Which one of the Pony Friends is your favorite? Do you have all 8? Which ones do you need to complete your collection? Let me know in the comments below!
Clearly taking a few pages out of the Nintendogs design document, the developers working on are doing with horses as Nintendo did with puppies. In Pony Friends, players buy a pony and care for it: feeding, accessorizing, grooming, and training are all part of the experience in this DS game, all leading up to the competitions where you'll "cheer" on your horse (through the use of the Nintendo DS microphone) all the way to the finish line. There's also a mode where you can take a stroll through nature trails, taking photos of wildlife in a challenge that's not unlike Pokemon Snap on the Nintendo DS.
It's a game that's obviously aimed not only at the younger crowd, but also kids of the female variety. But even though Pony Friends could and will be considered a "girl's game," there's plenty of stuff to do that'll keep the target crowd engaged for days. Everything that players do will be documented in their scrapbook, where the game keeps track of all the things done and things that need to be done. The only item that appears to be missing is the ability to connect DS systems together to show off your pony to other players -- the only Wireless option in Pony Friends is a "Demo Download" feature. At least this item will give other DS owners a taste of Pony care.
Pony Friends, developed by and published by Eidos, will be released on the Nintendo DS in May. Hit the media link below for some game footage and screenshots.
