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?

Nintendo's push into the mobile space has been spearheaded by the likes of Super Mario, Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing, but Nintendogs has the potential to be a true killer app; a virtual pet that's at your side 24 hours a day.

The first game in the series managed to combine several of the Nintendo DS console's unique features to create a truly innovative piece of software, and the universal appeal of pets could make this a real money-spinner on iOS and Android devices.

Let us know if you'd like to see Nintendogs get a revival on smartphones, or if you'd prefer a full-fat Switch sequel instead.
