When Nintendogs first came out last year, it wowed critics and gamers alike as an impressive showcase of the DS's capabilities. Now, over a year later, Nintendo releases a new edition, Nintendogs: Dalmatian and Friends. It's identical to the other versions except with different starting breeds to choose from (the same 18 breeds are available on all versions, they just vary in which ones are available at the start and which must be unlocked later).
Above: All of these breeds can be unlocked eventually regardless of the version you buy. This chart just shows which breeds are available at the beginning of each version.
For those of you who already own one of the other versions of Nintendogs, there is absolutely nothing new for you here. But for anyone who owns a DS and has yet to experience the joys of scooping virtual poop, now is the time.
