Nintendo News | Virtual Pony Friends for DS Pet Lovers

By Jorge Ba-oh 28.10.2006 13

Ever wanted a pony but simply could afford the price tag and hassle involved with looking after and raising a real-life creature? Eidos have the solution, jumping in on the virtual pet action with Pony Friends for the DS, a virtual simulation for pony lovers.

In a similar fashion to other pet simulators, players can chose from various breeds, look after their chosen pony, take it on trail rides, collect items and rare gifts and most importantly accessorise.

  • Brush with the stylus to make sure it's the best-groomed pony in the stable
  • Clean your pony with shampoo and conditioner to give it a shiny coat
  • Find new trail entrances and hidden gifts by touching the screen on a trail ride
  • Spot animals on trail rides with the stylus
  • Use the stylus to write the name of your pony
  • Place rosettes and update your secret diary everyday
  • Use the stylus to remove stones from your pony's shoes
  • Keep up to 3 ponies in your stable at any one time
  • Stay tuned for future updates!

    I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

    Hoping to grab the early teen female market, it would seem...

    Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich. They were the statement and the definition."
