Street Fashion Simulation is a game where players manage the day-to-day happenings of their very own fashion boutique. They hire models and assistants, choose the look and music for their shop, run the cash register and even place magazine ads. Best of all, they take to the streets and meet different characters in search of up-and-coming trends. Players then use this inspiration in their studios where they create new clothes, accessories and even hairstyles. However, other shop owners are also prowling the streets looking for the next big thing. Players start the game as an independent designer with a small shop at a flea market. As players progress, they move into larger boutiques. The competition against rival shop owners culminates in a 'Fashion Battle,' where a panel of judges decides if a player's style has enough cute or enough cool to become all the rage. By gathering 'images' from people on the street and combining them, players create clothing lines ranging from the conventional to the most outrageous trends from the streets of Tokyo. A simple touch interface allows players to consider color and shape combinations on the bottom screen while reviewing the actual design on the upper screen. Using Nintendo DS Multi-Card Wireless Play, up to two friends can challenge each other in fabulous Fashion Battles. [Koei] Expand

  1. Pop Cutie is more of a sales simulator than Project Runway, but its mix of running a fashion boutique and creating clothes styles makes it more than just a curio. [Oct 2008, p.114]
  2. Pop Cutie! Street Fashion Simulator isn't without a few flaws, it's still a really solid sim title on the DS, and I'd easily put it up there with Diner Dash, especially when it comes to the addictive nature of maintaining a shop.

    The ridiculous characters, intentionally nonsensical gameplay and crazy clothing combinations available in Pop Cutie all come together to create one of the most unique new products being introduced to the DS library for this year's holiday season, and Moms and Dads shopping for the young girl gamers in their life would do well to choose this game as a gift over some of the same old rehashes being put out by other fashion-focused franchises on Nintendo's handheld.
  4. Really a surprising little title that will more then fill the need to play for your little girl (or boy if he likes fashion) should they like this sort of thing. I was surprised at how well it all came together.
  5. Nintendo Power

    The downside of Pop Cutie! is that all of these duties are hard to accomplish due to an unbearably clunky interface that makes simple tasks difficult. [Oct 2008, p.90]
