A very likely possibility, says one Nintendo official.
As part of its own running coverage of E3 2006, IGN had a chance to sit down and chat with Nintendo EAD’s general manager Takahashi Tezuka, during which they asked him about the possibility of the popular DS puppy sim Nintendogs coming to the Wii. His answer seemed rather promising:
“It's definitely a property that we're looking at because it was so well received and it did so well for us,” Tezuka said. “There are definitely conversations about where we can take it next. Nothing specific yet, but it's definitely something that's in our minds.”
As far as I’m concerned, I think it probably will. The technology seems very open to it, as the Wii isn’t such a far stretch from the DS. And, when you think about it, Nintendo already seems to be hinting at as much (apart from the comment above) by including a Nintendogs item in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, a game that will likely be a best seller for Nintendo. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if you had to pet the puppy with your Wii controller to get it off the screen (I’m just speculating, that’s all), just so they can see how well it is received.
That’s all for now, but we’ll keep you updated!
