The EA Play Label of Electronic Arts Inc. today announced My Garden for the Nintendo 3DS, a new title in development that will allow players to create custom gardens in a variety of unique and beautiful environments. Digital gardeners will get to choose from hundreds of flower and plant varieties as well as unique items to design, cultivate and enhance landscapes, Optimized for the coming 3-D platform.
With the help of a cute sidekick named Tanuki, players will test their green thumbs on a variety of missions that inspire them to create beautiful outdoor spaces in six unique environments such as an arid desert, the banks of a cascading brook, and a lush rainforest. Gardeners can take photos of their creations with the game’s free-roaming in-game camera in order to unlock rare and exotic flowers.As well as flowers, players can also unlock more than 20 different abilities for Tanuki, who uses those attributes to help the garden reach its full potential.
As the players garden grows it will begin attracting some visitors ranging from birds to butterflies, insects and other creatures.To attract more birds, simply whistle bird calls into the microphone to summon additional members of the flock. Alternatively, if too many unwanted visitors arrive at the garden gate, a quick shake of the Nintendo 3DS will send them scattering while also dispensing in-game coins that can be used to add a variety of new garden tools and more plants.
My Garden will be released alongside the hardware launch of the Nintendo 3DS.

I am not excited for this game so much, but I think it would be interesting to see the environments displayed in 3D.
