Nintendo strikes again with another fashion eccentric game called Pop Cutie! While the gaming world is usually male driven, this is an attempt to get the female population to join the DS revolution. Although I didn’t buy my DS for it’s fashion games, but more on that later.
Pop Cutie is a fashion game where you design, advertise and manage your very own clothing boutique. As so, you have to keep up with local fashion trends and design your clothing and accessories accordingly. From what I’m reading on the Nintendo website, the fashion styles will be “an eclectic mix of Tokyo street style, cosplay and fashion design”? I assume they mean general fashion. Also for a little added competition, you can battle rival boutiques in “fashion battles” which is probably the virtual equivalent of a Zoolander walk off. As cheesy as it sounds, I really want to try it out.
The game is simple enough and features the cutest little avatars. For the little designer in me, I wouldn’t mind trying it when it releases on September 30th in the states. Finally it’s not just a Japanese game!
