TYRA MAIL! America’s Next Top Model DS game revealed, former contestant reacts

Eidos has revealed that they will be releasing a game based off of America’s Next Top Model for the Nintendo DS on November 7. In the United Kingdom. OK, then …

Developed by Independent Arts Software, the game puts players in control of an aspiring model, and will have them competing in different categories like “Make Up,” “Fashion,” “Catwalk,” and “Photoshoots.” No word on whether the game will feature a digital likeness of the bat s**t insane Tyra Banks, or the silver locks of Jay Manuel. 

We got in touch with a former America’s Next Top model contestant, Sarah Dankelman of “Cycle Four” fame, to get her reaction to this huge announcement.

“I can’t believe this is actually real,” she told us. “Maybe I’ll actually last longer if I play the game.”

Press release after the jump.
