Product Description

You step through a portal into a magical world where you’re a princess! Can you master your dance moves and woo one of the six handsome princes in time for the big ball? Its part rhythm game and part adventure game. In the game, you find yourself in a fantasy world where you have 30 days to get ready for the big ball; you'll have to master a variety of dances and pick a partner from one of six charming princes. You'll meet and woo the princes of your dreams through the game's large, branching storyline and involving event system. Once you've convinced a prince to be your dancing partner, it's time to go out on the dance floor! You'll use the Touch Screen to guide your character gracefully across the dance floor while matching your 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! Do you have what it takes to win one of the prince’s hearts?

So from Cave, yes, Cave, the company known for good shooting games comes this; localized by Natsume. As you can tell; it threatens you to be attacked by sparkles and flowers, at first, but that doesn't stop it from being fun.

This game, and it's sister game in Japan (Kuru Kuru Princess, published as Imagine: Figure Skater here in the US), both stand out with the cute art and fun stylus gameplay. It's a simple yet addicting game.

Basically, you have thirty days to woo a prince before the big ball, and you must not only win his heart but also master various dance routines that are controlled by strokes of the stylus. (You can also bring up a screen that shows the actual dance steps, if you care to try imitating them yourself in real life.) The stylus play is indeed simple, but oddly addicting and fun. So yes; this is a dating sim for girls, but with some added features. You can also unlock many outfits and dance routines.

I was actually impressed with the endings! While I felt the introduction was really corny, I found some of the princess fun, and some nice little plot points that were a bit surprising.

There are some negatives though, mainly two: large, typical ballroom style dresses clip quite badly (as you'll see within the first few minutes), and the little "yay!"s and "Yahoo!"s that sound every time you hit your mark get annoying. But these are admittedly easy to overlook once you get into the game.

I've been hearing about Japanese dating sims for boys forever. Princess Debut is a dating sim for girls! Your character swaps places with a princess and meets 6 different princes. One of them you pick for a dance partner and steady boyfriend, although you can go on dates with the other princes too. When you win a contest or do well in the game you win magical items which give you different outfits.
It's kind of geared toward young girls, but I bought it anyway as I would like more female dating sims to come over from Japan. It's a cute game and fun. The dances are an easy version of Elite Beat/Ouendan, and it's pretty fun to pick dialogue choices for your character to say.

sad thing: in order to complete your scrapbook you have to play the game through to the end several different times, and you have to pick different princes for dance partners. The other princes that you played through with are still in the game and I feel kind of sad for them.

While the game is said to offer various modes of game play, 'story mode' is the only one really worth playing. Sadly, if you're over the age of 13 or are known to breeze through games, this will be no exception. Practicing and learning new dances quantify the bulk of the game with some random dialogue between the characters.

A notable treat for gamers, regardless of age, is how the story-line relies highly on your interaction with other characters. I myself was not able to predict the results of my actions and at times it was quite amusing and may get you to play the game numerous times in hopes of tampering with the plot.

Ever wish prince charming would just magically appear and sweep you off your feet? Sadly, in real life, you have a better chance of winning the lottery. However, when you play "Princess Debut" you can experience what it's like to flirt and dance with a whole collection of princes! This game is one of those titles that's easy to over look: it's already about two years old, yet I only found it recently on a discounted games display at Wal-mart. Regardless, this is a pretty high quality game: I'll analyze each aspect of it from top to bottom:

Storyline 9/10: I docked a point for lack of originality at the start: the concept of a nobody becoming a princess itself has been pretty much murdered by Walt Disney. As for the talking animals? Cinderella anyone? Regardless, the story can still be fun and engaging: you play as a common school girl (her default name is Sabrina, but you can name her whatever you want at the beginning) who's bored out of her skull, when a princess who looks almost identical to her (and even has the same name) comes through the ordinary girl's wardrobe. The princess explains that she is from a parallel universe, and wants you to take her place for a season, because she can't dance and doesn't care much for princes (if only she knew how lucky she was). Whether you agree or not, you're taken by Kip (the princess's talking animal assistant) into the other world, and you can't go back because the Princess has the only key to the portal in which you warped (and she's back in your world). So, it begins: you're given a tiara which "transforms" your appearance into that of a beautiful princess, and then you're taken to a dinner party to meet the princes.
