It’s a festivus miracle
Oh Style Savvy. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. One… two… three… the fourth entry in Nintendo’s fashion empire builder, Style Savvy: Styling Star, was announced just a few weeks ago for release in Japan and Europe in the last set of Nintendo Directs to feature 3DS content. Fans in North America were left in limbo on whether or not we’d even get the game, with support for the 3DS starting to wane. But limbo no more. It has been confirmed Styling Star will hit the 3DS eShop on Christmas Day.
The prime gimmick of Styling Star is… well… styling stars. We’ll be performing makeovers on up-and-coming starlets with more than 20,000 different fashion items. Apparently, how we style them will also affect their storyline. This can either be really in-depth or simply skin deep, but it’ll be neat to see just how much damage I can do to some of these girls. I mean, how wonderful would it be to absolutely destroy an actress’s career by pulling a Felicity haircut on her?
Men’s fashion is also back and this time around we can hire a male or female assistant in our shop. Past activities such as starting a fashion brand, fashion shows and customizing our shops and apartment return. There will also be amiibo support.
Oh yeah, and there is also a demo available right now.
No price point has been announced yet and it is unclear if North America will receive a physical release down the road. Given we never got one for the excellent Rhythm Heaven Megamix, I’m not going to hold my breath. Either way, I am down to clown for more Style Savvy and thank the high heavens Nintendo and Syn Sophia are keeping the franchise going and growing.
