As you were browsing through Nintendo's lineup of upcoming 3DS games, what title immediately jumped out at you? Style Savvy: Trendsetters, you are absolutely correct! It's the follow-up to Style Savvy, the DS boutique management sim from 2009, and I am flipping out!
You think this is a joke? I am dead f*ckin' serious. While I was still a Dtoid community member, I wrote an exhaustive review that nobody asked for simply because why the hell not? The game received high praise in Japan, which made me extremely curious. How does girls' dress-up garbage get such solid reviews?
It is quite the deceptive piece of software. You think it's all about trying on shoes and sh*t, but it's actually a business management trainer for young girls. You have to properly supply your store as per the tastes of your clientele, budgeting for what styles are in season and what you can actually afford.
Style Savvy: Trendsetters, out on October 22, adds an element that was missing out from its predecessor: men's fashion! Maybe the game will finally help me out of my current fashion "situation"! At least, that's the excuse I'm using when the cashier rolls their eyes as I'm trying to make my software purchase.
