Nintendo of Europe has today announced a Nintendo DS price cut, to take affect on October 7th, the same day as the European launch of Nintendogs. Those in the UK can expect a ?10 price drop, bringing the cost to ?89.99. The rest of Europe will be seeing a 20 ? price drop, bringing the cost to 129 ?. What's more, Europeans will be seeing a bundle similar to the one announced for North America a couple of days ago, although, instead of a "Best Friends" version of the game, where the six most popular breeds are included, they will get the regular "Dachshund" version, which will come with the pink DS, or the "Labrador" version, which will come with the blue DS (check the press release for images). The bundles will be available for ?99.99 (149 ?), which means Europeans can pretend there was no DS price cut, and they are simply receiving Nintendogs> for free! Tr?s bon!
Oh, and when the game launches in Europe, don't forget about our Nintendogs Strategy Guide.
