Skincare?? SKINCARE games? Honestly, I had to rub my eyes multiple times here. The speed at which Nintendo is chucking out these interesting/weird/crazy DS titles designed to appeal to anyone other than the young male hardcore is truly impressive.
Although with the amount of male grooming products out there these days, maybe it's got a broader audience than first intended...
Konami, known for sports titles such as Pro Evolution Soccer, said that by marking a target date such as a wedding in the software, DS users can get customized, daily skin care instructions in the run-up to the big day.
"We have developed the software under the concept of getting pretty while having fun," Konami's digital entertainment corporate officer, Naoyuki Notsu, told a news conference.
Okay, maybe not. Not sure most boys are up for 'getting pretty' yet.
Give it time.
