Nintendo World, Nintendogs, Golden Sun for DS

Nintendo World

Nintendo World is opening in New York on 14th May. In addition to selling all sorts of Nintendo-branded goodies, Nintendo World will be a Pokemon Centre! You know, I haven’t been to New York City in a very long time…

Nintendogs

Nintendogs is a super cute Nintendo DS game which was just released in Japan. Nintendogs is a virtual pet simulation game, and several versions of the game, containing different dog breeds, were released at the same time. At this point, there is no official word on a US release date, though the working title for a Western release is Puppy Times. I prefer ‘Nintendogs‘, myself. Anyway, there is a Nintendogs-centred blog over at Puppy Times, written by the members of the Drinky Puppy Club (which originally started on the Gaming-Age Forums).

It’s games like Nintendogs that may push me over to getting a Nintendo DS over a Sony PSP. Actually, I have been keeping an eye on Nintendogs ever since I saw some screen shots and heard about the concept in the middle of last year. The game just looks too cute not to get!

I’ll make no secret of the fact that I don’t like the bog standard Platinum coloured DSs. The US is due for an Electric Blue Nintendo DS this June. However, I already have a Pearl Blue GBA SP, and I think too many blue gadgets would be too much. Hm… I will just have to mull that one over.

Golden Sun DS?

Meanwhile, over at Girl Gamers, someone posted some exciting news (rumour?) about a new Golden Sun game for the DS. Apparently the title translates to Golden Sun: The Path of Alex. Intriguingly, it seems as if you will be able to transfer your party data from Golden Sun: The Lost Age to the new DS game.

Note: If you haven’t played Golden Sun: The Lost Age to the end, by the gods, do not read anything in the post I linked to above. Massive spoilers. I myself haven’t yet finished the game, so I studiously avoided reading most of the comments and the bulk of what was written by the person who posted.

    I think that games like Nintendogs derived from things like the Tamagotchi. The gaming concept is the same. When you think about it, Nintendo must have known it would be a winner, as the Tamagotchi sold millions worldwide.
