Look Out, Style Savvy – This Fashion Modeling Game Has A Great Deal Of Depth

By Eugene . November 3, 2013 . 9:30am

 

 

The considerable complexities of how to dress, match and mix clothing’s, accessories and other related things surrounding a fashionable woman before they head out is a black box to me. But just watching Model Stylish Audition: Dream Girl’s video, I think I might be able to get even just a glimpse into that world already.

 

This Nintendo 3DS simulation game lets players create their own lady character who stumbles and slowly grows into the world of fashion and modeling. It’s up to you to guide her to become the next big thing in the modeling world.

 

To that end, there’s some 5,000 different clothing’s to dress up in, and I’m relatively sure this doesn’t include the even further staggering amounts of customizable minor details players can also do such as individual nail paintings and artworks—or even just designing and creating your own fashion clothing’s at will.

 

You’ll be able to choose from dozens of eye styles, colors, makeups, hair… the list is so long I’m sure I haven’t caught it all. Once done, players can head out to town and hopefully get scouted by modeling agency scouts who just so happen to be wandering around for the next big thing (You) and who might score you on your looks and outfit. Do well and a modeling shoot might occur which is your chance!

 

Those shoots can range from magazine covers to even a successful encounter to strut down the walkway—where a mini-rhythm/match game takes place. It seems there’ll also be conversational encounters with more than just generic agency guys and the possibility of romance.

 

It’s also worth nothing (if it wasn’t obvious from the video) that the game is played sideways, which as history has told my fingers is actually very awkward. The flat-screened Nintendo 2DS might fix that, though.

 

 

Model Stylish Audition: Dream Girl will be available in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS November 14th.

    Not sure if title is pun or not…
    Anyways…
    OBJECTION!
    The problem with your 2DS statement is that THERE IS NO JP region 2DS planned to be sold! This is actually a bother, since my friend wants a cheaper option, but wants to play JP games.

      Maybe someday along the line, when the current 3DS models available lose sales momentum. At least “2DS” has been trademarked, so Nintendo is contemplating it!

    • Göran Isacson

      Really? That seems a little weird- one wonders why they don’t think it’s worth the effort to market a 2DS to Japan?

      • s07195

        Maybe there isn’t a need to, since the 3DS is more common? The 2DS is meant to be an introductory console or something, after all.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Yay yay yay

  • Shippoyasha

    I always loved these super girlish fashion games ever since the DS days. A nice break from saving the world or murdering soldiers all the time.

    • ShadowDivz

      I usually start a farm and get married.

      But i guess this is nice too.

      • Namuro

        Sounds nice, but…I can’t put down my weapons just yet… Still so much more monsters to hunt…

        I plan to become an ace attorney once I’m retired, though.

          Maybe I’ll go back home and open a store that might be on the brink of failing and work hard to rebuild it. Grant some wishes… Then I’ll head out on an adventure and make sure to bring a nice map or two so I can document everything I see while trying to avoid those nasty FOEs.

    “5,000 different clothing’s”

    I think we usually say “different articles of clothing” since clothing is already plural.

    Nice to see a game that still utilizes the old side-DS style orientation.

  • Mordina

    This sounds so fun and girly! I want it! A plus for romance~

  • rurin

    OOOooooooooooooo this seems like a lot of fun lol

    I’d love if it was localized, but I doubt it will be :’(
    Finally the otome game addition we all wish was attached to Style Savvy xD

    • SerendipityX

      If only the guy who delivered our clothes in Style Savvy realized we ordered so much just see his face!

      • http://vindictushots.tumblr.com/ Okuni-chan

        lol! Yes *sigh*

    Sold!

  • Leah

    It looks like this is coming out in NA too from Rising Star Games?:

    I haven’t seen advertising from them at all about it though.

    • http://www.siliconera.com Jenni

      Different game, from what I’ve heard and seen. Girl’s Fashion Shoot has no romance and is already out in Japan.

      • Leah

        Oh huh. Thanks for the heads up. Looking forward to Girls’ Fashion Shoot coming here, but it’s a shame that it doesn’t have romance.

    I will buy this! Take my money!

  • Göran Isacson

    I see games like this, and yet somehow the first thing that comes to mind is “You know, it would be cool if they release like, a game in the stylish action genre ala Devil May Cry… and they also include a dress-up mode that’s been outsourced to, say, one of the companies who make games like these, and you can custom-design a really cute/cool/strange looking outfit to move around and kick a ton of ass in”.

    I don’t know if I’m too stuck in my typical action-game ways, or just see magnificent possibilities for intersecting these kind of games with the kind of games I really like.

    • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

      I really, really want that. It’d make sense and it’d be really cool (it’s also a reason I love Resonance of Fate).

      One day, I’m sure some dev will be smart enough to jump on this.

      • Göran Isacson

        Oooh yes, Resonance of Fate is a good example of what I’d like to see more of. I guess it WOULD be a lot of work to model outfits hence why I suggest outsourcing it, even though you could probably only do this after the main characters model was finalized so you know what measurements to give the outfits. And I also guess it might take up memory space and/or take money to develop that would make this decision reserved for bigger budget games… but still, I think this could be a really kickass addition to a game. Leting you design your character in detail should be something a lot more genres should look into. Dare I dream of a COD where you can actually give your military manly man-man nail art? I think I do.

    Please be on eshop so I can discreetly buy c:

    • Scissors

      Bought Style Savvy Trendsetters through Amazon, and my sister found out. She’s probably saying things about me behind my back, but whateves the game is good and anyone who judges me for liking it cause I’m a boy is dumb.

      • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

        Guys should also be allowed to enjoy fashion (and slice of life, etc) as they please~. I hope in the future, the game makes itself more open to male players too.

    Hmm… I prefer Trausenders character model more than this

  • XypherCode

    Seems cool.

  • http://mizzi-sama.tumblr.com/ Pinkyuu

    I WANT THIS NAO!

  • Scissors

    I like these games cause it’s an opportunity to explore my feminine side without fear of how society will treat me. Must buy all the fashion games!

  • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

    Doesn’t seem quite as charming as Style Savvy (or like its aesthetic holds up as well), but it looks cute. Kind of reminds me of Aikatsu meets Style Savvy.

  • katamari damacy

    this actually seems relatively complex and deep. I’m sure casual female gamers would love something like this to get their feet wet for more meaty games.
