There was a time, which already seems very remote, in which Nintendo set out to turn its portable platform, the Nintendo DS, into the host of titles tremendously adorable that stole the hearts of millions of gamers around the world. We talk about nintendogs, the title in which we could raise an adorable dog, play with him and teach him tricks. Both this title and its derivatives have earned a place in the hearts of an entire generation, but they have been forgotten for a long time. Or, rather, in the drawer of memories. Because the fans do not forget, and now they see closer than ever the illusion of his return.
The big N patent that could have to do with Nintendogs
Most of the Nintendo patents that come to our knowledge usually have to do with the hardware of its consoles and accessories, or with the use of systems within it. This time it is something different, since alludes to the smartphones. It consists of software that allows players to control the location of an object with the touch screen of the device. This by itself may not say much, but the image used to illustrate patent it is more than suggestive.
The patent itself, of course, means absolutely nothing. It could well be related to another type of software designed for the various titles that Nintendo has on mobile platforms, such as Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. However, the image used is so specific, and so reminiscent of Nintendogs, that it is inevitable to have a little illusion about it. As they say: 1% probability, 99% faith.
