It disappeared nearly 3 years ago.
Back in August of 2016, Nintendo removed the Nintendogs + Cats digital games from sale on Nintendo eShop in North America. This left trying to find the game at local stores as the only feasible way to get it. It also saw the physical Nintendo Selects version raise in price from $15 USD to $20 USD.
Now, fast forward almost three full years later, and all games have reappeared on the North American eShop, with a new deal for My Nintendo account holders. Should you head over to My Nintendo and redeem a coupon, you can get French Bulldog and New Friends for 40% off (or, $11.99 USD).
Writer’s Note: I’m actually really glad it’s back. What do you think?
