505 Games has announced that Nintendo has confirmed that Hair Salon, a game based on the world of hair and make-up, will become the fist boxed DSi-only title in Europe when it is released on November 13.

Hair Salon, developed by Sonic Powered, promises to make full use of the Nintendo DSi camera function, allowing players to take photos of themselves or friends and create brand new looks and styles.

Hair Salon also claims to be the first game to use Automatic Face Recognition - a technical innovation that will automatically take a user’s picture once their face is in shot, ensuring a picture perfect photo every time.

"505 Games have a long, successful history with the Nintendo DS platform so it is only natural that we would respond and adapt innovatively to the new format," commented Victoria Martin, Global Brand Manager for 505 Games. "Hair Salon offers a fully interactive hairstyling experience for young girls and we are excited to see how the consumer will react to the content we’ve produced for the Nintendo DSi."
