It looks like Nintendogs
is about to see some competition in the cutesy puppy gaming market this fall. However, the new title, A Lovely Puppy,
seems more mini-game heavy, unlike the gotta-play approach that Nintendogs
takes. All the same elements are there -- feeding, training, playing -- but these puppies want to make sure you can solve puzzles, too. Also, instead of photorealism, the Lovely Puppy
game utilizes a soft, pastel 2D style reminiscent of another upcoming game, Love Love Hamster
. A Lovely Puppy
features 18 dog types out of the box, and you can even choose the type of coat.
It's nice to see a different approach rather than a direct clone. Though we have very few details right now, we think this is one title that will eventually see a worldwide release. No one can resist the power of the puppy.
