Konami today shipped Diary Girl for the Nintendo DS. In case you haven’t heard of this game (and we hadn’t), Diary Girl for DS lets girl DS gamers interact with friends through their own customizable avatars and organize a calendar and address book in their own password-protected electronic journal.
Players are given their own avatar to customize with various clothes and accessories, as well as make-up and hair. For the girl on-the-go, advanced DS capabilities allow young gamers to talk to their friends in real time without a cell phone using the WiFi voice chat function of the game, and instant message with the Picto-chat style text messaging service.
With its daily calendar and address book, Diary Girl is being billed by Konami as “a lifestyle accessory for the busiest girl around.” However, it’s not just a mini-PDA: Diary Girl also lets players participate in mini-games including mazes, jig saw puzzles, card matching and personality quizzes.
