Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Style Boutique (Nintendo 3DS) (Video Game)
I have the original of this game for the DS and wasn't sure whether to bother with the new version, however I'm glad I did, it's so much fun (and I'm 42 btw!) It follows the same sort of format as the original, you get talent spotted and open your own boutique, you serve customers and buy clothes for the stock room. You still meet people at the park etc only now you can go whenever you fancy and there are more places to visit. In addition you serve men as well as women (and some of them are quite cute, for cartoons!!) which makes a change. There is so much more interaction in this version, you get to know your customers more, meet them out of work etc.
There is a hairdressers and beauty salon with a large range to choose from as well as special designer stylists you can pay extra for. You can buy furniture and decorations for your apartment as well as changing the look of your shop.
I love that you can take photos of people and scenes most of the time and not just rely on the annoying photographer to take them.
If you're into techy stuff there's all sorts going on there too, visiting other people's shops, selling and buying outfits etc. I'm not interested in all that so haven't tried it but I'm sure younger people will enjoy interacting with friends. All in all it's a great game, yes if you play for an hour it can get repetitive!! But it's strangely addictive and the animation is definitely a step up from the previous game so it's nice to look at.
