Nintendogs + Cats website updated with a list of breeds for each game, videos

Saturday, 12th February 2011 14:59 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Nintendo has launched the Japanese website for Nintendogs + Cats with commercials and the like, but most importantly it provides a list of the breeds of dogs each game will contain.

Each one has nine breeds to choose from, which each breed being provided varying coat color and body type. The full set of 27 doggie-poos can be unlocked through continuing play or through StreetPass.

Cat breeds have three types along with the same sort of variations. We can’t read Japanese, but the first one shown looks like your standard American Shorthair, the second one is either a Chocolate Point Siamese – the kind with an apple head – or a Tonkinese, and the last one is a Persian.

As you play the game, you will earn the ability to rear kittens and can select from different fur patterns. Your kitties will take naps on windowsills and between book cases, use their claws, and climb scratching posts.

Cats will do their own thing, just like in real life, and you can even have three puppies or “kittehs” running around in the room at the same time.

Sounds like our house. Where’s our royalty check Miyamoto?

Here’s the list of dog breeds for each game below, as well as pictures. There’s a couple videos there as well.

The game’s slated as a launch release for 3DS.

    fact = 3ds is a failed product
    i thought 3ds is for casual and grandfathers even though it failed but know i am confirmed its only for cats and dogs so that they can shit in 3d.

    Anybody who wanted their dog and cat to shit in 3d buy 3ds

    Is the guy in the video supposed to reflect their target audience? There’s something VERY wrong in the world if this kind of game is aimed at anyone above the age of 13.

    Yep it looks shit, no surprise really since the 3DS hardware is out dated and is very weak, Nintendo should scrap this device and wait till the catch up with Sony’s current power which will happen no sooner than 2015, by then Sony will be way way ahead with their new NGP.

    Nintendo has mover to a different level with their hardware and marketing and continue to do so with the 3ds. Sony and Microsoft are trying to play catch up but Nintendos attitude of marketing hardware that is slightly less powerful than competitors but makes profit right out of the gate is absolute genius. Not all gamers like this direction but they still make some of the best games and if you truly want to pursue graphics, start saving and get a gaming pc :)

    Just for the record, the katakana below the cats lists them as: Standard, Oriental, and Longhair. Not very helpful, I know…but there it is.
