Nintendo's announcement that the 3DS sequel Style Savvy: Trendsetters would be coming out on October 22 got me all psyched for the game, so I dug my copy of the DS original out of mothballs to see how my shop, "Sassy", was doing. Turns out I've got more money than I know what to do with, and a store full of stock so I can't buy any more. But that's besides the point. What I want to say is that I had forgotten how much addictive fun it was to play dress-up with the customers. And myself! Heck, the last time I played it must have been in the fall or winter, because my character was dressed in a long skirt and heavy jacket. She looked fabulous, but not seasonal. So I gave her a fabulous new short hairdo and summery wardrobe, then went to town helping customer after customer find the perfect look for them.
So needless to say, I'm super-excited for the sequel to hit the 3DS. Especially because you get to dress up cute boys as well, this time around! I'm going to miss holding the DS sideways, especially since the vertical screen was helpful when looking at an entire look from head to toe. But at the same time, based on the footage in this trailer, I can appreciate having the customer on screen at the same time as the outfit you're putting together for them. In the original, you have to keep switching back and forth if you want to remind yourself what their personal style appears to be so you can pick just the right clothing to sell them. I'm also loving the graphics, especially that fashion show footage. The clothes are going to look fantastic. And I hope that Nintendo takes advantage of SpotPass to automatically download new designers and special items to our shops!
Come on, who else is getting this on day one with me?
