Barbie: Jet Set & Style
I know what you're thinking: when will it be released and is there multiplayer?
Sadly, THQ has decided to only publish the game on the Wii and DS, so I doubt they'll be any added multiplayer. I know, I know; we've been clamoring for a good Barbie multiplayer game since Race & Ride, but we'll just have to wait out a bit longer.
BUT, Game Machine Studios (GMS) has promised a list of new features and they've certainly delivered. Behold, the teaser trailer:

So let's talk about Barbie: Jet Set & Style.
What are you looking forward to the most? Do you think we'll be able to unlock extra costumes through our Riding Camp save files? Where are you going to visit first?
Feel free to open the conversation up to other Barbie games as well. Let's keep the flamewar down a bit though; we have enough Gloom and Glamours on the official forums, and we don't need to take that here.
