Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development’s general manager, Takahashi Tezuka, was interviewed back at E3 2006 about a Nintendogs Wii sequel to the Nintendogs virtual puppy-raising simulator on the Nintendo DS, which sold nearly 18 million copies of the various editions since 2005. While it seems like a good fit with the interactive Wii controls, he was careful with his words, suggesting that Nintendo had already thought of the idea.
IGN asked: “Will you bring Nintendogs to Wii?”

Mr. Tezuka answered: “It’s definitely a property that we’re looking at because it was so well received and it did so well for us. There are definitely conversations about where we can take it next. Nothing specific yet, but it’s definitely something that’s in our minds.”
Will the Nintendogs jump out of the Super Smash Bros. Brawl screen into their own Wii game? Only time will tell. Nintendo will show off their unannounced future lineup at the E3 Summit 2008 on July 15-17th.
