The Augmented Reality functionality of the 3DS was kind of lost on me until I unlocked it in Nintendogs + Cats. Now I'm able to make my almost-real tri-colored Pembroke Welsh Corgi appear in my environment. And with the added bonus of 3D, he's almost-really real.
In the gallery below you'll see the hilarious results of combining Nintendogs + Cats and the various AR cards included with the 3DS. Most of these give your puppy a costume to wear. I posed him around my apartment. My favorite is my corgi standing proudly over my pile of dirty dishes. Although wall-climbing Pikmin Corgi is also quite wonderful.
I wonder where his ears went.
