New DS colors to be packed with Nintendogs variant

Versions of the handheld will include a "Best Friends" edition of popular puppy simulator.


Given the success of Nintendo's new puppy simulator Nintendogs and the company's focus on its DS handheld system this holiday season, it was only a matter of time before prospective DS owners were offered a bundle deal. However, Nintendo's doing the conventional wisdom one better by creating a limited edition bundle with DS colors and a variant version of Nintendogs, neither of which will be available separately.

The bundle hits stores October 24 with a $149.99 price tag, and includes either a pearl pink or teal-colored system, and a "Best Friends" version of Nintendogs that lets gamers start the title with the six most popular breeds from the three existing Nintendogs games: Labrador retriever, golden retriever, German shepherd, beagle, Yorkshire terrier, and miniature dachshund. As with the other versions of the game, all 18 breeds are unlockable in the "Best Friends" edition. Other bonuses in the package include a Nintendogs-branded, bone-shaped screen cleaner and a paw-print-riddled Nintendogs skin for the system.

To see if the already-available editions of Nintendogs are good doggies or if they need to be sent to the pound, check out GameSpot's full review.
