintendo's popular systems, this is the first time we are able to bring classic Barbie play patterns to a video game," said Martin Good, Executive Vice President of PlayTHQ™, the company's division for kids, family and casual games. "Girls around the world love to dress, style and make up Barbie, and we've combined those activities with an exciting story to create a Barbie game experience unlike any before."
You'll travel the globe in your sexy pink jet to 10 different international cities to style coiffures in the "Hair-tastic" styling salon, giving manicures and makeovers for your clientele. Will you be good enough to finally style Barbie herself at her ultimate Global Glam Fashion Show?
Is it wrong that I kind of want to find out when Barbie Jet, Set & Style is released this September on the Wii ($29.99) and DS ($19.99)?
