Lifestyle: New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward on Nintendo 3DS
I'm bringing you all a slightly different sort of review today, It comes in the form of a game review and I have to say part of me was super excited when the email about it dropped in my inbox as I've been really into games at the moment as with writing my dissertation a girl needs her switching off time and taking a break!
I've been one of those people who always plays games using applications on my phone so I was delighted to be able to try out the New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward (which is exclusively available on Nintendo 3Ds).
The concept of the game is that it gives you the opportunity to run your own boutique. I wouldn't have looked at Nintendo when it comes to Fashion games but I've been playing this game for the past few hours (yes I'm hooked) and I'm really liking it.
As you can see from the photo above I even created my own character and weirdly I think it looks (a little) like me. There was plenty of options of what to wear, what to make sure your character looked like right down to your eyebrows! The photo is what my character first looked like I soon managed to change her to wearing a striped top and jeans (my go-to outfit!)
To begin with in the game I was introduced to a woman called Sophie who showed me my own boutique and asked for style advice. The location of the game is a city called Beaumonde City and as the game goes along you unlock different locations. So far I've unlocked Primrose Park and Caprice Chalet, unlocking these locations has helped me generate customers for my Boutique.
When it came to the boutique, a customer will walk in and you have a chat with them and the aim is to obviously make them spend as much money as possible and so once the customer has told me what they're looking for I direct them to the most expensive product!
I actually really love owning my own boutique on the game and it's given me a little more of an insight to what it's like owning your own shop. You are not just the owner on the game but you're the stylist too. You can also style your customers (who come into the shop) with some of the latest trends and make sure they're all styled properly. You can do things on the game such as unlock hair styles, clothes and buy miniature furniture for the dolls house.
To celebrate the launch of New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward you can download a demo version of the game on the Nintendo 3DS E-Shop. You can find out more about the game and watch a trailer for the game here.
