    I already bought a Pearl Pink 3DS / nintendogs+cats bundle for my daughter for Christmas. May I please be exempted from exposure to this???

    lol

    I got this game for $5 and I'm still debating on whether it was worth it.

    No talented spokesdog can get this game out of the doghouse even if it really is cute.
    And it's rather generic and ugly-looking, like the game.

    Nintendo has gotten into the "kawaii mascot craze", they can milk that forever even when Mario goes out of style.

    That dog needs to go. Now. If it were cute and fluffy like the dog I had, I'd say anything else. Something close to this:

    Marketing campaigns from Nintendo are not only fun, they are ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY.

    Unsurprising. Nintendo recently have been all bark and no bite. With this new campaign, it just seems like they're barking up the wrong tree.

    Well that's what I think, I've only pawed through the article.
