This month is Responsible Pet Owners Month. And to mark it, Nintendo hired Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier from The Artist, as its official spokesdog. This month is also the Academy Awards.
Did you know that February was Responsible Pet Owners Month? Nintendo's marketing team does, and they've spared no expense in securing someone else's pet to help sell nintendogs + cats for the 3DS.
Today, Nintendo revealed it's releasing two new pink Nintendo 3DS bundles: one comes with nintendogs + cats: Toy Poodle and New Friends, and the other comes with nintendogs + cats: French Bulldog and New Friends.
Nintendo is offering 3DS owners the chance to get the 39th President's cat, an offer made all the more macabre because our 39th President, Jimmy Carter, once killed a cat.
The box art for 3DS game Nintendogs + Cats looks similar to the box art for Nintendogs. Make that looked.
Nintendogs + Cats doesn't just add better graphics, the creepy ability for the virtual pets to watch you and cats to the mix. There are also some neat augmented reality features built into this latest version of digital pet ownership.
Whenever new game hardware is released, there are the inevitable comparisons to the previous hardware. This isn't right or wrong or good or bad. It just is. And Nintendo's making that easier than ever.
There are three different versions of DS pet simulator Nintendogs: Dachshund, Lab and Chihuahua (later a Dalmatian version was released). But initially, Nintendo wanted more than three versions. Many more.
It is impossible to fairly judge the Nintendo 3DS, the next hot thing from the people who brought us the Wii, until you see it in person.
That is, if you live in Japan. Nintendo is rolling out its Nintendo World 2011 next year in Chiba, Japan. The Kyoto-based company has a list of titles that will be playable for those over six. You're over six, right?
