Today, the Little Friends: Dogs and Cats Twitter account announced that Little Friends: Dogs and Cats “will release in North America, Europe & Australia on May 28, exclusively on Nintendo Switch!” The Twitter account also responded to their release date announcement tweet with news that “Little Friends: Dogs & Cats will also be playable at PAX East & EGX Rezzed!”
So if you have the time and chance to attend either event, and want to meet your future furry friend, I’d recommend getting to their booth as soon as possible.
I covered the news a couple of weeks ago and discovered that Little Friends: Dogs and Cats released in Japan last year via Nintendoeverything.com’s article. I also found out that Sold Out Games, the developers behind Little Friends: Dogs and Cats, had announced plans to release the title in the west this Spring. This was also thanks to Nintendoeverything.com’s article covering the news.
At the time, we didn’t receive a solid release date. To check out that article, click here. However, it appears Nintendolife.com reported that the developer’s behind the title released a new press release that shares more information about the game. Here’s what was mentioned in the new press release, according to Nintendolife.com.
“Developed by Imagineer, Little Friends: Dogs & Cats is the first virtual pet simulator for Nintendo Switch. Choose from a variety of puppies and kittens to pet, feed, walk and play with in an adorable pet sim that’s fun for all ages. Take your Little Friends for walks, compete in the flying disc tournament and play with their favourite toys to develop a long-lasting friendship. Or dress them up in over 600 stylish accessories to make them look their best!”
As I mentioned in my previous article, I’m really pumped for this title. From what was shown in the announcement trailer (footage courtesy of the Sold Out Games YouTube channel), I believe this title will be great for those who want to take a break from their work-life. It may also be a great game-to-play on your spare time as well.
Speaking of play-time, I want to remind you again that individuals who are attending either PAX EAST or EGX Rezzed this year will be given the chance to play the title before it’s released in the west. Yet, since the Nintendo Switch’s region free, I believe you can also purchase the title on the Nintendo JP eShop using a Japanese Nintendo account.
However, my best guess is that the title’s Japanese version does not include other languages. If you’re okay with that, then go ahead and purchase the title on the Japanese Nintendo eShop. To learn how to do that, click here (article courtesy of eurogamer.net).
We’ll be sure to update you all when or if more Little Friends: Dogs and Cats news is shared via a gaming media website or from the title’s developers.
