Nintendogs + Cats News
Here's a fun fact for you
Remember the wonderful little good boy in Super Mario Odyssey? The one that ran around and played with you at the beach? Of course you do. Well, as it turns out, this very dog was actually already a famous Nintendo star, likely explaining its talent and confidence on screen when playing fetch with Cappy and digging up...
And an Animal Crossing 3DS theme
The latest batch of My Nintendo game discounts for Europe has now gone live, giving players the usual chance to grab a handful of games at discounted prices. There are seven new discounts up for grabs this time, all for the Nintendo 3DS (it would seem that My Nintendo has given up on Wii U at this point). As always,...
A new leash on life
In 2016, Nintendo quietly removed the Nintendogs + Cats games for the 3DS from the North American eShop without any warning. It left users in this region with no other choice but to seek out a physical copy if they wanted to spend some quality time with these adorable pets. Now, out of nowhere, all three games are back up on the...
And lots of Nintendogs
The latest collection of My Nintendo rewards has now gone live in Europe, with lots of games beginning with the letter "F" - and lots of dogs - being present this time around. One highlight, in particular, is Level-5 RPG Fantasy Life, which is seeing a discount for the first time. We enjoyed the 3DS adventure when...
A rare moment of clarity
A lot of what emerges from the mind of Paris Hilton isn't worth reporting on, but somehow the stars have aligned and this vacuous celebrity has uttered something actually worth taking note of. Hilton has tweeted a question that we've not pondered ourselves until now: why hasn't Nintendo put Nintendogs on smartphones?...
Wii U game + amiibo bundles are coming, too
Nintendo of America is jumping into the 'back to school' craze, but its latest announcements are good news for fans of all ages in North America. It's expanding the Nintendo Selects range, releasing a rather nice small New Nintendo 3DS bundle, and also planning some Wii U game + amiibo bundles. First of...
Link Between Worlds for £16
Unlike Nintendo of America, the European subsidiary of the company - for various legal and retail reasons we won't get into here - doesn't announce firm prices for products. When NoA says a game will be out for $60, those of us in Europe have the alternative of shopping around for the best deals. So, when major 3DS...
Legend of Zelda! Star Fox! Mario Tennis! More!
The Nintendo Selects series became a key part of the Wii catalogue, as high quality games became available at discount prices to tempt late adopters to give them a try. We're finally going to see the same initiative on 3DS, with Nintendo of Europe confirming six games that'll join the range for the...
A free Sonic Boom theme is also up for grabs
Nintendo has certainly bolstered its 3DS Theme Shop offerings since the store’s initial launch early last month. Each week, owners of Nintendo’s beloved handheld see an array of new offerings released on the shop, and this week is no different. Coming off the attractive designs celebrating the...
Four Nintendogs + Cats themes, too
Just recently four Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS HOME Themes were released in Japan, each adopting a different style reflecting the game, limited edition hardware and general artwork. We hoped they'd come to the West and, for Europeans at least, that day has come. Although they weren't listed in the official...
Nintendo's first "spokesdog", Uggie from Oscar-winning movie The Artist, is chilling out after his success by playing Nintendogs + Cats on a pink 3DS. The canine actor's career hits a new high in these photos as he pretends to understand the console's autostereoscopic display and touch screen interface. We know the dog's smart,...
Boxes and more
The download is in and it includes gnomes, armadillos, puppies, kittens and... boxes. Who said games characters can't have personality any more? DSiWare: Box Pusher (GameOn, 500pts) — You're the box pusher. Pushing boxes is what you do, and you do it well. In fact, you're the greatest box pusher this town's ever seen. Make and share...
Here's the full list of games available to buy today in Europe. Nintendo 3DS Download Software: Dillon's Rolling Western (Nintendo, £9.00/€10) — Play as a Wild West armadillo who must defend a town from marauding rocks using gatling guns, towers and more. We'll have a full review soon. DSiWare: Box Pusher (GameOn, 500pts) — Push...
Thought for paws
Cuddly pet 'em up Nintendogs + Cats is the next 3DS demo to land in Europe, due this Thursday. It's a bit of a change of pace from last week's demo of Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D but then variety is the spice of life. We'll have the full download for you in just a few minutes.
It's barking mad
Nintendo has shown that it's not afraid of seeking celebrity endorsements for its consoles, with a particularly cringeworthy Justin Bieber Christmas advert used to promote 3DS last year. The latest famous icon to lend their support to Nintendo is Uggie the dog, famous for his performance in popular movie The Artist. Naturally,...
The whole family's here
Nintendo of America has just confirmed the pink 3DS console will launch across North America on 4th December for $169.99. Officially called Pearl Pink, unlike the European release the machine is available in two varieties: while both will come with Nintendogs + Cats, one carries the Toy Poodle and New Friends variety while...
It's good to know what to expect
The newly announced Ice White and Coral Pink 3DS consoles look nice enough on their own, but it's the retail packaging that really shines. The pink console in particular has some of the cutest artwork we've ever seen for a Nintendo console, decked out in puppies and kittens and a pink box. Ice White is slightly less...
The colours keep flowing
Don't want a 3DS in Cosmos Black, Aqua Blue, Metallic Red or the newly-revealed Ice White colour? How about a Coral Pink console? As if wanting to suck every available penny in Europe, the console launches on 18th November – the same day as the Ice White 3DS, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Super Mario 3D Land and the newly reconfigured blue Wii. We hope you're..
1.7m pet lovers served
Of the 20 or so 3DS games available around the globe, so far two have broken through the million sales barrier — Capcom's Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition and Miyamoto's cute 'em up Nintendogs + Cats. According to Nintendo's latest investor report, the canine collection sold 1.71m units since launch, an impressive total considering Nintendo has sold 3.6m 3DS consoles..
Capcom's brawler flies off store shelves
Well the Nintendo 3DS system has now been available in the UK for a mere four days, but the launch title sales figures have already started rolling in and there are actually a few surprises to be found. It's not often that we see a third-party offering manage to beat out Nintendo's first-party titles, but it...
Ocarina, Paper Mario, StarFox, PilotWings and more!
Information is great, but if a picture speaks a thousand words then we have several novels' worth of words for you to digest with brand new screenshots of 3DS games. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Paper Mario, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Steel Diver,
We play PilotWings Resort, Nintendogs + Cats and more!
Our intrepid reporters Darren and James made a trip to London's rather posh Millbank Tower yesterday to experience the one and only 3DS. First things first: there were no new titles available here, no new information about the 3DS and no word on its release date and pricing. It was simply a...
Snuggle up with new pets on 3DS
Nintendogs is a worldwide phenomenon, having sold close to 25m units in its lifetime. Shigeru Miyamoto has often spoken of his desire to add felines to the mix, and now he's finally getting his wish as Nintendo announces Nintendogs + Cats on the way for 3DS. Like most of the titles for 3DS at E3 t
