Level-5 developed a hostess simulation game, loosely translated as a Cabaret Gals, for mobile phones in Japan. In Cabaret Gals players train a girl to be the top hostess of Neo Ginza by picking her hairstyle, clothes, and answering her mobile phone. Level-5 says there’s more to the story by hinting at a global event the hostesses get tied into.
At the Level-5 vision conference, Cabaret Girls was announced for Nintendo 3DS with improved stereoscopic graphics and touchscreen controls.
Also, Lupin the Third and Fujiko Mine are in the Nintendo 3DS game hanging out inside the hostess bar.
Other manga guest characters in Cabaret Gals include…
Kaiji from Gambling Apocalypse Kaiji
Salaryman Kintaro from Salaryman Kintaro
Fukuzou Moguro from Warau Salesman
Shinichi Chiaki from Nodame Cantabile
Joe from Tomorrow’s Joe
Hanma Baki from Baki the Grappler
Cabaret Gals for Nintendo 3DS is slated for a 2011 release in Japan.
