A new US patent has been filed for what appears to be a nintendo gs Mobile game, possibly for iPhone and Android devices. The public patent was filed on January 17, 2023 and shows how the hugely popular pet raising sim will translate to the mobile landscape.
Descriptions within the patent show augmented reality (AR) technology similar to Pokemon Go used to simulate in real time the pet and other virtual objects inhabiting the space around the player.
The release of such a title by Nintendo could be very popular as the original Nintendogs on DS were widely acclaimed and sold very well with 23.96 million copies sold worldwide.
When is the Nintendogs mobile game coming out?
There is currently no release date for Nintendogs on mobile as the patent only describes an early concept and “build” of what a Nintendogs app might look like before the product is actually constructed and released. One of the more obvious considerations might be the potential for microtransactions to make the app and experience more profitable for Nintendo.
With Pokemon Go and Pikmin Bloom receiving significant investment from Nintendo, we can expect the company to engage the mobile gaming market even more with Nintendogs in the future.
In other news, MW2 and Warzone 2 Season 2 have a confirmed release date, and Bethesda and 343 Industries have been hit by Microsoft’s recent layoffs, but what does that mean for Starfield and Halo?
