That's good... do you know if those games will show up in 3D too? It may sound like a dumb question, but I just wanna know if I should buy the new version of Nintendogs or if my current one will just show up as 3D anyways.

They are not in 3D and they look pretty crappy on the 3DS. Its not unbearable but I would much rather play DS games on my DS.

Please don't bump old threads - You can ask for recommendations in the stickied thread at the top of the DS/3DS board and if you have a general question, you can create a new topic.

As for your question, DS games do NOT have the 3D effect on the 3DS. Only 3DS games will have the 3D effect.
