I got style boutique for the DS first, so when I heard that they had made a new version for the 3DS I must admit I was a little excited.
I watched the trailer for the new version and thought oh, so it's a little like the older one, just more in it.
And that's basically what the new style boutique for the 3DS is - plus better graphics. You still get to customize you're character, but there's more options and you still get to have you're own boutique, which you buy all stock for and you get that stock in you're home as well, which you can now customize and buy furniture and the like for and there is still the option of doing hair and make-up and buying such things for your character.
And you can still enter competitions and win prizes, from them to boost your boutique reputations and what not. The world is a little bigger and you can get photo shoots done, either by yourself or be invited by a 'friend' to have a photo shoot together. Although now you can't sent out fliers and the like and have sales the way you could in the older version, although you can customize the inside of your store and the outside as well, which is new and also dress the manikins.
But one of the biggest changes is that you can now sell male clothing and therefore have male customers.
The way that you help customers in store is pretty much the same as the older version, you choose which customer you want to help and pick out items or a whole outfit for them, then the try it on and say what they think.
People will also come in and ask you to spend time with them outside of the store, such as at the park or down town or going to a photo shoot, which you will get a photo of afterwards to put in your album. Although this does get full quickly, so you can't keep every photo.
There is also the option to find out your style, which is outside of the main game. This is where you dress a chosen model, they then walk the runway and at the end you are told what your style is, such as how cool or cute your style is.
There is also the online shopping option and the option to connect your boutique to friends with the game and therefore also shop at their boutique. Although your friends has to have the game to do this.
