Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique has launched today for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL. Players assume the role of an assistant in a fashion store and act as personal shopper for whoever walks through the door. As your customers’ happiness spreads new areas of the town open up for you to explore including the Hairdressers and the Photo Studio. This also unlocks more brands and new interior designs to give your boutique a unique look.
Spruce up your store with some of your earnings, so more people stop by to look at your wares, and put your best ensembles on display in your corner of the Fashion Quarter for others to visit online. You can freely decorate the interior of your own apartment as well, for example by purchasing new furniture. In addition, the unique features of Nintendo 3DS will enable you to download brand new items for your private wardrobe, while via StreetPass you can swap Stylist Cards with other players. Not only will the character of a player you exchanged cards with come by your shop looking for a new outfit, you’ll also be able to visit each other’s online shops at any time, so other players could be checking out your store even when you’re not playing. When you return to the game you’ll find out if anyone liked your clothes or maybe even purchased some.
Nintendo 3DS owners can also look forward to the New Style Boutique: Shopping Experience special demo which allows anyone to window shop in the Fashion Quarter part of the game. In this demo, users can visit real players’ online shops and splash out on items using a fixed budget or express their appreciation for their favourite outfits. Any items purchased using in-game currency in this demo version can be transferred to the full game. Happy in-game customers and real-world votes of confidence may be just what you need to set up your own shop and eventually make it big in the game’s Fashion Contests. Select your model, choose their outfit and even change their hair and make-up before sending them out onto the catwalk. Success brings you prizes such as rare pieces of clothing or accessories and the option to enter more prestigious contests. If you are good enough then you can enter the Elite Contest and test your fashion skills against the best of the best.
Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique is out today across Europe for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL, both as packaged software as well as for download through Nintendo eShop. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique.
