For a game that seems to pride itself on graphical details, those 3DS Miis sure take you out of the experience.

How many cat breeds are going to be in each game? There weren't any listed in any of the lists...

At the bottom of this page about Nintendogs, there's this:

I'm assuming based on the website that these three cat breeds are the only ones offered. Of course, there will likely be at least three color variations for each cat.

But yeah. My guess is these three breeds will be in every game. It's more about the Nintendogs, after all.

Yep. Three of the same cat breeds for each version. Just in from Game Informer.

http://www.gameinfor...-announced.aspx

"Each game will feature three cat breeds as well. According to VG247, you can poke around with an American Shorthair, a Persian, and what what looks to be either a Chocolate Point Siamese or Tonkinese."

I'm not into these types of games, but the original Nintendogs was the gateway drug that got my Wife into playing the DS. I ended up getting her a DS of her own so I could have mine back, lol.

This game is the only reason I was even considering getting a DS at launch. But I'd essentially be paying $300 for the +Cats portion of the game. Just not worth it for me. But when I eventually do get a 3DS, this will be one of the first games I pick up.

Hmmm... I could give a flying crap about the dogs. While Nintendogs was certainly innovative, I only played it for about 10 minutes. My kids only played it for a day.

So I'm interested in this for the cats. I've been calling for a Nintencats for like 5 years now. I am getting a 3DS no matter what, so I will probably get this as it seems like the best launch title. I'd be inclined to wait but I'll want something to show off the 3D.

It is interesting to see that the same 3 breeds will be in each game. But based on the cover, I might want that second one since it looks like the twin girls (named Peach and Daisy) that we got a few years ago. And then the one on the right looks like poor Io (RIP)... I may have to get that one just for the cover. All my cats have always been American shorthairs (that's pretty much your average pound cat ;)). Hopefully there are WAY more than 3 color choices though.

That's too bad about the cover because if I was going to get it for the dogs, I'd probably choose the first one (not so much into the Toy Poodles).

Here's Peach sitting on our launch-day Wii:

I'm on the fence about this one. I played Nintendogs for about 3 days before giving it over to my girl who played it religiously for months and eventually bought all 3 carts to trade toys. If Pilotwings doesn't end up being launch day I'll probably get this.

this signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by satan. go ahead dauntlessly! make rapid progress!

I have 3 cats. I DO NOT need this game. :lol: Plus, the original was cute for a couple days, but it got old really, really fast. I hope they added a lot more substance to this one, other than kittehz of course.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

Yeah, that's my concern as well. Hopefully it is more than just kitties tacked on and of course, 3D...

Amazon is now letting folks preorder this game. I'll likely get in on the preorder this evening, and order my Hori screen protector as well.

Seriously, I know. Those covers are pretty bad. I'm glad I want the Golden Retriever one, because it's the one I can order with the straightest of faces. The Toy Poodle? Not so much.

I have 3 cats. I DO NOT need this game. :lol:


Because I have no pets, I'm probably a better candidate for this game. And when I had Nintendogs DS, I had cats, which weren't in the original game. So at least I didn't have that sense of neglect from playing with a virtual dog as opposed to the real one at your feet. ;)

I know this thread needs to be updated now, but I thought I would bump it for the launch.

I received this game and my 3DS yesterday. Upon turning on the game, you're greeted with the kennel, and the dogs there are definitely more detailed than in the first Nintendogs title. I didn't care for the look of the long-haired breeds in the first titles, but now, they're more richly detailed instead of simply looking thicker.

There are more color variations among the breeds this time. I surprised myself by picking a dachshund as my first dog. Although I had intended to get either a golden retriever or a shiba, the little dachshund just looked so happy, I had to take him home.

The game starts off at a slower pace, allowing you to spend more time with your dog and getting to know the controls. Instead of forcing you to teach your dog a whole array of tricks like the first games, you're prompted to teach it one, then told you can teach it more whenever you like.

The game definitely feels even more leisurely than the first, and I'm enjoying it a good deal. It looks fabulous in 3D, although the addition of Miis is a bit jarring next to the highly detailed environments and dogs.

Not sure if this was posted but apparently all the dogs are in all of the games so you only need to buy one.

One time when I had two catahoula pups that I was fostering one chewed on my gameboy with a game in it. The old gameboy and game survived, but got some nice battle wounds from the teeth. lol

I can't wait to get the 3ds to try it. Next month I should be able to get it.

While playing the game this evening, I was surprised to see it said I had a Streetpass in the Journal.
