We were all set to make fun of Cosmetic Paradise, but then we thought about it and realized that a makeup game on the DS will probably be something of a hit in Japan. Here's our reasoning:
All people in Japan have at least one DS-- including little girls.
This may be marketed as a "training" game for cosmetics, and the word "training" opens the sales floodgates.
Using the stylus to apply makeup is probably a lot of fun for people who like dolls and stuff.
We admit, then, that this game is a good idea, from a business perspective, at least. And it does seem to have some adventure game elements, which we support. What do you think? Are there any little DS fans in your family that would enjoy this kind of thing?
