Princess Debut

Family Friendly Gaming

  • Excerpt: Natsume has been one of the longest home console, and hand held developers to produce video games for the female side of gaming. There once was a lie in the industry that women and girls had no interest in video games. Sure we have an interest in video games, just not the ones that used to dominate the market. Natsume acknowledged the reality that women and girls have a different interest when it comes to entertainment.

  • Cons: Blocky character design while dancing, First few dances are very easy, First few "days" of the game can be repetitive

Princess Debut

Video Game Generation
13 January 2009
  • Summary: All in all, this game is a great attempt at getting children (primarily young girls) interested in gaming by catering to that age-old concept that every girl wants to be a princess. It's a pretty solid game, albeit extremely simple. What's admirable is the amount of work that went into the art and branching of different conversations to create a different experience depending on how you behave toward different princesses.
  • Pros: Cute, hand-drawn anime characters, Interesting branching paths make for good replayability, Easy to understand, Good premise for young gamers, Solid "my first dating sim"
  • Cons: Can be disappointingly easy for seasoned gamers, Boring songs, Gameplay gets repetitive, Strange 3D models don't mesh well with 2D models.

  • Summary: Princess Debut is part relationship simulation, part rhythm game, and all fairytale.
  • Pros: Ballroom-based rhythm gameplay is extremely accessible, Lighthearted fairy tale storyline which still leaves some space for player-made decisions, Professional 3D dance sequences set to a wide variety of ballroom music
  • Cons: Dialogue-based relationship gameplay won't appeal to players not in the mood for prince-chasing, Need to play through Story mode many times to unlock songs, Need to repeat each song many times in Story mode to trigger the next one

Princess Debut: Der Königliche Ball

Looki.de
7 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Welches Mädchen wollte nicht einmal eine Prinzessin sein? Ok, ich gebe zu, bei mir wäre es auch am Tanzen gescheitert. Zum Glück ist in diesem DS-Spiel das Spielprinzip aber so einfach zu durchschauen und der Schwierigkeitsgrad angenehm niedrig, dass selbst ich bei den Wettbewerben Land gesehen habe. Für Kinder und junge Jugendliche macht man mit dieser Tanz-Software also sicherlich nicht viel falsch.
  • Pros: niedlicher Animelook, gelungenes Charakterdesign, Grafik auf Top-Screen nett anzusehen, bekannte Stücke passend zu jedem Tanzstil, übersichtliche Oberwelt, häufiges Speichern möglich, Stylus-Steuerung problemlos, niedlicher Storymodus, verschiedene Tanzpartner, freischaltbare Outfits, interessanter Filmmodus, gute Erklärungen, Spiel komplett auf Deutsch, Schwierigkeitsgrad angenehm
  • Cons: grundsätzlich zu viele Standbilder, Soundeffekte wiederholen sich zu oft, nur selten Blick auf den Top-Screen vertretbar, recht kurzer Umfang im Storymodus, wenig Abwechslung abseits der Tanzstunden
