Hey Bratz Fans!

Again, just a quickie update on the new Bratz: Fashion Boutique videogame! GameStop’s website has added a pre-order listing for the game here 🙂 As you can see, GameStop has a SRP of $24.99 and a release date of October 24th, rather than $29.99 and October 30th, as Amazon has listed. Do notice that GameStop’s listing is for Nintendo DS though, rather than 3DS like Amazon’s, so it is possible that the two versions will see separate releases and pricing. Also worth noting is the cover art on the site! It looks really plain right now, which leads us to think that it may not be the final art, but we’ll find out soon enough!

The current cover art for Bratz: Fashion Boutique. Subject to change 🙂

The listing also has a newer, more detailed description of the game than the press release:

“The favorite fashion divas are back in the all-new Bratz: Fashion Boutique video game. Join the Bratz gals that have a passion for fashion, Yasmin, Cloe, Jade, and Sasha, on a mission to save Stylesville’s local mall before it closes! Help run the hottest fashion boutiques to earn money and stop this fashion faux-pas. Start fabulous trends, customize outfits, and sell your personal clothing line to new customers to earn money and help save the mall!

  • Accessory Essentials: With hundreds of clothes and accessories, players can craft endless collections in workshop mini-games. Cut and sew different fabrics, buttons, and colorful decorations to create unique, couture outfits.
  • Cool Catwalk: Hit the run-way and organize fashion shows to start the hottest trends and show off your best collections.
  • Beautiful Boutiques: Customize and decorate fashion boutiques, each offering a hip-new style unique to each Bratz doll. With gorgeous designs and creative layouts, attract new customers to your store and help save the Bratz Fashion Mall!
  • Fabulous Makeovers: Makeover your customers into stylish divas! If they love their style, your fame will rise and you will bring in more customers.”

While the repeated misspelling of “Stilesville” does concern us, we can look past that given all of these amazing play features! From the looks of it, almost everything in the game will be customizable, from the fashions, to the boutiques, to even the Bratz themselves! We can’t wait to get our hands on a copy!

Hey Bratz Fans!

Amazon.de, the German branch of Amazon, has listed several of this fall’s Bratz and Bratzillaz products! While most of the products listed have been previously announced, the listings provide new information that was previously unconfirmed. You can view all of the listings here.

Perhaps the most exciting of them all is a new winter-themed line called Pink Winter World! This line, previously misinterpreted as “Pink Water World”, has been known of for about a week or two, though this is the first legitimate confirmation of the line, and also lists previously-unknown information! Amazon.de has listings up for a Yasmin, Cloe, and Meygan doll. We’re a bit concerned that “Closmin” may be back in action, but it is a possibility that Sasha is in the line as well, since she’s rarely sold overseas. According to the listings, the dolls will each include two outfits – one for their winter sports, and a second for a ski lodge party, in addition to a doll-sized cup of cocoa, and a keychain for you! This reminds us a lot of Wintertime Wonderland from 2003 and 2004, which also included two outfits (and for the same functions at that!), doll-sized cocoa, and keychains for you! We’re hoping these girls aren’t too “pinked out” though, since that’s not a very Bratzy look, if you know what we mean 😉

Also listed are the Crystalicious, Chic Mystique, and Boutique lines. While the Crystalicious and Chic Mystique listings don’t reveal anything new, the Boutique listings confirm that each doll will include two complete fashions (And yes, that means TWO pairs of shoes!), a mannequin whose stand also works for the dolls, sales counters, cash registers, scanners with real chirping sound effects, bracelets, earrings, sunglasses, tote bags, purses, shopping bags, and shoe boxes – all neatly packed in a box which doubles as a character-specific boutique (Yasmin Chic & Co, Angel Cloe & Co, L.O.V.E. Jade, and Sasha’s isn’t listed)

And in the world of Bratzillaz, there are listings for the dolls, pets, playset, secret message pad, fashion packs, and accessory packs! We now know that the Secret Message Pad will be a writing pad of some sort, which includes an “invisible ink” pen and a “magic light” which will reveal whatever you write (We can assume the light will be a black light), and that the set will double as a picture frame! While the listings for the fashion and accessory packs don’t reveal any specific details, the titles are now confirmed. The fashion packs are called “Romantic Spell”, “Midnight Magic”, “Blood Red Charm”, “True Blue Style”, and “Changed-Up Chic”. We’re guessing Romantic Spell will be Jade’s, Midnight Magic will be Yasmina’s, Blood Red Charm will be Sashabella’s, True Blue Style will be Meygana’s, and Changed-Up Chic will be Cloetta’s. The accessory packs are called “Wicked Night Out”, “Charmed Life”, and “Academy Style”. We think Charmed Life will include lots of shiny bling for the witches, Academy Style will include some school-themed accessories for the girls’ school of magic and fashion, and Wicked Night Out will include fun “dressy” accessories like clips, headbands, etc.

We’re so excited to see everything! Let’s hope we can see some photos soon 😀

Hey Bratz Fans!

Today we have an exciting announcement – MGA has teamed up with Activision to create a NEW Bratz videogame for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS systems this fall! The title is “Bratz: Fashion Boutique”, though whether or not this will officially tie into the Bratz Boutique line for fall is to be announced. The following is the press release, which was posted on GoNintendo 🙂

Here’s the official logo for the game!

Minneapolis, MN – June 7, 2012 – Prepare for fabulous glitz-n-glam as Activision Publishing Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), in partnership with MGA Entertainment, today announced that the all-new Bratz®: Fashion Boutique video game. Planned to arrive this fall for the Nintendo 3DS™ and Nintendo DS™ hand-held systems, players will join the beloved Bratz® gals, Cloe™, Jade™, Yasmin™ and Sasha™, to live out their dream of running the hottest fashion boutiques in all of Stylesville.

“For more than ten years, the Bratz brand has connected with style-savvy young girls across the country,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President, Activision. “We are delighted to work with MGA to deliver an authentic, interactive way for young girls to pursue their interest in fashion.”

Stylesville is in fear of losing their local mall and they need the Bratz help to stop this fashion faux pas!

O M G, we’re beyond psyched! We can not wait to see the Bratz strut their stuff in 3D – and with over 100 different outfit combinations! We’re so curious to see which art style the new virtual Bratz will reflect, too! We’ll be on the lookout for more news on this exciting release. 🙂

PS, Anyone else peep that misspelling of “Stilesville”? hehe

Hey Bratz fans!

Everyone’s super psyched for this fall’s Bratz lines to hit shelves this summer, and with good reason – what we’ve seen so far is H-O-T, hot! But in case you haven’t been keeping up, here’s the low-down on what to expect from the Bratz this fall.

One of the first lines you can expect is called Miss IndepenDance. Hot on the heels of this spring’s seasonal line, Heart Breakerz, comes this fierce and festive Fourth of July line, which will feature the core four girls in red, white, and blue fashions and hair streaks with matching hair extensions for you! It seems like MGA’s getting in the habit of making sizzlin’ seasonal lines out of older limited editions, which is fine by us – We’ve got our fingers crossed for a New Year’s line, MGA! 😉 No photos at this time, but we’re expecting some soon…

And the basic line for this fall will be Strut it! It will feature the core four girls, as well as the return of fan-favorite, Fianna! The new artwork posted on Bratz.com is for this line, and we’re happy to report that so far, the dolls look pretty close to their art! At the moment , we have prototype shots for Yasmin, Cloe, Sasha, and Jade, plus a final promo for Yasmin. We love how each girl’s personality is clearly represented in their outfits, while staying on-trend at the same time. Strut it! indeed 😉

L-R: Cloe, Jade, Yasmin, and Sasha. Jade and Yasmin will be very different from their prototypes, but Cloe and Sasha should be pretty close!

Here’s the final promo shot for Strut it! Yasmin. This is what the doll will look like on store shelves 🙂

What is expected to be one of the hottest and most scandalously stylin’ lines this fall is Biker Babez. While not many specifics are known about this line as of yet, toy fair reports say the line will feature the Bratz (Though which Bratz are included is unknown, one would assume the core four are included – We’d love to see the Bratz Pack’s resident bad boy Cade too!) in hot leather fashions and (get ready for this one) tattoos! Each doll will also include a tattoo sleeve for you so can join the Bratz in their speed-demon fun! No photos at this time though.

One of the bigger lines for this fall is called Bratz Boutique. As the title suggests, the theme of the line is shopping! Surprisingly, this is actually the very first shopping line that the Bratz have ever had! This line includes the core four – each dressed to impress in cool casual fashions that show off each girl’s unique style and attitude, along with a fully-stocked store full of shopping accessories! As to be expected, additional outfits are included in each girl’s shop, and third fashions may be included as well, though it is unclear at the moment. Regardless, this line is definitely one to watch for!

L-R: Jade, Yasmin, Cloe, and Sasha. Ignore the “Sasha not included” text, that’s just a distribution thing! Keep in mind that these are prototypes too 😉

Another biggie for this fall is a hairplay line called Style Starz. This line is special because for the first time ever, the Bratz will be rockin’ interchangeable wigs! While no full photos have been released as of yet, toy fair reports say the line’s general look is “very Lady GaGa”, which is great in our book!

And on the topic of hairplay lines, Crystalicious will be following the example set by Featherageous with a quirky name and floor-length saran hair! This line will feature the core four in chic and shimmery party dresses adorned with sparkly flowers and ruffles. The hairplay gimmick is that each doll includes fun crystals to add to your dolls’ hair – and your’s too!

Here’s the group promo for Crystalicious (L-R: Sasha, Cloe, Jade, and Yasmin) as well as three individual photos of Cloe, Yasmin, and Jade!

Another trademark for the Bratz are their sleepwear lines, and this fall we’ll see a new line called Satin Sleepover. At the moment, literally nothing is known of this line other than its name, but based on that, we’re expecting something along the lines of a Nighty-Nite 3.0! If that truly is the case, then we’re beyond excited!

One of the more extensive lines for this fall is called Chic Mystique. Like last year’s Masquerade line, this will be a costume party-themed line, only way more over the top! This line stars the core four in stunning ball gowns and masks – with a twist! At the pull of a lever, their gowns lift up to reveal gorgeous wings and a funky party outfit! Also worth noting is the absolutely brilliant new shoe mold this line debuts, as well as the return of wild hair colors for the Bratz. According to Toy Fair photos, this line will also have an accompanying line of Funky Fashion Makeover styling heads.

This is the group promo for the Chic Mystique, L-R: Cloe, Sasha, Jade, and Yasmin!

Also upcoming from the Bratz is a new spin-off line called Bratzillaz. The Bratzillaz are a group of teenaged witches whose pets each possess a special power unique to them! This line is going to be a major brand for MGA this fall, with a line of dolls, sold-separately pets, fashion packs, accessory packs, and even a web series! So far we have the names of two of the Bratzillaz girls – Cloetta and Sashabella. These names have us wondering if the line will tie into the main Bratz plot somehow…? Time will tell!

These are the four Bratzillaz dolls. We’re not sure who is who at the moment, but they’re all super cute!

Here’s a shot of the Bratzillaz display at Australia’s Toy Fair this past February! Photo taken by Timmy AKA Araparap

Well Bratz fans, that’s the scoop for now! Keep checkin’ back for more!

Stay tuned & stay stylin’!
