I don't usually do straight PR, but this game caught my eye for obvious reasons… It's not everyday you see a game featuring a female character trying to net a boyfriend through the art of ballroom seduction.
Tres intriguing, no?
The game won't be out until fall, but here are some shots and a little bit from the press release:
Princess Debut for the Nintendo DS—
"A rhythm and adventure game for girls.The game is coming to the Nintendo DS system this fall. Published anddeveloped by Natsume, Princess Debut offers gamers the chance to stepthrough a portal into a magical world where they become a princess.Girls will have to master their dance moves and woo one of the sixcharming princes in time for the big ball!"
"In the game, players find themselves in a fantasy world where they have 30 days to get ready for the big ball; they'll have to master their dance moves and win over one of the six handsome princes to be theirpartner. They'll meet and woo the princes through the game's large,branching storyline and exciting event system. Once the player convinces a prince to be their dancing partner, it's time to go out onthe dance floor! Players will use the Touch Screen to guide their character gracefully across the dance floor while matching their partner's rhythm. All of the dances in the game are taken from motion-captured professional dancers, so the game is just as impressive to watch as it is fun to play."
"Princess Debut offers four modes of play including Story, Ballroom,Practice, and Movie. With 20 outfits to find, 14 unique endings to experience, and 18 different kinds of music and dance styles to choose from (including Waltz, Latin dance, Tango, Ballroom, and much more),there's no shortage of things to see and do!"
I'm always up for something different, and I'll be damned if this isn't it.
