Mameshiba Evolves The Pet Genre With Trainable Beandogs


    mameshiba1You’ve raised dogs, cats, and maybe even cared for zoo animals on the Nintendo 3DS. Now comes the greatest pet challenge – beandogs. Columbia is working on a Mameshiba game for the Nintendo 3DS. In Japanese, the name is a portmanteau of bean and dog, which is exactly what the characters are.


    Mameshiba (temporary title) is a communication game so you’ll talk with the Mameshiba and they will teach the player trivia, it’s one of their habits. Each beandog has a different color and personality.


    From top left to bottom right we have Edamame, Sword Bean, The Scream, Chickpea, Chilli Bean, Black Bean, Pistachio, and Coffee Bean. All of these characters are confirmed in the game.

    There are also "American" Mameshiba – seven colorful Jelly Beans like peach, soda, strawberry, and strangely enough melon that aren’t in any screenshots so far. Mameshiba is slated for release in Japan this fall.
