Ubisoft Announces Next Dogz Title for Wii
« on: May 30, 2008, 05:39:26 PM »
With no sign of a Nintendogs for Nintendo's console, Ubisoft is offering up an alternative.
 http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/newsArt.cfm?artid=16056

 Nintendo has yet to bring its successful Nintendogs franchise to Wii, but Ubisoft seems perfectly happy to step in and fill the gap with their Dogz franchise. They recently announced Dogz 2008 (working title) exclusively for Wii, the second Dogz game to make it to Nintendo's console, and another entry in their animal-oriented "Petz" franchise (other examples include Catz and Horsez).  The title is due for release in Fall 2008.    


For this new Dogz game, Ubisoft is planning to let players adopt from 18 different breeds, and then dress up their puppies with more than 100 different accessories. The game will include activities like playing catch in the park and jumping rope, and Ubisoft also plans to allow dogs to travel to other Wii consoles to interact with other dogs.

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

There is no excuse for this.
It is inexcusable.

This news makes me angry. Why do you want to make me angry, Kairon?

I bet Nintendo has a nearly complete Nintendogs for Wii to be revealed at E3 and released this Fall.

I'd feel so sorry for Ubisoft if this happens.

I wouldn't.  I've seen the screenshots of Dogz.  I thought it was a DS game till I read the fact sheet.  If they lose buckets of money they deserve it for "lack of effort."

There's one way to beat Nintendo: Be better!

Wasn't Ubisoft the company that talked big about making Nintendo-quality games?

You've come closer to achieving that goal than Ubisoft has to Nintendo-like quality.
Insanolord is a terrible moderator.

Supposedly Nintendo complimented Ubisoft for the My Word Coach games. Then Ubisoft launched those games and somehow managed to engineer it so that nobody knew. They also priced the Wii game at $50. That stopped me from buying it right there.
