NINTENDO LAUNCHES NEW NINTENDO DSi PINK BUNDLE FOR NINTENDO PRESENTS: STYLE BOUTIQUE

21 January 2010– If you are looking for the perfect gift for your loved one this Valentine’s Day, why not give them a pink Nintendo DSi and one of the most fashionable games in town, Nintendo Presents: Style Boutique, exclusively bundled together this February. This special console and game bundle will be available to buy in Europe on 12th February 2010.

Nintendo Presents: Style Boutique challenges you to create and run your own fashion store! Working your way up from a shop assistant in a store, you can offer clothing advice and outfits for customers. With each customer having their own style and personality, you need to choose her clothes carefully to make a successful sale. Once an established stylist, you can take the next step up to become an owner of your own fashion store, hand picking your own stock, taking part in fashion contests and choosing new clothes from the online shop.

You can share your creations and sell outfits across Europe to friends via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection in the Community Emporium. Players can also connect via wireless play mode to share experiences and give fashion advice to friends when they visit your shop, where they can browse your stock to create an outfit and ask for a discount. You can even indulge yourself in a shopping spree by treating yourself to the collections in friends’ and other players’ boutiques.

Nintendo DSi launched in April 2009 and is the third iteration in the range of Nintendo DS consoles, currently enjoyed by millions people around the world. It features the trademark dual screens and the simple-to-use touch screen that players have come to love. It also enables you to create, customise and share photos with friends&family, listen to and play with your favourite music and sounds, play over 1000 existing Nintendo DS games and download new games directly to the console using the Nintendo DSi Shop,

So give that special person in your life a truly memorable gift this Valentine’s Day and delight them with this chic combo of console and game, launching in Europe on 12th February 2010.
