I always wanted to try the original Style Savvy for Nintendo DS, but I never got around to it unfortunately. Curious about the franchise, I decided to try the demo for the latest game up on the Nintendo 3DS’ eshop. Unfortunately, I was not able to try the demo that requires you to save it on system data since I didn’t have enough space, but I did try the second demo that could be saved on a memory card, so this mini impression pertains only to this one demo.

The demo I was able to try dealt with the fashion show part of the game. In the demo, I was given a specific look I was supposed to demonstrate and I had to pick the model I felt would best help me, then her make up and hair, and finally I had to pick out the outfit. Being someone who is pretty crazy about customization, I had a lot of fun picking out the outfit. I tried my best and I managed to win the fashion show too, after which the demo ended. It was a short demo, but it gave me a taste of how addictive Style Savvy can be. Sufficient to say, I will definitely be picking up the 3DS game at some point. It’s great to see a “girly” game done with such effort and dedication. The sheer amount of clothing the game boosts along with the very pretty graphics tells me that Nintendo and syn Sophia took their female customers seriously and put a lot of work into this game. And I can totally get behind supporting that!

The fashion show part of the game, which the second demo allows you to try out.

But that’s not to say only girls can enjoy this game. It’s clear based on the marketing that Nintendo is aiming this at women, but the game is so well made that anyone, who likes games with extensive clothing customization, would probably enjoy it. In fact, I’ve seen a few guys online say they enjoyed the game too!
