  • 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.

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.
  • 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.

Nintendo World Report

  • 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

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...
  • 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, interessant...
  • 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
