New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward is quickly closing in on its European release date. With that in mind, Nintendo today sent out a bunch of assets today, including details, screenshots, and art.

First, here’s a rundown of everything you need to know about New Style Boutique 2 straight from the Big N:

Nintendo presents: New Style Boutique 2 – Fashion Forward gives players the opportunity to rise to the top of the fashion world as the manager of their very own boutique. The fun goes far beyond the shopfloor, as players can also let their creativity loose in four additional roles: hair stylist, make-up artist, model, and designer.

This third instalment in the fashion simulation series that has sold over 1.5 million units across Europe to date* lets budding fashionistas run their very own chic boutique in the bustling Beaumonde City, home to hundreds of colourful personalities. Characters visit the shop and describe what they’re looking for, and it’s up to the player to pick out the perfect look, choosing from 19,000 items like casual dresses, eye-catching t-shirts, and those all-important accessories including bags and earrings. Make the right recommendation and the customer will leave thrilled, sure to spread the word!

Girls Mode 3 has been updated with six items from Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Nintendo has added in three furniture pieces for the in-game dollhouse: an amiibo phone, Nook’s Home car, and a copy machine. Players also have access to Isabelle’s spring shirt, Lottie’s long sleeved shirt, and a Nook’s Home blazer.


Nintendo created a new patch for Girls Mode 3. In Japan, version 1.2.0 was released yesterday.

Here’s a quick overview as to what’s new/changed:

– Support for the Yarn Yoshi and Dr. Mario amiibo (in-game items)
– Fixes issues within modes like AR Photo and Photo Studio

Following yesterday’s announcement (and subsequent launch) of Splatoon apparel in Girls Mode 3, Nintendo has shared official images of the different crossover items. You can take a look at the new photos in the gallery below.

Splatoon merchandising is exploding both in the real world and virtual with apparel now coming to Girls Mode 3. This adds to the Squid plushies, Super Smash Bros. DLC, T-Shirts, and tons more that are both upcoming and already released, some exclusively in Japan at the moment while others available worldwide.

Splatoon comes out this Friday, May 29th. Expect Nintendo Everything’s review up tomorrow!



Nintendo has pushed out updates for the StreetPass Mii Plaza and Girls Mode 3 in Japan.

StreetPass Mii Plaza has now been patched to version 4.1. The update is all about addressing unnamed bugs and improving stability. At the moment, it’s not available in either North America or Europe.

The new version of Girls Mode 3 is now 1.1.0. This addresses a couple of things. First, Nintendo fixed a bug which gave the wrong western-style cloth when purchasing one from hangers or torsos inside other players’ StreetPass rooms or inside a room which Kimi gave. Nintendo also fixed display names for various transparent hangers and transparent torsos.

Girls Mode 3 sold 55,000 copies in its first week in Japan, based on Media Create data. That may not seem like much, but the title is expected to perform well in the longterm.

The last entry in the series, Style Savvy: Trendsetters, moved 66,000 copies in its first week. Media Create points out that the franchise has a long tail for sales, as Trendsetters has sold 381,000 copies in Japan. That’s roughly six times the sales of the first week. While a simple comparison can’t be made because the sales times differ, if Girls Mode 3 keeps its sales close to that of Trendsetters, over 300,000 lifetime sales could be expected.

Media Create also mentions that it will be worth paying attention to the sales of Girls Mode 3 during Golden Week. During this Japanese holiday, game sales tend to rise.

Girls Mode 3 has launched in Japan, and Nintendo is celebrating with a new 3DS theme. Fans can purchase the theme for 200 yen.
