Project Runway Video Game Confirmed

What: We blogged about a Project Runway video game for the Wii a while back, and now it’s been confirmed and will even feature appearances by Heidi Klum and Michael Kors. Would-be gamers can look forward to March 2nd, when the game is released.

What Says: The game puts players in the role of the show’s contestants, taking on theme challenges and designing the garments, getting their models dolled up with hair, makeup, and accessories, and eventually taking on the role of catwalk queen as they strut down the runway in their own creations.

What We Say: The video game industry is humongous, but so far, it hasn’t targeted the average female too much. With new family-friendly consoles like Wii and games like Project Runway, however, that’s about to change. This news comes just as we caught word about a new fashion-focused game called Street Style Memory. While it’s an old-fashioned board game, this tell us that there is a market for fashion games and what better platform than Wii, or even XBox and Playstation?

Are you excited about the Project Runway video game? Would you get into video games if there were more centered around fashion?
