This is a robotic dog, with tech features like “BEACONSENSE”, which allows the dog to be aware of its surroundings and make movement responses based on that. Other features include “GESTURESENSE,” and this allows the robotic dog to create responses from the user’s actions, like responding to the user clapping. The dog even comes equipped with special wheels, which are designed to facilitate smooth movement across different types of floors.

Features: This is an exciting breakthrough for all Nintendo players as the company moves forward with plans to implement game apps. The two games that will be added are “Animal Crossing” and “Fire Emblem.” The company is already testing out apps and recently launched Nintendo’s first smartphone app in March. This app was not a gaming app, so it will be interesting to see the games develop into apps.
