Breeds Announced For Nintendogs + Cats

The newest iteration of the Nintendogs series looks to be following closely in its predecessor’s footsteps. Nintendogs + Cats will have three separate versions of the game with a set number of breeds in each. They’ve upped the ante to 27 dog breeds this time however, with 9 to each cartridge; compared to the 15 total of the first game with 5 to each cartridge. It doesn’t seem official yet as to how you unlock the breeds not available to you from the start, but since it was do-able in the original through trading with another DS system close by (and with the advent of Nintendo’s fancier online system for the 3DS) it would seem silly if they didn’t implement some sort of online trading system. Even a way to set up a doggie daycare service so when you know you’ll be away for a few days, you can send your furry companions over to your friend’s 3DS so they can watch over them would be pretty cool. There’s just a lot they could do here and I hope it isn’t just Nintendogs in 3D with stupid cats.  Here’s the complete lists of your future best buddies:

Toy Poodle and Friends

  • Toy Poodle
  • Pembroke Welsh Corgi
  • Mini Schnauzer
  • Boxer
  • Bull Terrier
  • Labrador Retriever
  • Shih Tzu
  • Jack Russell
  • Pomeranian

French Bulldog and Friends

  • French Bulldog
  • Shetland Sheepdog
  • Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
  • Chihuahua
  • Dalmatian
  • Yorkshire Terrier
  • German Shepherd
  • Husky
  • Basset Hound

Shiba Inu and Friends (Golden Retriever and Friends for US/Europe)

  • Shiba Inu
  • Golden Retriever
  • Beagle
  • Mini Pinscher
  • Dachshund
  • Maltese
  • Great Dane

It does seem like the cats are getting the short end of the stick here, as each game just gets the 3 same cat breeds automatically. Even Nintendo knows dogs are cooler.
