The phenomenal Nintendogs gets a new breed of life in "Dalmatian & Friends" edition, where the once hard-to-unlock Dalmatian becomes the focus of attention.

"With an initial choice of six breeds to own and a further 14 to be unlocked, Nintendogs Dalmatian & Friends Edition sees the previously hard-to-unlock Dalmatian amongst the initial choices, along with the most popular dogs from the previous versions - Dachshund & Friends, Labrador & Friends and Chihuahua & Friends. If you’ve missed out on the handheld phenomenon of the year so far or have just been as yet unable to unlock your very own spotted puppy, Nintendogs Dalmatian & Friends is the companion for you."

Owners of one of the original Nintendogs titles don't need to fret, Dalmatian & Friends doesn't expand on the title and offers the same gameplay and features of the originals.

Nintendogs Dalmatian & Friends Edition goes on sale across Europe, exclusively for the Nintendo DS from 16th June 2006 for the estimated retail price of around £29.99.
