Dominate the Fashion World in Style Savvy: Fashion Forward

Master Five Professions in Trendy Nintendo 3DS Game

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–There is so much more to Style
Savvy: Fashion Forward
than just playing dress up. The
refreshingly deep Nintendo
3DS
game, which launches on Aug. 19, teaches fashionistas of all
ages about creativity, fashion and management skills. The game lets you
enjoy an incredibly fun lifestyle, while also learning the ins and outs
of the fashion world! By taking on five different professions with their
own game mechanics and challenges, you can help customers look and feel
glamorous, while also shaping fashion trends all around town. Think you
know fashion? Put your sense of style to the test!


“There’s a reason fans have fallen in love with the Style Savvy
series,” said Cindy Gordon, Nintendo of America’s Vice President of
Corporate Affairs. “The games are a pleasant surprise for anyone that
plays them, and the feeling of nailing your looks and pleasing customers
in the game is as satisfying as ever in Style Savvy: Fashion Forward.”

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward features five different professions
that you can master: boutique manager, designer, hair stylist, makeup
artist and model. Each one has unique gameplay and can be switched on
the fly. That means you can play the game while focusing on the one job
you really want, or mix it up and dip your feet into everything.

As a boutique manager, you recommend clothing based on customers’
requests and personal styles. By selecting from an eventual collection
of more than 19,000 pieces of clothing and accessories, you can gain
your customers’ trust, which, in turn, will make them want to purchase
more items at your store. But make sure you keep your shop well stocked!
Stop by the Exhibition Hall’s wholesale outlets to stock up on fashion
items that are constantly changing. Play your fashion cards right and
everyone will be wearing your clothes and following your style trends.

Taking on the role of designer will push the limits of your creativity.
After you receive a request for a new article of clothing, you can enter
your shop to create it. By speaking with locals around town, you will
discover new patterns to use in your creations. You can even discover
what’s “hot” by using the awesome in-game Fashion 101 guide to learn
about real-world fashion topics like accent colors and clothing styles.
Once you perfect your line, you can sell your clothes in the shop or
collect commissions to make even more clothes. Will your clothes be the
hit of the new season? Or will they end up in the bargain bin? You won’t
know until you try!

Some customers will enter your shop looking for a chic new haircut or
flawless makeover. That’s when your hair styling and makeup artist
skills come into play. Asking the right questions and finding the right
look will determine which style is right for each customer. If you’re
confident you know what they want, grab your tools and get styling!
Customers that love your choice will come back for future appointments
and, most importantly, recommend you to more people around town.

Designing all these clothes and inspiring all these new fashion trends
is great, but what good is being a fashion mogul if you can’t show off
your work? By choosing to be a top model, you can model for photo shoots
in the Photo Studio and at fashion shows, or even share your styles via
the StreetPass feature to showcase some of your best looks. If you have
wireless internet access, you can also visit a friend’s shop to explore
and take pictures, compete in Miiverse contests and swap designs online
with friends. You can even personalize a miniature dollhouse that holds
showrooms and spare rooms, which you can furnish and decorate with
items. These custom dollhouses can also be shared via StreetPass.

A wide variety of different amiibo
figures like Mario, Peach, Rosalina, Samus and Isabelle can also be used
in the game. Each different character provides a new, exclusive clothing
item or accessory related to that character. For example, tap the Kirby
amiibo while playing to get a stylish (and adorable) pink Kirby purse.
Discovering the fashion items that each amiibo provides and putting them
to good use is a big part of the fun. For a full list of compatible
amiibo, visit http://www.nintendo.com/amiibo/games/detail/style-savvy-fashion-forward-3ds.
